Generic Host Process For Win32 Services Error / Dcom Networking Error -- Help!

Q: Generic Host Process For Win32 Services Error / Dcom Networking Error -- Help!

I posted this earlier but reposted this and erased the old thread because I have more information now and have narrowed down the problem (I hope).This problem just happened yesterday after I had to manually shut down (used power button) my computer after it froze. Now when I try to load up IE, it "halfway" opens up (you can see parts of the interface) and just freezes. I thought maybe it was an IE problem, but if I try to load up Firefox (even without loading up IE first), nothing happens -- it won't load. I load up the Task Manager and firefox.exe is there as a process even though it hasn't loaded. The only way I did figure out to surf the net is to load up "My Computer" and enter a web address from there manually. But even when I do that, if I click on any link that opens up a new window, IE will try loading that new window up which freezes. Right after this happened, I get a "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services Error" (still do every now and then. I also d/l'd the "patch" for this from Microsoft's website to no avail) which says something about svchost.exe and some other exe's. I think it has something to do with networking because I loaded up "Event Viewer" from the Control Panel and I managed to track down the error I get *each* time my computer starts up These errors I get are *all* dated right after I had to manually shutdown the computer and when the problems began. Here it is:Source: DCOMEvent ID: 10005DCOM got error "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " attempting to start the service StiSvc with arguments "" in order to run the server:{A1F4E726-8CF1-11D1-BF92-0060081ED811}Below is my HiJackThis log if this helps at all.

As soon as I start my computer up, I get a pop-up that says
Data Execution-Microsoft Windows.

To hope protect your computer, Windows has closed this program.

Name: Generic Host Process for Win32 Services
Publisher: Microsoft Corporation

and then there is a Close Message button...

If you hit the button it brings up the send error report box and it doesn't matter if you send the report or not the original box comes up again and will continuously do this.

Next issue.

About every 30 -45 minutes I get a shutdown box that says

DCOM Server Process Launcher Service must shut down and I get a 1 minute countdown.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello all, hope someone can assist me here or at least give me a line of thought.

I recently had this problem:
After my Windows XP boots and I log in to windows I get the message:

Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem.. (blah blah)
I went thru all the forums here, but did not find something that apply to me.

After I click the "Dont send error report" button, I can work fine and cant seem to find what's wrong, or what service failed.
Everything works just fine.

But still, why the message? what service? how do I find more details.

Have XP SP2 (updated), CA antivirus, SpyBot S&D, and PestPatrol (lousy program).

Anyone?

Thanks.

Hi guys, i'm a newbie on here and would greatly appreciate any/all the help i can get regarding the following error message:
"Generic Host Process for Win32 Services"

- I only receive this error within my browser after a couple of minutes or less on the internet. It comes up randomly and not at specific sites and then just "freezes" my browsing capabilities. I thus need to reboot the whole damn system again....as you can imagine, very, very annoying.

Now i've started with the obvious by searching for more info re: this with no luck at all. Tried everytrhing from reinstalling XP, did the updates, ran security software (AVG 8.5 - is what i currently got), etc., etc... nothing worked.

Did a screenshot of the error message details, can email it to you if need be but this is pretty much the details of the error:

"Error Signature

EventType: BEX P1: svchost.exe P2: 5.1.2600.2180 P3: 41107ed6
P4: netapi32.dll P5: 5.1.2600.2180 P6: 411096ac P7: 0000a3c0
P8: c0000409 P9: 00000000"

Don't know if this is much help, but seriously, its bugging the living S** out of me and i'm sure there must be someone out there experiencing something similar.

Thanx
 

A:XP error - Generic Host Process Win32 Services

Read this. Your problem is related to the netapi32.dll and svchost.exe.

I was wondering if anyone could help, I keep getting a Generic Host Process for Win32 Services Error (see pictures) Once that happens the start manu switches quickly back to the old style then back to XP style quickly (I presume as the proccess is being shut down) then the internet stops working. (connection goes idle) The timing of the error changes.. sometimes it happens 2 mins after booting up.. sometimes 30.. sometimes it doesnt happen for the whole day
(it has been happening on and off for about a week now)

I am running XP Home with SP1 (cant stay online long enough to download SP2!!!)

