Hi, been having a really annoying issue today involving one of those "Host process for Windows Services has stopped working and has closed" deals. Thus far I've tried alot of general fixes from complete scans including svc in command prompt and chkdsk at startup, even cleaning out old temp files. Nothing has worked. To compound my frustration, it seems to be linked with an inability to access Windows Update. It appears to have only started today, and what generally happens once it closes is Vista attempts to restart it over, and over again. I'm pretty much out of ideas. I'd really appreciate some help!

Below are some of the most recent error logs taken from Event Viewer.

Faulting application svchost.exe, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x47918b89, faulting module unknown, version, time stamp 0x00000000, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0001624b, process id 0x13dc, application start time 0x01cbc4f13ea95f00

Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected

Thank you for any help!
