I have seen a  number of posts diagnosing this issue, however, they seem specific for each user so I thought I should ask for help specifically for me.
 
I get this message periodically (once every day or two), but there does not seems to be any problems associated with it.  I do have a couple issues that may or may not be part of it.  One is that I periodically lose network connection from my Ethernet connection. The computer icons in the task bar seem to be still showing communication but the Networking and Sharing page shows limited connection to the router and no connection to the internet.   My router is still working however since I can use WiFi on another device.  I end up having to restart the computer to get the connection back.  Another issue I have is this message in the Event Viewer:  "The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer MYNETN600 that believes that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_{A07981E3-3A87-43F5-970A-BE5DBA13. The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced."  The latter issue is a real pain, the previous one - not so much.
 
I am running Vista Home Premium  32 bit with Service Pack 2 installed.
 
Thanks for your help

Your Internet problem is most likely related to the host process stopping. The master browser event is normal.

If you check Event Viewer, do you see any events (in system or application) that say something like "the xyz service has terminated unexpectedly"?


Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Thanks for your response.

 

 

Host Process just quit and these are the details in event viewer for applications (however note this is just labeled as an "information" level, not "error"):

Prior to that, this appears in the system log:

And in the Details:

Does that help?

 

Thanks,

 

Doug

Yes, that helps.

 

What model is your (Dell?) computer?

Is your computer configured to sleep or hibernate?

Do you have a network printer installed on this computer?


Have you tried turning it off and on again?

It is an Insipron 531s

It is configured to sleep

 

 

Do you have a network printer installed on this computer?

 

My printer is a Cannon Pixma that can be connected by WiFi, but I have it plugged into the USB port on the Dell.

 

 

Thanks for your reply.

Was your Cannon printer ever installed and configured on this computer to use the wireless?

 

Set your computer to the 'High Performance' power profile, turn off sleep (Managing Power Settings in Windows Vista, How can I Prevent My Computer from Sleeping) and update your network driver from here: NVIDIA Network driver for Vista32 - Dell.com

 

Reboot after the driver update and let me know if this improves anything.

Originally (about a year ago), I tried to connect it by WiFi, but had problems I don't remember.  SInce then, I have had it connected directly.  When I look at the router, I do not see any printer, although my pay grade does not allow much understanding there!

 

Set your computer to the 'High Performance' power profile, turn off sleep (Managing Power Settings in Windows Vista, How can I Prevent My Computer from Sleeping) and update your network driver from here: NVIDIA Network driver for Vista32 - Dell.com

 

Done

 

Reboot after the driver update and let me know if this improves anything.

 

Done

 

 

Since I originally posted my problem, the limited connectivity issue has gotten worse.  After rebooting, I have internet for a while but then the limited connectivity issue occurs.  Once I could send emails but not receive them nor connect to the internet.  Also, the last 3 reboots have produced the Blue Screen of Death where it says to the effect the computer is being protected from damage due to a process or thread that is crucial to system operation that unexpectedly exited or terminated.  The following was listed:

 

STOP: (0x000000F4)  Details(?): (0x00000003, 0x88473020, 0x8B47316C, 0x85077CA0)

 

This occurred after (the first?) reboot in which the message saying there was a program running that must be stopped before reboot.  That program was Windows Task Scheduler.  That was the first time I saw that.

 

I have run CCleaner, SpyWareBlaster and Malwarebytes.

 

All is well since I did what you suggested (except for the last Blue screen).   So in the next minutes, I'll reboot and try again.

 

Thanks for your help.

Well, internet has been working although I haven't tested for any length of time however, I'm still getting the Blue Screen at shut down prior to reboot.  This time it shows:

 

STOP: 0x00000003  (0x8C10E420,0x8C10E56C, 0x8506BCA0)

 

Any thoughts?

I think we should get someone involved to look at those bluescreens.

It's been over 24 hours and no Host Process errors AND the last reboot was successful!

 

Thanks for all your help.  Do you recommend I keep the computer from sleeping or should I try to do it later to see if it comes back?

 

Thanks

Generally I don't recommend using sleep mode, it can cause unpredictable behavior.

It's up to you though, try putting the computer to sleep and waking it up. If things go well go ahead and re-enable it :)

 

No more blue screen messages?