A:Generic Host Process for Win32 Services Error

Remove the following processes from your system. (make sure you don't get rid of the ones that refer to svChost (with the "C").) These are related to the MyDoom virus. After you remove these, update your AV programs and runn a FULL scan on your system. Then do a search for the file svhost.exe and remove it if it is still on your HDD. Then reboot, and you should be OK.

I first noticed problems with IE 6x. Links in Google would take you to advertising pages. Firefox 3x would constantly crash. Windows update would not update (I think, I could go to the website and it said I had everything, but after fixing below, I got notice for about a half dozen updates) and I would get an error message:

Generic Host Process for Win32 Services.
Generic Host Process for Win 32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Error signature:

Following this error, the most noticeable symptom is that the sound in flash media (youtube, etc. and local flash files) would stop working though the videos play fine. Also, if you click the volume icon in notification area of the task bar, nothing will happen. If you go to Sounds and Audio Devices in the Control Panel, it indicates there is no audio device. That being said, windows system sounds and non-flash media (through Media Player or VLC) plays with normal audio. Rebooting or reinstalling the Dell drivers will fix audio problem until the Win32 error message occurs again. Re-installing flash did no help.

Hi,

I have win xp sp2.

A few days back my pc hanged. when i restarted i got the "Generic host process for win32 services error" error. also my nod32 showed svchost error.

I have since then scanned my system with nod32 and found no infection. I have carried out the regedit option too...the closing of ports 445 and 135. Also done winsock reset option. Nothing seems to have worked so far

Since that day i haven't got the "generic host process.." error window but my internet connection icon and local connection icon still seem to hang after a few hours (no specific time)resulting in no internet and when i try to shut down my pc it hangs at "saving your settings" stage and i am forced to manually cut the poweroff. eta1 - after forced manual shutdown when i start the pc everything seems to go back to normal i am able to access internet until the hang happens again.

I would really appreciate any help i can get, please help!

Thanks.

Looking forward

A:Generic host process for win32 services error

You can try running system Restore and going back to a time before the issue occurred.

You could also boot into Safe Mode and run some cleanup utilities (ie: Adaware, Spybot Search & Destroy, & MalwareBytes). Then reboot and run ccleaner.

Otherwise, I would likely boot from the XP CD and perform a Repair (just to make sure no core XP files are damaged) and then I'd reinstall SP2 (and in my case SP3). And install all of the latest drivers for all of the hardware.

Lastly, copy off the important files and reinstall XP.

I received some malware in November on my personal laptop while bringing work home. I was able to remove the malware, however my laptop hasn't been the same since. I keep getting a "Generic Host Process Win32 Services? error thing that pops up ? I have found online it can be anything from a Microsoft soft wear issue and all I need to do is upload the security update from Microsoft. Other places says it could be a virus or a worm?!?! Any ideas what this is?

Another thing that pops up sometimes is a RUNDLL error with the address c:\windows\isunetix.dll ? this wants to send an error report. Can?t find what this is.

Lastly, every once in a while when we are on google chrome, it freezes, a window pops up and there is this little figure in the upper left hand corner that looks like sponge bob with x?s on it?s eyes saying there is something wrong with the page. You can x out of it; however, you can't close the browser window or navigate anywhere. Then you basically have to reboot to get control. I tried to get my husband to save a copy of the screen, but he got too pissed last night and just rebooted.

Sometimes, the lower navigation bar will turn white when this is all happening and we have to reboot.

A:Generic Host Process Win32 Services error

It's not unusual to receive such an error(s) when "booting up" after using anti-virus and other security scanning tools to remove a malware infection.RunDLL32.exe is a legitimate Windows file that executes/loads .dll (Dynamic Link Library) modules which too can be legitimate or sometimes malware related. A RunDLL "Error loading..." or "specific module could not be found" message usually occurs when the .dll file(s) that was set to run at startup in the registry has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file(s) but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry still remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads. To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there.
Vista/Windows 7 users refer to these instructions.Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the fil... Read more

Hi!

Each time I start the computer, I get an error message that says
“Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered an error and needs to close"
Even so, everything looks fine - except the sound from my speakers completely stop.
I can't hear anything from the PC's speakers.
For example, I can see a movie DVD from my installed DVD ROM, but can't hear anything.

I have googled for this problem and amazed by the number of people affected.
But looks like each problem is different.
Nevertheless, I have tried some solutions offered by those affected.

