I've been developing and running applications on Windows 2000 Pro without any problem whatsoever, for the past two years now. However, a couple of days ago something strange happened. When I dial into the Internet now, the following dialog box pops up from time to time: 'svchost.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program'. After pressing 'OK', everything looks fine again (no freezing, crash etc) - I can still navigate to sites, but pressing links in sites no longer works, and worse, I discovered I can't launch local applications like Frontpage, Photodraw, Visual Basic etc etc. The only way to correct this is to restart Windows/PC. I can't think of anything in particular I may have done to cause this problem. Any ideas? Could it be a virus? (am not running VirusScan)
Thanks for your help.
