I have just downloaded and installed the latest display drivers for my ATI graphics card (which requires a re-start).
Every time I re-start I am getting the message "GENERIC HOST FOR WIN32 SERVICES HAS ENCOUNTERED A PROBLEM AND NEEDS TO CLOSE"
I dont have a clue as to what this means but it seems important because my computer doesnt respond in the normal manner when it happens. Can anyone shed some light on this e.g - what causes this to happen and why?

P.S my drivers for all components are up to date including BIOS and chipset drivers.

Please help.

Was the ATI driver from a reputable source?
