I have had this problem for about a week or so, it seems UserFaultCheck always pops up every time i start my computer same with DEP (Data Execution Preventation) which prevents Generic Host Process for Win32 Services.

After a short amount of time (5 mins or so) the display of my systems goes from XP to Classic View and then i guess UserFaultCheck fixed that and got it back to XP view but after this happens my operating systems can't get acess to hardware and such. For example if I go to Accerssories -> Volume Control a message will pop up saying 'There are no active mixers available. To install mixer devices, go to Control Panel... etc'

I have done a system restore before which managed to fix the problem in sort of a 'glitchy' way. But after 2 days or so the problem just comes back. But i did have a look in the log files and saw that this program called "Software Distribution Service 3.0' was installed on my computer. I reaserched it and it seems harmless because i got it from the XP update, the problem is i think this is why my computer has been acting strange recently.

EDIT: whenever i start or restart my computer everything seems to be working.... for 5 minutes

can anyone please help out with this problem?
