I have a laptop with Windows Vista. I was checking my facebook and then my internet webpage expired. Whenever I tried to refresh the page a notificationg came up stating that

"GoldS has stopped working".

Also along with this another notification pops up stating that :

Host Process for Windows Services stopped working and was closed - A problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will notify you if a solution is available.

Any help would be greatly Appreciated
