I was wondering if anyone could help me?  I have been having a lot of issues with my computer and using the internet. I keep getting messages such as ‘windows explorer has stopped working ‘and ‘Host process for windows services stopped working’. I haven’t been able to stream videos (with the exception of youtube),  download certain programs and browsing sites is slow.  I remember my computer being fine until a window update but I don’t know if that’s a coincidence or not.  I have tired uninstalling windows explorer and system restore to no avail.

I would really appreciate any help or advice.

Here is a report for one of the error messages I received.


  A problem caused this program to stop interacting with Windows.

Do things get better if you boot into Safe Mode with Networking?
