I am trying to fix my step-father's computer. We are not sure what is going on with it, but he recently started getting shutdown messages when he began using his computer.
The first error message that comes up shortly after boot up is something along the lines of :
"Generic host process for Win32 Services encountered a problem and needed to close" it then asks to send an error report. If you send one it goes through the sending report indication message and if you click ok the error will pop up again. If you choose not to send the report the message just keeps returning.
At random intervals (usually within 15 minutes of booting up the computer) he gets a shutdown message which says something like:
"Windows must now restart because the DCOM Server Process Launcher service terminated unexpectedly. NT Authority\System" And gives a 60 second countdown.
I have tried recovery console from the windows xp cd but the errors still pop up.
Another thing to note is the computer cannot enter safemode. It freezes at one of the drivers and then just reboots itself.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
