    i tried using hotfix from microsoft yet the generic host still pops.

    i also encounter a generic downloader.k virus,it detects by mcafee and cleans it,bt sometimes it appears again almost everyday or when i use my pc.

    i dont wana try the other method,is there still another way to fix? or should i just reformat my pc?

    thanks!

    Wink Re:Generic Host Process for Win32

    Hi!
    In my job they have the same issue on most of the computer, and it was cause a virus and spywares. To removed that virus, we update all the computer with the last Windows Updates. Run Spybot with the last update, and run Ewido , run a full scan from your antivirus ( please update first ) after that everything is working fine.

    Remember when you run the windows updates and reboot the PC you have to go back until there is not more updates.
    If you have questions, send me an email at cuchi22pr@yahoo.com

    good luck!

    I'm using win XP SP2. Some people are telling me it is related to spywares (probably not)
    while others think it is because of SP2 updates. Is it true?

    Could somebody please help me and how i can get rid of it

    Re. Win 32 error

    I had the same problem, when I would close the Win 32 I would get an Data Execution prevention error message,closing it would take me back to the win 32 tab. After trying all the fixes and advice in this and other forums I tried to ignore them for awhile by dragging them off to the side of the screen. Finally one day out of frustration I started closing them in rapid succession as they would reappear. To my amazement and total joy they disappeared and have not returned. I have no explanation why this worked, but it might work for you also.

    Generic error

    Hello, I have run all the scanners and done as Dr Tweak recommended, however I am still having the same issue. It makes my audio control give me this error "There are no active audio devices...." Like there is no audio card installed. This only happens after I receive the error Generic host process for win32 services encountered a problem, we are sorry for the inconvienience.

    Here is my logfile:

    This is because you posted in a thread that is years old. Please start a new thread with your problem.

    Easy solution for win32 services has encountered a problem

    It is a malware program named NUCRP-4 that has somehow slipped past and is invisible to your antivirus/spyware. It drove me crazy shutting off my audio and not allowing me access to windows firewall and slowing down my computer and not allowing me desktop access.

    I fixed it by:
    a) turning off my Pc-cilliananti virus/spyware

    b) procceding to http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ which is Trend micros FREE on line web based most up to date antivirus/malware/grayware/spyware/update scanner.

    c) let it scan and remove the malware/grayware and cookies.

    d) fe booted and re-scanned my computer with my anti virus software which could now detect the remnants of the malware and quarintined them.

    e) turned off my anti virus software and did a windows update.

    Problem fixed and everything works fine.

    Please download Ad-Aware SE 1.06 and SpyBot Search & Destroy 1.4 then set them up EXACTLY as I have written HERE. This will offer much deeper scanning than the default settings that will find more spyware/malware.

    Install and run CWShredder 2.15.

    Then do a FREE online virus scan from Kaspersky Webscan.

    Also make sure you have ALL of the latest Windows Updates (only install SP2 for XP once you are spyware FREE).

    I also HIGHLY recommend you download, update and scan with Spy Sweeper 4.0, there is a FREE 14-day trial and it is an EXCELLENT product.

    It it also a good idea to run the Winsock Fix to repair your TCP/IP stack. (you will have to redo any tweaks for your connection if this is used)

    If after doing ALL of the above and you are still having problems please scan with HijackThis 1.99.1 as shown HERE and post a log here in this forum for us to look at.

    Once you are clean download SpywareBlaster 3.4 and set it up as shown HERE to help stay spyware free.

