Host process for windows services

  GM 19:53 13 Nov 2007

Can anyone help with this message, "Host process for windows services stopped working and was closed". This comes up when my Dell PC is running intermittantly with no explanation. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium but I cannot find out a reason on the Dell support etc.
