Generic Host for Win32 Services crash, browser won't load pages and audio is gone

Q: Generic Host for Win32 Services crash, browser won't load pages and audio is gone

Hi Tech Support Forums, this is my first time to try asking for support through the internet.

this happened right after I got my PC reformatted. I'm on WinXP Pro with SP2. I installed Avira and NOD32 right before connecting to the net. I was surfing quite well until the "Don't Send" error appears and says the Generic Host for Win32 Services crashed. I do not know exactly how this happened, maybe from a thumb drive?

Anyway, after "Don't send", the my browser doesn't load pages anymore. I've tried IE, Firefox and Chrome. Same thing happens. Sometimes the pages load partially after entering the URL or clicking a link multiple times, but most of the time it doesn't. When it doesn't, The progress bar for page loading shows for a split second, and then" Done". But actually the page hasn't moved! It's still the same page! Same thing happens with my router page 192.168.0.1.

I've noticed the audio is gone too. I learned to restart the Windows Audio through Run > services.msc. It worked, but the browser problem is still there. When I restart my PC, it goes back to normal. I am able to surf normally for 5 minutes or less before the svchost.exe crashes again.

I've tried MalwareBytes and doing in-depth scans with NOD32. I found a couple of malware and other viruses, but it doesn't seem to fix the problem. The Generic Host "Don't send" message doesn't appear anymore, but still I am having the same problems.
This is my HJT Log. I really hope to fix this soon, Thank you!

Preferred Solution: Generic Host for Win32 Services crash, browser won't load pages and audio is gone

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Our PC has been running slower and slower. Recently we began having random popup browser windows, additionally the PC randomly pops up a "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." error. Just in the past day or two, the desktop will freeze. Sometimes you can Ctrl+Alt+Del to get it back, other times a complete hard shutdown and reboot is necessary. Every time I run my virus scan (Avira AntiVir Personal) it detects files that should not be on the system, additionally, my antispyware is detecting things every time I run it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Since late last night, I've been getting a Generic Host Process for Win32 Services Error pop-up after about a half hour of browsing the Internet. Originally, if I ignored it or clicked "Do Not Send" (as it appeared as an error report message), my Internet would stop working until I rebooted. However that quickly went away, and was replaced by instead changing my taskbar to a strange, low-resolution version. This still happens, but it corrects itself over time if not instantly.After I received the pop-up while using IE, I would intermittently be either redirected to a random website, or a new tab would open with the website instead. I didn't write down the names of these sites as I simply closed the tabs when they opened to prevent them from loading completely. But, after an hour or so of using Internet Explorer, it began crashing after a few seconds of being run. EDIT: DDS report keeps getting cut off for some reason... Guess that the DDS is too big?

Hi Smitch and welcome to the Bleeping Computer forums. My name is Whisperer and I will be helping you with your problem. Although I am experienced with computers, I am currently a Trainee in Malware removal and, as such, ALL of my fixes will be checked by malware experts.On first glance through your log I note that you are running 2 antivirus programs, the first is Norton?s and the second is Authentium Antivirus. It is most important that you only ever have one antivirus solution running at any one time as they will interact and cause peculiar symptoms, one of which is the symptom that you are experiencing. 'Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close' Please stop one of the antivirus solutions and advise whether this resolves your problem.You do have an out-of-date Java installation and a couple of resource hogs to cure but I will await an update from you before delving any deeper into a solution and confine my research to checking your log.I would like you to produce a list of installed programs to assist me in any cleanup.To do this open your HijackThis Click on Open the Misc Tools section or Config? button, depending on how you are set up. If you used the Config... option then click the Misc Tools tabSelect Open Uninstall Manager , a list of your installed programs will be displayed.Select the Save List? button and save the file to your desktop.Please post a copy of this list and an up-to-date HijackThis log in your reply...

Running windows xp sp3. This is a repeat of a previous post to which I received no response. Since then, I have searched other posts with what I believed to be similar problems based on the descriptions. I have tried some suggestions from the responses to those posts, but nothing has cured the errors and redirects so far. I have tried a combination of Malwarebytes scan, ATF cleaner, Super Anti-spyware scan, and eset online scan, in that order. All turned up some infections, which were quarantined and deleted. Since then, I have run another Super Anti-spyware scan which turned up more malware. Problems persist. Please guide me through some steps that will cure this once and for all. Thanks.This is the text from the previous post, with some modifications for the most recent error in italic:Recently, I often get the following error soon after startup: Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close.

Hi

I am getting the often quoted (on this forum) Generic Host Process for Win32 Services...error message. It comes about sporadically and does not seem to follow an order. That is to say I could be surfing the net for 30 minutes with nothing happening or on it for 10 and it pops up--It also pops up when eDonkey is on.
As far as I know I do not have viruses listed or other problems listed.