    Hi, I get this Generic Host Process for Win32 Services message. Nothing really happens after clicking send or not send, I can keep using the IE, Messenger and any other internet programs but I can't download the Windows Updates. This is the greatest problem I found so far but I don't want it to continue.
    I've ran Ad-aware Se, Spybot s&d and cwshredder. And I downloaded and ran Kaspersky, but anything of this helped.
    The error says:
    szAppName : svchost.exe szAppVer : 5.1.2600.2180
    szModName : wuaueng.dll
    szModVer : 7.0.6000.381 offset : 000c7ab2
    And the files that contains that error report are :
    C:\DOCUME~1\DANY\CONFIG~1\Temp\WER38eb.dir00\svchost.exe.mdmp
    C:\DOCUME~1\DANY\CONFIG~1\Temp\WER38eb.dir00\appcompat.txt

    I've also used the hijackthis program, and this is what I got:

    Question generic Host Process for Win32 Services error message

    Well I have tried it all. Here is the logfile. Wouldn't it be nice if Mr. Gates would provide us users a list of the stuff that should be running at Windows idle (no apps running) as visible in Task Manager. Any help to remove the culprit would be immensly appreciated.

    hi every one

    hi , i'm new to this community , but i just wanted to say that after some hard research i found out what was wrong at least with my system , it turned out to be a viurs called heap41a which hides itself in the root of C:\ if you want to get rid of that virus just do a search on google about heap41a or check out this webpage that offers a solution to the problem http://tec-updates.blogspot.com/2007...worm-worm.html by the way after installing the removal tool the problem disappeared in some cases and on some other computers problem presists , the best solution is to throw XP out the window and replace it with Vista like i did.
    best of luck !!

    Hi Guys,I dont know why people blindly folllow what poeple say be more sure what you are doing,how come you guys just follow what mnosteele52 has said to do downloading
    Ad-Aware SE 1.06 and SpyBot Search & Destroy 1.4 then set them up EXACTLY as I have written HERE. This will offer much deeper scanning than the default settings that will find more spyware/malware.Install and run CWShredder 2.15.
    Then do a FREE online virus scan from Kaspersky Webscan.

    Dont you think he is just making you use this products ,as the problem lies in the Operating System.............

    Do Just follow this technique u can get rid of it i am sure it must

    Update from February-March 2007: First, try to follow the instructions at Microsoft KB 931852 related to the Catroot2 folder. If it doesn't fix your problem, try the following recipes, too.

    TRY THIS ONE, IT MAY SOLVE YOURS!

    1. Turn on your Windows Firewall, and turn off Automatic Updates. Even though you have turned this thing off, you still have to follow the next steps.

    2. Right-click My Computer and click Services. If you want the long way around, go to Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, then double click Services.

    3. Double-click Automatic Updates.

    4. If it is running, click Stop.

    5. On the Startup Type drop-down menu, select Disabled.

    6. Click Apply, then click OK.

    Reboot your computer and observe if the error will show up again. (Chances are, it will not do so, anymore!)

    OPTIONAL: Download a copy of the SafeXP program and install it to your computer. (You can find this program on the Internet.) Once installed, open it from Control Panel, apply its recommended settings and reboot your computer.

    I hope that this solution I discovered will make everyone's Windows XP SP2 free from the damn "Generic Host Process for Win32" error!

    If my above fix / solution works for you, let us know as soon as possible.

    Generic Host process for Win32 Services...

    Sir,

    I am a getting the same error & after that, my broadband connection got inactive. I have to restart my system to get it corrected. Moreover, when I got this message, my sound settings also gets some problem, they do not work at all.
    My dealer has given me the copied version of Windows XP SP2. He has told me that the original version comes with a price tag of around Rs.5000. I am not ready to pay so much amount. I have found here in the blog that some members have got it corrected by downloading the Windows Update from Microsoft. As I dont have the guinine version, isnt it not possible that Microsoft may not update the details to me. I have bought a new Laptop & my dealer says that it comes with Vista platform, but Vista is not so good, as many older version of programs dont run properly in Vista.

    Please help me how to get it corrected. I am a beginner & dont know much about computers & installations. Please guide me in shortest & simplest way in which I can cure the problem.

    Please friends, help me as soon as you can. I am in a deep trouble. Moreover, I think my dealer is fooling me, by saying such things. Please correct me if I am wrong. I would be really thankful to you.

    thanks in advance,
    reply soon,

    Siddharth
