Host Process for Windows Services Stopped Working
Hi All,

Twice tonight I've had an error message pop up complaining that a "Host Process for windows services stopped working and was closed. A problem caused the application to stop working correctly. Windows will notify when a solution is available."

The first time I thought nothing of it, but the second time has left my task bar in an old format, as if Vista Aero has broken or something.

In the Problem Reports and SOlutions I believe it to be what is referred to as 'IP Helper', with the following details:

Problem signature
Problem Event Name: BEX
Application Name: svchost.exe_iphlpsvc
Application Version: 6.0.6001.18000
Application Timestamp: 47918b89
Fault Module Name: ntdll.dll
Fault Module Version: 6.0.6002.18327
Fault Module Timestamp: 4cb73436
Exception Offset: 00084bae
Exception Code: c000000d
Exception Data: 00000000
OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.3
Locale ID: 2057
Additional Information 1: 40d4
Additional Information 2: 4062ad41ec8067256aa4c5e2b56d3c79
Additional Information 3: 40d4
Additional Information 4: 4062ad41ec8067256aa4c5e2b56d3c79

Extra information about the problem
Bucket ID: 1705280733

Does anyone know what's causing this?

Cheers, Xar

Press the Windows key + R to open a Run box.

Type services.msc

Press Enter.

Locate the IP Helper service.

It should be Started and Automatic.

When left with an old format task bar, what do you do to get the new one back?

Since posting that the taskbar has partially reformed itself, in structure at least, to the Vista standard, complete with windows buttom, quick launch etc, but with an entirely white background and transparent boxes for applications. Afraid I don't know how to change settings like colour in the task bar...

Press the Windows key + R to open a Run box.

Type (or paste) the following command and press Enter:

cmd /k tasklist /m /fi "IMAGENAME eq svchost.exe" >C:\svchost.exe.txt

It will generate a text file on the C drive called svchost.exe.

Copy the content of that Notepad text file and paste it into your next reply.

Unfortunately I tried a restart and have lost the connection to my router. Seems likely to be related to ip helper going down. It is however still started and automaticI'm now on my phone and can't get you the notepad file....

A system restore has fixed that lastest issue, and hopefully the rest. I'll give it a few days and set this thread as solved if I don't see the error any more.

Thanks again

Step 1 : Go to Task Manager -> Services -> Show All Services

Step 2 : Search for Windows Presentation Foundation Font Cache 3.0.0.0

Step 3 : Right Click on it -> Properties

Step 4 : In General Tab, Change Startup Type as "DISABLED"

Step 5 : Apply Changes.