I use the latest updates of the following: A2 (squared) GUard ANit-malaware/anti trojan As well as BoClean,. I have the free Sygate Personal firewall and use NOD 32 Antivirus. I also have SPygate Search and Destroy.

HiJAck This produced the following attached log:

My OS: Windows XP Home SP 1
Browser: IE 6.0.28

Thank you

A:generic host process for win32 services

Even though the problem is affecting the network, this may have to be addressed in the malware removal subforum. Only certain people here are able to help with removal of malware, as the rules say.

In order to ensure that advice given to users is consistent and of the highest quality, those who wish to assist with security related matters must first graduate from one of the malware boot camp training universities or be approved by the administration as already being qualified. Those authorized to help with malware issues have a gold shield next to their name and authorized malware removal trainees have a blue shield next to their names. Anyone wishing to participate in a training program should contact a Moderator for more information. Click to expand...

Therefore, my suggestion would be to report your post so a moderator or admin can move it to the malware and removal subforum.

I have a question about the Zone Alarm. There is always a program, Generic Host Process for Win32 Services, that is always trying to connect to the internet. Should I let this program have access to the internet?
 

A:Generic Host Process for Win32 Services

Win 2K has a bunch of things that always want to access the Internet. What I did was block them one at a time in ZA and see if anything was affected. I found most can be blocked. Sorry, I'm not at home now so I can't say if this is one I have blocked. No harm, though, in just blocking it and seeing what happens.

Hey,

Just a question that has been bugging me for ages. A while bcak i was running a un-updated version of win xp sp1 and i got that blaster worm virus which would keep shutting down my computer after 1 min. Just for your information i have bigpond broadband cable internet. The only solution back then for me was to use Sygate personal firewall to block it from access the net.

Since then i now have a fully updated Win XP Sp2

MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP2 (6.00.2900.2180)


I was just wondering, im 100% positively sure the reason why i i can't download updates from the Windows update site is because i have generic host process for win32 services blocked on sygate currently. The reason why i have it blocked is because that was the same thing i blocked to stop that blaster trojan/worm from shutting down my computer.

Is it safe to let it access the net now? im too scared to let it access the net because im afriad that the same blaster worm thing will come back even though my system is fully updated to this very day.


So can i let it access the internet now or is it still unsafe?

I'm running Windows XP Media Center SP3 on a Dell XPS, and here's where it may get confusing: a RAID array. The first hard drive no longer boots. It just hangs on the Windows load screen, and eventually blue screens. If I load from the second drive, Windows loads and I get the error.

I am getting "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services" when I'm not behind my firewall. Then my sound card messes up, I still have sound but media sound like movies and such don't work. Also some network/internet issues arise.

My website was hit by some hackers and everyone who went there got the same thing. I don't think it could be anything other than a trojan/virus because of that.

My friends also have the same issue. Anyone who has their computer connected to the internet without being behind a firewall gets this message and loses sound card functionality and network/internet issues arise as well.

Ok guys i have this problem.
I boot my computer and it tells me generic host process for win32 services has encountered a problem and needs to close. It gives me the standard "send error message to windows" thing and i click "don't send" because my faith in Microsoft was lost years ago. Then after that box closes an error comes up telling that svchost.exe has caused an error. It says it's not able to write to the memory at a certain location. My ram is not bad because i booted in safe mode and ran a test on the memory and got 0 errors. Has anyone else had this problem? If you can't fix it i dont care because im probably installing Vista in a few weeks anyway. Its just an annoyance i would like to rid myself of for the next few weeks. I searched online and Microsoft had a hotfix for it, i downloaded that but it didn't help.

But i have been facing an issue ever since of "Generic host process for win32 services" and my voice files will not play and my net would go down and I would have to restart my system in order to start my net again but after a few minutes or may be after an hour the error would pop up again and everything goes down again. I have antivirus called "Gaurdian Antivirus" installed. Although it is able to stop potential conficker and other trojan attacks, but they keep popping up at regular intervals with DNA scan warning which the antivirus safely removes. I have even reformatted my entire drive and re-installed the OS, but this problem occurs. I have a desktop too which is protected with the same antivirus and i have a USB pendrive also which i frequently interchange in both systems for data transfer but I do not have such a problem with the desktop. I have been to lot of so called professionals in my community but none have been able to rectify it. I am desperately hoping for some remedy as I feel so helpless in this situation. I have little knowledge about computers other than operating them, so i need help from professional like you ppl in bleeping computer.

PS: Also suggest a good antivirus which is available in the market.

As for your problem we should know if you run all the Microsoft critical update, and if you have upgraded to Service Pack 3,
You can take a look here to see if it solve your problem directly with this patch, you know.
For your anti-virus is not very good in my opinion, I say buy Karsperky antivirus, and 'very good.

