Secure Host Process Error Message

Q: Secure Host Process Error Message

Good Morning,

I receive the following error message on every boot up of my Toshiba Laptop, running Windows 7, 64 bit OS.

F - Secure Host Process is trying to recover your information.

The message disappears after a few seconds and does not recur until the next boot up.

I assume that F refers to a USB device, but I never boot up with a USB device installed and I have always used the 'safe removal' process.

The error message seems to be of little significance but its persistent occurrence is very frustrating.

Any suggestion to solve this annoyance would be gratefully received.

Preferred Solution: Secure Host Process Error Message

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Just for grins after shutting down try holding down the power button so that the machine shuts down completely. Wait about 30 seconds. Then boot up. It may not work. But it shouldn't hurt to try.

Hi,

I'm having the problem with Generic Host Process. When this message comes my system is not able to access the network resources.

What I observed in the system is whenever this error comes one file gets drop in the system32 folder. I'm having an Antivirus along with Agnitum Firewall. An AV is detecting the file and deleting it. But what I observed next is it opens a Port 445.

Please help me out to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

Over the past week or so my computer has become incredibly slow. I've run several BitDefender scans and registry cleaners since i had originally thought it had something to do with a virus, but no luck!

I also keep getting an error message which says something along the lines of; 'host process for windows services stopped working and was closed'. This has been appearing continuously for the past few days, literally every two minutes.

I dont know much about this sort of thing so all and any kind of help is welcome!

I took a look around and realised posting a hijackthis log may help.

A:How do i fix the message error Host Process for Windows Services

its could be one of a few things.

When vista came out a lot of people had the issue due to software that wasnt fully compatible/up to date.

Others have had the issue with ATI Control catalyst if you have an ATI card, update the software and drivers.

last but not least it could be dodgy ram, so do some memory tests.

I'm almost positive that the error message appeared after the Windows update but can't be certain as I don't know how quickly the error message appears after the error has occured. The error message doesn't hinder performance but is annoying when it pops up. Can you please offer some advice/help on how to get rid of the error message. Thanks.

Ok, so since of recently, my computer has been acting really wierd. I would start the computer up normally and everything would be fine. But after spending some time on the internet, mostly around 30-45 min, I would get the same "Generic Host Process For Win32 Services" error message. And then after I close the box, my screen starts to act really wierd. A blank white bar appears between the top blue bar (on my computer) which would usually have the website , etc.. "Tech Support Guy Forums - Mozilla Firefox" and the menu bar. And then the windows box changes from "Windows XP style" to "Windows Classic style" on its own. I am still able to use the computer/internet but after a while, it starts to progressively get slower and slower. I have no idea whats wrong with it. I have Avira AntiVir and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and I have scanned my computer many times but nothing comes up. Please help
I have Windows XP
If you need to know anything else, i'll try my best help but i'm not the best when it comes to computers.

I keep getting this "Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working." message. Few days back I installed Call of Duty 4 on my laptop running Vista HP. It was then I started noticing this annoying popup message. I am not sure if CoD4 is responsible for this, but this message now pops up for no reason sometimes. It can come up while starting an application, transferring files to storage cards, copying files within HDD, playing movies. I dont know why it comes, but would like to know if there is any solution for this. Please help.

Hey everyone,

Could really use some guidance with this issue. I don't know what preempted this problem but here is what I see:

Constant DEP (Data Execution Protection)

Message says:

Data Execution Protection

Generic host process for Win32 Services
Then I get the following message to appear:

AXWIN Frame Window: svchost.exe ? Application error

The instruction at ?0x02c9f7a0? referenced memory at ?0x02c9f7a0?. The memory could not be ?written?

Eventually, a message comes up and states "This system is shutting down" Shutdown was initiated by NT Authority\System.

O/S is XP Home Edition
Scanned with Malware and it only detected Adware items. Cleaned and rebooted - no effect.

Where do I start? Will a virus cleaning software remove the items and if so, which software is best?

Thanks in advance for your help. It's greatly appreciated!

-Brent

My wife is experiencing stability problems on her computer which is running Vista Home Premium and is used primarily for Photoshop. Most often she will get the message "Host Process for Windows Service stopped working and was closed. A problem caused the application of stop working correctly. Windows will notify you if a solutiion is available".
This happens fairly frequently and seemingly randomly but not often enough to reliably troubleshoot.
Can anyone help us?

Hello, I have a problem with my computer, its Windows Vista 32-bit. When I start it up, it gives me this error;
"Windows closed the program Host Process for Windows Services because of this error." , and then I can't connect to the internet. I went into Event Viewer, and I found these two logs:

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.

