services.exe' terminated unexpectedly

  [DELETED] 09:59 17 Apr 2006

When I connect to the internet ZoneAlarm asks do you want to allow services & controller app to access the internet. If I tick no I can connect without any problems. If I tick yes it says services and controller app has encountered a problem.

c:\windows\system32\services.exe' terminated unexpectedly with status code 1073741819. The message says that the computer will shut down in 60 seconds, but it just freezes. The computer will not restart or shutdown so I have to press reset. I am running XP Home SP2.

I have searched MS and can’t find a fix for this. The only mentions on Google relate to viruses and worms, but I have scanned my computer with several anti-virus and spyware programs and it is clean. Has anyone come across this problem and know of a fix?

This has only happened since last Friday when I did get an infected file download but AVG Free dealt with that. I can’t do a system restore because one of the fixes on Google required that System Restore was turned off, and that caused previous restore points to disappear.