* Disable automatic updates from Microsoft,
* Use 'FirewallLeakTester' to close ports 135, 137 and 445.
* Download and run Microsofts' recommended Hot fixes, Patches etc .

I get some relief but at the next boot, the error message reappears.
Another way I immediately fix the problem, is to go to Start, Run and type services.msc
and from there look for Windows Audio.
If it doesn't stay 'Started' and 'Automatic', I right click on Windows' Audio and then select
Start and the sound system thereafter works without any problem.
That is, until the PC's next reboot.

My PC is running Windows XP Pro with Microsoft's Service Pack 3.
The system, I believe, is well protected with Nod32 AntiVirus, Malwarebytes AntiMalware,

A:Generic host process for win32 services Error

Hello,

My first step would be to get rid off the yellow marks in your device manager.
I would also not use the beta stuff.
Then i would get a firewall and an antivirus ASAP.
then i can ask my question... Are you on a network ?

Hi,

Just yesterday, I started receiving this error message after my computer had been on for a while. I'm not sure what this means, but after the error, I find that my sound system no longer works. I was wondering what steps I should take to stop this error from happening. I noticed that another person who had a similar problem on this forum was infected with a rootkit, a backdoor trojan that could steal information and download or execute files. I would like to know if the same thing is happening to me.

Also, right before I received this error, I was infected with the fake Microsoft Security Essentials and Antimalware Doctor viruses. I followed the guides on this website to remove them, and it seemed to have worked. After, I started receiving this error message.

Please help as soon as you are available.

Hey,

So basically I have been getting this message every time I leave my computer unattended for a period of time usually over an hour. I get a pop up box that says 'Generic Host Process Win32 Services Error' and it makes it so my volume completely doesn't work (says no mixer devices are available) and it also turns my blue bar where start is located at the bottom of my screen to the old style grey (like a windows 95 setup would be). Also, turns every browser I open to the old style like a 95 window would look like.

I did restore my computer back to factory condition to try and solve it like a month ago, and it worked for a bit but now its back.. so that's why I think it could be a virus or registry error. Norton Anti-virus scans are clean though.

Here is my HJL:

A:Generic Host Process for Win32 Services Error

Why do you see "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem" or similar error messages?
The are several possible reasons of this error message.
Reason 1: You have one of numerous worms, viruses and trojans which pretent themselves to be legal svchost.exe or use legal svchost.exe to run themselves at windows startup. These threats include: CashToolbar Downloader-MY, System1060, CoolWebSearch Svchost32, ADCLICK-AG, ADCLICK-AX, ADUYO-A, AGENT-V, AGOBOT-KL, AUTOTROJ-C and many others.
Reason 2: Some legal DLL which uses svchost.exe to run itself at Windows startup crashed and causec crash of the whole svchost.exe service.
Reason 3: You have just installed update from Microsoft which contains errorneous verison of Windows Installer or double-byte character set (DBCS) characters support (only occures in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)).
Reason 4: You installed old printer or scanner drivers from Hewlett-Packard which are incompatible with the current version of svchost.exe.

Hi,
Thanks in advance for voluntary help. 2 weeks ago, few seconds after computer started

a. "Generic host process for win32 services has encountered an error"
popped up. I closed the window, considering it a random windows error and continued using my computer. Next reboot, the generic win32, error popped again this time disabling my sound

b. (There is a problem with your sound hardware. To install mixer devicdes, go to control panel, click printers and other hardware, and then click add hardware. note that windows sound still works. Like beep when error pops up. but no sound for movie/games etc)
and on 3rd reboot(over 2 days period) the computer had lost ability to connect to internet- wifi or Ethernet

c. (No IP address. Attempt to repair wireless or ethernet results in "Unable to connect to wireless network and unable to renew IP address error respectively)

Somewhere in those 2 days another error "Spooler subsytem app has encountered an error" appeared twice and only after generic win 32 error had appeared. For rest of the 12 days during 2 weeks(since the error) the computer was used mainly offline aka Movies+games. I have tried restoring back to a system restore check point all the way back to 6 months but the error stays. System Restore is the only method I have attempted. I have not used any antivirus or virus scans or any other attempt to fix my computer.
I do not have access to boot CD.

I thought this was related to Malware so I posted in that section here in this site. After a lengthy process and fully updating Windows XP, numerous scans, the user 'Extremeboy' determined it was not related to Malware and asked me to post the issue here.