My dad recently got me a new hard drive which unfortunately crashed. I put my old hard drive back in and immediately received the AXWIN Frame Window: svchost.exe - Application Error. Under the title it says: the instruction at "0x02baf7a0" referenced memory at "0x02baf7a0". The memory could not be "written". It then gives you the option to terminate or debug, both result in the computer rebooting after a countdown. Upon the restart the computer shows the generic host process win32 message that says this process was closed. After having the computer back up for about 5 minutes the AXWIN error comes back and the process will repeat itself if you respond to the error. If you leave the window up you can continue using the computer with no visible problem.When using google or yahoo searches: clicking a search result's link will redirect me back to google.com after momentarily skipping over another random website. Sometimes opening the link in a new tab will allow me to get to the desired website.Here are my logs.

I have updated windows 7, AND did a system restore; reinstalling steam right after the restore. But it doesn't seen to work.

I repeatedly get this error message and the effects are random. Sometimes I can keep using my computer for a while, other times it immediately freezes up and I have to shut it off. At times my computer is fine for hours. Or it might happen every few minutes.

I tried going through all the steps and scans before I posted. When I got to step 3 with the GMER it would scan for a few minutes and then crash my computer, causing it to restart. So I couldn't finish the scan.

Hey there,

Shortly after I start up my computer I get a "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services" error. Apparently it has encountered a problem and needs to close. When I click on the error report, I get the following:

szAppName : svchost.exe szAppVer : 5.1.2600.2180
szModName : ipnathlp.dll szModVer : 5.1.2600.2180 offset : 00021453

The following files are included with the error report:

C:\DOCUME~1\Benjamin\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER0183.dir00\svchost.exe.mdmp
C:\DOCUME~1\Benjamin\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER0183.dir00\appcompat.txt

Of course, when I send the error report I get no feedback from Microsoft. In addition to the error message my Windows Firewall will not work and the only sounds that will play are system sounds. I cannot play any other sounds on the system, not movies, not games, not music.

I've taken a pretty good look around and cannot seem to find anything helpful. I've run a AdAware Personal and Spybot to no avail.

Does anyone know what might be causing this error, or should I nuke it from orbit and reformat my machine?

hi, please help me, its has started to really annoy me now, here is the problem.

Everytime i start my computer up, it becomes slow and unresponsive and after a few minutes, an error message appears:

svchost.exe - application error
the instruction at "0x77f57bd2" referenced memory at "0x00000010". the memory could not be "read" . ok, to terminate, cancel to debug.

Straight after that another one appears:

Generic Host Processfor Win32 serviceshas encountered a problem...options to send error report, debug...

When i close these two down, the computer becomes unresponsive and wont even shutdownor restart properly, just stuck on a empty screen with just my wallpaper. explorer.exe and "THOR MAIN WINDOW" has to be ended cause they are running. But after that it just seems to do nothing.

If i dont close the two error boxes, everything seems to run fine, like normal but with two annoying things obscuring objects.

The problem only seems to occur when i am connected to my cable modem. Once disconnected from the modem, the error message does not appear but connected once more, its comes back, exactly the same way.

Generic Host Process error. The error pops up about 5 minutes after I boot up windows/log in to a profile. After the error few programs work properly, and the computer runs really slow. I had more information until my computer froze... I'm in safe mode right now. Anyone know what the problem might be? I've ran norton anti-virus, spybot, and adaware all with the latest updates and nothing came up.

Please help, Thanks!

when i start this error message shows up...
Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close

it is scaring the life out of me because so far it has caused MAJOR problems,
when i close a window, the taskbar will not be in winxp view but an older versions, and it has messed up my sound. when i click on the sound icon it says "there are no active mixer devices available." the sound problem has never happened before.

thank you!

Generic Host Process for WIN32 Services has encountered a problem and needs
to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Seems many people are getting this error message. I've seen that both audio
drivers and HP drivers may be to blame. Seen solutions for WIA and DEP
changes and also to download the latest .NET framework.

Error occurs for me after reboot (always) typically accompanied by a "Error
The instruction at "xxxxxxxx" referenced memory at "xxxxxxxxx". The memory
could not be read. Click on OK to terminate the program.
Printer (HP) wont work, and audio is inop about 50% of the time.

Seems to have started happening to a lot of people (me included) around
mid-late Nov 04.

Anyone have a good solution? I already tried the MS KB article in this topic
and HP printers - that solved the problem until a restart or reboot - then it
was back again. I've heard svchost might be blocked by a firewall, or that
it could be a worm, or that dll's are corrupt/missing.
Error signature:
szAppName : szAppVer : 0.0.0.0 szModName : unknown
szModVer : 0.0.0.0 offset : 00000000

The following files will be included inthis report:
C:\DOCUME~1\Clayton\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERf59a.dir00\svchost.exe.mdmp

Hi guys,

I'm new here and not really too savvy with computers. My partner told me to get Hijack This and post the log after some weird stuff happen to my computer.
Basically it won't shut down correctly so always scans itself, then i get a generic win32 error. Also a while ago my sound stopped working, and my start icon went to windows 98. I have to work around the generic win32 error box as if i click on it my computer freezes. I have pasted my log from Hijack This, any help would much be appreciated as I am doing my final university essays and can't really afford to have my computer die on me .
