Shortly after staring up from a fresh boot (the time can vary between a few minutes up to about 10 minutes max, I get a message in a box "Host process for Windows Services stopped working and was closed." After I get this message I can access the Internet but my connection time is really slow. I can't open other programs on my system and get the following message "The service cannot accept control messages at this time." My screen freezes and after a few clicks of the mouse my screen goes "whiteish" and I get another message that says "Windows Explorer is not responding." I am presented with an option to "stop the program" or "restart." When I select "restart" my screen goes black and after about 1 minute (seems longer) my icons come back on the screen. After this I am unable to do much of anything with the computer and need to reboot in order to fuction much at all. This has been going on for some time now. I've run several "malware" programs and rarely pick up anything. I also do a full scan with Norton 2010 and once it indentified a virus which it deleted. I know something is wrong but cannot figure out just what. Any help you could offer would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
