I am running Windows server 2003 R3 SP2 and my computer browswer service keeps stopping.I look in the event log and see that I have an application error svchost.exe what would cause this?

I am running Windows server 2003 R3 SP2. This moring my users where not able to map network drives. I looked at the services and noticed that my Computer Browser service was stopped. I started it again and all was well. Then about 1 hour later the samething happened. I started the service and it worked. I also checked the event viewer and saw that I had an Application error: Faulting application svchost.exe, version 5.2.3790.3959, faulting module shell32.dll, version, fault address 0x0014e84e. When I looked into this further I found something about turning on Automatic updates to stop the svchost.exe error from happening. I have done that and all seeemed well but it has happened again. I have changed the service to autostart on failure but that does not fix the issue. Any help would be GREAT! Also when this first happens and you log on to the server I get the following as well: Generic Host Process for Win32 Services encountred a probablem and needed to close. Please help. Thanks
