I'm having a reccuring problem with Windows, happening usually within 10 minutes of starting-up Windows, or within a few minutes of running a game or Media player - anything using sound I believe.
This is the error I receive:
Generic Host Process from Win32 Services
EventType : BEX P1 : svchost.exe P2 : 5.1.2600.2180 P3 : 41107ed6
P4 : netapi32.dll P5 : 5.1.2600.2180 P6 : 411096ac P7 : 0000a3c0
P8 : c0000409 P9 : 00000000
I have tried anti-virus tools in Safe-Mode, like HijackThis, CWShredder, Spybot, Avast Ant-Virus and Ad-Aware with its VX-2 Cleaner. Nothing, no malicious files or apps, and I still get the same error.
During i.e. watching a DVD, the error message will come, but the DVD continue to play fine. But, after starting anything else, the sound will not work in a game or a media file, but the generic Windows sounds do continue. When I try running another program, I get the message 'No sound device detected'.
There are no updates for my soundcard, and recently I have made no changes to it.
AMD Athlon x2 4400+
GeForce 7800 video
Drivers are all up to date.
Any advice or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
