You **might** be infected with spyware that a regular cleaner cannot pickup.

I reccomend you find a utility called "HiJack This!" and use it under the professional care of someone who is skilled to read out your scan from the utility and tell you what to repair. Unfortunately , I am not one of those qualified to read the logs and give advice.

The diagnostic policy service is not running hard to enter internet


I found a way to fix this issue after failing with every other attempt. Permissions were incorrect for registry entry: HKLM\System\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\WDI\Config In the advanced permission view I added Full control for: Local Service, NT Service\DPS, and NT Service\MpsSvc Hope this helps someone somewhere. I found it with process monitor and filtering for svchost.exe while launching the DPS service.

See microsoft's web page where I got this solution. Windows 7 64 bits Diagnostic Policy Service does not start Error 5 Access...

Can'tdouble click on my C drive to open


It sounds like some of your system files are no longer in tact. First off I would find out what caused this problem.
To start with you need to run a full ant-virus scan on your computer with whichever anti-virus software you use. If your software finds issues that you cannot fix, then you need to take in your computer to a professional ASAP to have the infection removed (if you are very comfortable with this procedure you can do this your self).
Once you have ensured that all viral infections are removed (keep in mind there is a possibility that you never had an infection), move on to repairing the issue.
I will assume you have windows XP as your laptop ships with, if not please respond and I'll give you different directions.
Run a check disk on your computer. Open "My Computer" then right-click on your C drive and click on "Properties". This will open up a new window, click on the "Tools" tab and then click the "Check Now" button under the Error-checking section. This opens a new window labeled "Check Disk Local Disk" check both of the boxes in this window instructing the program to automatically fix system errors and to scan for and recover bad sectors, then click the "Start" button. This will likely bring up a new prompt saying that this operation can't be performed while the drive is mounted, and asks if it can run at the boot of your computer. Pres the "Yes" button, and then restart your computer.
Check Disk will run automatically as your computer boots, and will repair all of the problems with your system files.
You will no longer receive the 'media.exe' error.

I am getting error message for win32 generic host data executor prevention


Here is my resolution to the error
SVCHOST.EXE GENERIC HOST PROCESS OR
DEP ERROR

IT DOES NOT INCLUDE
DISABLING WIA
OR
DISABLING DEP (which is a good security feature)


I have tried it on upto 3-4 computers with success and complete software functionality
*******************************************
Turn the All in One Off
Uninstall the whole of the HP software on the computer
Run a level 4 uninstall
Start --> Run -->X:\Util\CCC\Uninstall L1.bat
Start --> Run -->X:\Util\CCC\Uninstall L2.bat
Start --> Run -->X:\Util\CCC\Uninstall L3.bat
Start --> Run -->X:\Util\CCC\Uninstall L4.bat

Restart the computer
*******************************************
Check the computer on the restart
Check if you still get an SVCHOST.EXE GENERIC HOST PROCESS OR
DEP ERROR on restart


Start --> Run
Type in Msconfig
Click OK
Click Launch System Restore
Run System Restore
Create a Restore Point named Hp

Click Start --> Run
Type in Regedit
Click OK
Open Registry Editor
Scroll to the following Registry Key

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentV
ersion\Explorer\
RemoteComputer\NameSpace\2227A280-3AEA-1069-A2DE-08002B30309D

Right click on this Key Click Export
On the Export Registry Window which comes up
Type Hpprinter as the filename and save it on the desktop

Get back to the same Registry Key
Right Click the Key and Click Delete to remove the key


Restart the computer
THERE SHOULD BE NO DEP ERRORS THIS TIME

(IF you have any issues after deleting the above key <possibility is remote> restore the computer back to the Hp restore point)

*******************************************

Reinstall the Hp printer Wirelessly or on a wired network now the usual way


Once the software installation finishes
Verify functionality

*******************************************
NOW
Right-Click My Computer, then click Properties.

On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.

On the Data Execution Prevention tab

Click Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select to select the OptOut policy, and then click Add to add the following programs

Create an exception in the DEP for the following programs by browsing to the correct location. The following list outlines the locations:


Hpcmpmgr.exe (x:\Program Files\HP\Hpcoretech\hpcmpmgr.exe)

HPwuSchd2.exe (x:\Program Files\HP\HP Software Update\hpwuSchd2.exe)

HP Digital Imaging Monitor (hpqtra08.exe) (x:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\bin\hpqtra08.exe)

HP Image Zone Fast Start (hpqthb08.exe) (x:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\bin\hpqthb08.exe)

Generic Host Process for Win32(svchost.exe)
(c:\windows\system32\svchost.exe)

Add all these files one by one by browsing to the locations

Click Apply and OK
Let the computer restart if prompted
******************************************

Its also at times needed to disable
from the Startup of the computer in Msconfig

Hpcmpmgr.exe
HPwuSchd2.exe
HP Digital Imaging Monitor (hpqtra08.exe)
HP Image Zone Fast Start (hpqthb08.exe)

The reason is the above mentioned exceptions to the Data Execution Prevention are loaded after the Startup loads and the DEP may try to shut them down at the startup itself and generate the errors
Unchecking the above files does not mean losing any functionality on the All in One all the features should work properly

The pc keeps switching itself off


Computer Switching off can be many problem.

Method 1 : Overheating of the system 

System automatically shutdown or restart by itself when it's overheated due to Dust or dirt contamination in order to prevent hardware burn out.

Open your Notebook which is little tough to explain as it is different for all models.
and get it clean with an Air Blower mainly near the Processor area,check the CPU cooling fan is working or not.Get it clean too.

Check now if the system is working fine.

Method 2 : Malware, Trojan, Virus infection
Malware, Trojan, Virus infection can caused a system to repeatedly restart or shutdown as they infect svchost.exe or explorer.exe.

Scanning the system with a good antivirus like Norton,Kaspersky internet security 2010 or A-squared Anti-Malware or Avast Antivirus with their lastest updates install can solve the problem.

I perfer you check out the method 1 first.

What is an ArcCon ac application error0xc00000006?


What you describe falls under the general category of svchost.exe issues. Svchost.exe is used by your computer to access the registry and check the services to load during system startup.

arccon.ac is an ArcSoft Connect Notifier. There are two possibilities why its happening:
  1. Microsoft releases regular security updates that are installed automatically on your computer by the Automatic Updates feature, which is enabled by default on your computer. The Svchost.exe Application error usually appears due to a problem with a recent update.
Closing the error message might freeze your computer. To fix this error, perform the following tasks.
  1. Open Control Panel, select Performance and Maintenance, and then select Services.
  2. In the System Properties dialog box, open the Automatic Updates tab.
  3. Next, select the Turn Off Automatic Updates option.
  4. Select Apply and then OK to accept your changes and exit the System Properties dialog box.
  5. Restart your PC.
  6. Ensure that you are connected to the Internet and then select the Windows Update command from Start > All Programs to manually update Windows.
  7. After the update is complete, enable the automatic updates again from System Properties > Automatic Updates.
This should rectify your application error. However, if the error keeps reappearing, then you might turn off automatic updates permanently and manually perform Windows updates at regular intervals.

Errors Caused By Virus Infection
Let's hope that this isn't the case. Lengthy procedure but if you are still having trouble, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

You got a virus. You will need to get rid of it, then install an anti-virus and anti-spyware solution.
I recommend Comodo Internet Security - it's free for home use and very good.

Do a system restore if using XP, or a recovery at boot up if using Vista.
