Hello I am running Windows XP SP3 and have recently been receiving a "generic host process for win32 services has encountered a problem and needs to close" error. When it occurs it turns off my "Sounds and Audio Device Properties" and I am no longer able to select anything due to it all being grayed out. I have attempted to run a simple system restore but after my PC restarts it says "System Restore can not be completed." I have run Malwarebytes, CCleaner, and an AVG virus scan and nothing has come up. It also changes the explorer shell from the XP graphics to the, what looks like, classic Windows shell. When I restart my computer it fixes the problem, only temporarily(It always occurs but it happens randomly). If more information is needed let me know please, and next time I see the error I will get a screen shot of both the error and what my settings are doing.
Thanks in advance.
PS - i just got this issue again so here are a couple screen shots of what I was talking about.
