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.

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'm also gonna try to attach screenshots of my computer/error messages.

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

Hello, I have a problem with my computer, its Windows Vista 32-bit. When I start it up, it gives me this error;

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.

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.

For the past couple of weeks I've been getting a "Generic Host Process Error" almost every time I use my computer. It happens at random times, but usually the computer freezes and I have to shut down via the power button within about 10 minutes.

I've read that this might have something to do with certain windows updates, but I cannot go to any of the windows update sites. When I try in Firefox, it just reloads the current page, and when I try in IE, it gives me a blank page as if I'm not connected to the internet. I've tried it in safe mode and get the same thing.

Some of the only good references I can find to this say it has something to do with SP2, but I have SP3. I don't know if the two problems are related or not but I started noticing the most problems when I installed MCafee Total Protection 2010. I can scan and scan and scan with this and don't get any viruses popping up, but I feel that it's somehow related.

Any thoughts?

I had a virus (fake anti spyware) a few weeks ago. Finally got rid of it by removing in safe mode with spybot, superantispyware, malwarebytes and cleaning out startup programs in msconfig. However, every since then, about 20-30 minutes after I log in to my computer I get a popup error "Genric Host Process for Win32 Services encountered a problem and needs to close." Once that hits I have no internet connection, cannot open IE, and eventually cannot do anything. I also am unable to shut down. Start, CTL+Start, CTL+ALT+DELETE are all unresponsive. The only way to get out is to pull the plug. Once I restart I get the Win32 Services error almost immediately.

After a day or two of this I also started getting this error: "The instruction at 0x001a3b41 referenced memory at 0x00000000. The memory could not be 'read'." I had ran MB and Spybot again so maybe I cleaned out something I shouldn't have. In any event I tried system restore, and all the anti malware I know. I also ATF cleaner and a few miscellaneous fixes I found on similar posts but nothing stops this error from disabling my computer. My theory is there is still some remnant of the malware trying to activate or get to the internet and slowing, and eventally stopping, everything else while it does. I can't see it thought and everythign in msconfig appears legit. Any ideas how to get around this other than completely wiping and reinstalling Windows? I have checked dozens of posts for this ...

At that time i had internet but I had never seen that message come up, it would normally say connected to linksys and so on. So after searching on the net I found that resetting the tcp might work.

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\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?

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 .

I have updated windows 7, AND did a system restore; reinstalling steam right after the restore. But it doesn't seen to work. I checked the forums and tried the example where you change the Data Execution Prevention (DEP) to "turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select:" and that worked (after the restart). But as soon as I turned my computer off for a few hours and came back on to play, I got the same errors I was always getting.

I'm also getting these STUPID horrible messages when I type for too long:

A:APP Crash/ Host Process Error

Mical15, this error maybe a result of registry errors in your OS.

Try running scanning your registry for problems with ccleaner http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

A quick scan should detect missing/corrupt files and repair.

(I have read all administration threads, but not sure if I have posted this info in the wrong forum.)
My pc is windows xp, sp2. I have a few problems with my pc. My son downloaded some games offline recently, then the worst problems started. I get a Generic Host Process for Windows 32 Services error popping up when I reboot pc, and the speakers have stopped working-no sound.( possibly related)? I don't know if my pc has malware or its been hijacked. Also, when I try to turn on windows firewall I get a a popup : windows cannot start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing Service. I also get popups repeatedly that says my virtual memory is slow and pc is attempting to fix. Sims City Game is downloaded plus I believe a couple of other games, if you think the games are taking up to much space, I can uninstall them.


I would appreciate any help, thank you so much.

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!

Situation:

Within the last two days a seemingly random error has occured: some generic host process. I have two computers. One laptop and one desktop effected by this error. What they both have in common is that I recently updated windows with about 3 new patches. I also installed AviDemux and GIMP on both computers.


Programs effected:

IE, Opera, Outlook Express, StarCraft, and Yahoo messenger have all randomly crashed due to this "generic host process." They either crash immediately upon opening, or within seconds of useage.



Things looked at thus far:

I've done the obvious thing including virus scan, but found no infections. I've also looked at "msconfig" at the startup for any suspicious items, but found nothing suspicious there. My event viewer shows errors for fault bucket and internet explorer.



What I've done:

I tried to uninstall some of these windows patches on my desktop, but I still get the error messages. I also tried installing a patch specifically for generic host process (KB894391), but it didn't solve my problem.



Further Detail about the computers in question:

One uses an AMD Phenom X3, a new build as of January. New PSU, RAM, Video Card; a very stable system with no crashes/restarts.

The laptop is an Inspiron 700m with a centrino processor, it's old, but it's been stable with no serious problems over the years.

A:Generic Host Process Error

Hi systemErr, and welcome to TSF.

First of all this statement worries me and I think we should make sure it is not what is causing your problems.

Please pay particular attention to this paragraph,

Quote:




Now, one piece of advice that applies equally to AVs and firewalls. You only need one of each! Having more than one firewall and AV can cause possible conflicts and system instability. Although you may think you have more protection by having more than one of each, it could cause you problems you were not expecting.




which is located in this thread.

PC Safety and Security--What Do I Need?

It is ok to have more than one antivirus/antispyware software program on your machine for one time scanning but you should make sure that only one of each has realtime protection running. It is never a good idea to have more than one firewall.

Also i would like to see the error message exactly as it appears on your screen as that in itself may provide clues as to the cause of your problem.
