I thought I got rid of this issue, but it turns out that it's back. Please refer to this post:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/113401/svchostexe-crashes-my-laptop/

I'm thinking of reinstalling Windows, but that's a last resort for me.

A friend did tell me that I could call Microsoft with the "Fault Bucket" number and they would direct me to a hotfix. Is this true?

Any help, again, is very much appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Daniel in Tulsa

AFAIK, fault bucket errors just indicate that an app has failed to run smoothly, for whatever reason. I believe that the term "fault bucket" is just a Windows tracking thing, with the real details of whatever is wrong...to be found in Event Viewer.

I get them all the time when my video-editing application hangs. Nothing wrong with the app that I can fix and nothing wrong with the way the system balks at the software. Updating the app may cure some of these.

Well if that's the case, then my laptop is 'balking' at svchost.exe, which is beyond my knowledge. I guess I'll be calling Mircosoft and start the battle. LOL.

If anyone else has any ideas, they're more than welcome. :thumbsup: And thanks for the input, Louis. Much appreciated.
