Host Process for Windows Services Stopped

  Sparkly 14:53 29 Mar 2009

Hi all just set up my new PC from Dell two days ago all works well but i keep getting a box pop up telling me "Host Process for Windows Services Stopped working & was closed" A problem caused the application to stop working correctly,windows will notify you if a solution is available.
When i click the OK another box appears down on the notification area saying DEP has closed Host Process for Windows. This has only been poping up after i installed my HP AIO printer software and Office 2007 software, as i am new to the Vista OS could anyone shed some light on this or give some suggestion what to do?
Dell XPS 430
Vista Home Premium 32bit Thanks in advance

It's because of the printer software

At a guess, I would say that the printer software is not compatable with Vista.
Tis link is to the HP Vista printer drivers.
Good Luck
