I came in this morning (and not for the first time) and found a dialog box on my screen saying "svchost.exe has caused an exception. Would you like to debug this?"
Fortunately, it gives the PID. Using tasklist /svc I see this instance of svchost is running the following:
svchost.exe 1684 AudioSrv, Browser, CryptSvc, Dhcp, dmserver, ERSvc, EventSystem, helpsvc, HidServ, LanmanServer, lanmanworkstation, Netman, Nla, RasMan, Schedule, seclogon, SENS, SharedAccess, ShellHWDetection, srservice, TapiSrv, Themes, TrkWks, w32time, winmgmt, wscsvc, wuauserv
After this happens the most noticeable thing I am missing is audio. My system doesn't think it has audio hardware anymore.
Any ideas on what could be causing svchost to crash or how to go about narrowing it down?
