I have been getting a error on my Win2k machine that reads:
"svchost.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created"
After the error message many windows functions are disabled, eg cut/copy/paste etc, ability to use Outlook or any MS office applications properly and the machine needs to be restarted which is a major pain when it happens more than once a day. I have tried reformating the HDD and reinstalling windows but the errors continue and I'm not sure what to do next.
The PC is part of a small LAN and the other 5 machines share the internet connection through this machine.
There seems to be no pattern as to when the error occurs, sometimes it happens once a week and sometimes 10 times a day. I'm incredibly frustrated and hope that someone has some info or advice? I can give any more info about the PC if needs be, thanks
