    Windows update issue - Generic Host Process for Win32

    Hi, I am getting an error message that pops up each time I logon to my computer - "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

    I am also getting svchost.exe application error pop up.

    I have installed the two patches from Microsoft - WSUS version 3 and Hotfix 927891. I have then visited Microsoft Update page and Window Update page - each time it says "Checking for the latest updates for your computer..." it just seems to keep searching for hours without any results.

    Does anyone have any idea why it would be doing this or how to solve it? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated

    Not that I know what I'm talking about... but have you done a virus and Trojan check recently?
    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.