I'd appreciate someone's view on whether I even have an infection here....

I have been uneasy about my PC lately as it has sometimes been reluctant to go into standby (I normally configure it to go into standby after being idle for 15 minutes, and it often stays up for hours at a time). So I have started to suspect that something is there running in the background.

But the only hard evidence I have is now that I cloned a backup disk using XXCOPY. When I boot from that cloned disk, a window pops up very soon after logging on with this message 'Generic Host Process for Win32 services has encountered a problem and needs to close'. I have seen that when booting from two different cloned disks. It seems to me that by cloning the disk problems are being revealed which otherwise remain dormant - I have never seen that error message on my 'parent' disk. (Only other difference is that when booting off the cloned disk the system recognises it as G: rather than C: as the original drive remains in the system - but I don't think that could cause this error).

Have scanned with Norton and MBAM and Windows Defender, and all are clean.

Am I just being paranoid? How to investigate further?

A:Generic Host Process for Win32 Services

svchost.exe is just a generic way to launch services. you call it with parameters and it launches a service. the trouble is when you look at task manager, you can never tell which service is which. i had an extensive post on identifying them here:
http://www.techsupportforum.com/f10/...er-313161.html
of course unless kaspersky tells you which svchost is doing the connection (by process ID), you're probably not going to know which service it is.
I would guess Windows Time (it synchronizes with the windows time server) or Windows Update (connects to Microsoft server to check for updates), but I guess it could be another, or possibly a rogue program posing as the generic host process.

I know this has been asked before, but I haven't been able to find a good answer.

Just got rid of the dreaded Security Tool from a friend's "New" laptop (handed down by someone who probably couldn't get rid of this virus.) These were my steps. After startup in Safe Mode,
1. Downloaded and started rKill
2. Deleted previous owners' profile and folder (seemed to be where virus was located)
3. Ran Bytes and S.A.S. (A little overkill, I know)
4. Downloaded and installed AVG free.
5. Created a Restore point.

After running Bytes (which turned up no malware or viruses) got error message:

Pops up on startup... Only things opening on startup (msconfig) AVG and Bytes. Am running WIndows XP Home.

Hi,
I am having an issue with my desktop computer. i came back from a few days out of town to error reports from adaware indicating it found some trojan horse. Now...shortly after bootup, i get the message Generic Host process for Win32 services has encountered a problem and needs to close. This seems to prevent either firefox or IE from working. I ran malwarebytes, quick scan which did not id anything. I restored the system to a date prior to my departure. Still experienceing the same thing.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I need help!!!!!!!! Since yesterday I've been having a problem that interrupts my internet connection. When I stay online for more than 30 minutes (or something like that) a window pops up telling me that "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and must shut down". Then I get disconnected instantly and cannot connect back. The two little windows in the task bar remain there but when I click "disconnect" they won't disappear. The only solution I found so far is rebooting the computer, but that's not too helpful. It's annoying. Any help in solving this would be appreciated.

I have been struggling with a problem on my laptop for a couple of weeks now. I found a similar problem in the forums (http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/754161-generic-host-process-win32-services.html). I tried the solutions listed in one of the post. My computer seemed to operate for a short time correctly, but I then got a 'mysterious' pop-up while I was on the internet, & it started all over again. I cannot got to Windows Update as well.

When I click information on the send error report box is:

szAppName: svchost.ese
szAppVer: 5.1.2600.5512
szModName: unknown
szModVer: 0.0.0.0
offset: 001a56c8

Thanks,

A:Generic Host Processes for Win32 Services

I have the same issue. Generic Host Processes for Win32 Services encountered an error and must shut down. My PC seems to be acting very funky, not playing .wav sounds, my task bar has a wierd washed out color, it seems to 'flash' once in a while.

I have tried to research the error but haven't found any permanent solutions. Please help! Thank you.

Can someone please tell me what "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services" is? i searched on google but it the answers there weren't too clear.

Generic Host Process for Win32 Services is getting past my firewall without me knowing. I only figured it out a couple of days ago. It's the only program that i haven't manually configured whether or not to allow it to access the internet and it botheres me that i don't know what it does.

my computer behaves weirdly sometimes. Is there any possibility that it is that program's fault? What would happen if i stopped it from accessing the internet?
 

A:Generic Host Process for Win32 Services

It *could* be a virus

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/HJTSetup.exe
Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Thanks to those who helped me yesterday.

One more thing puzzling me. When i reboot, Zone Alarm alerts me this:

Do you want to allow Generic Host Process for Win32 Services to access the Internet?
Destination IP:62.241.160.200: DNS
Application: svchost.exe
Version: 5.1.2600.0 (xpclient.010817-1148)

I usually click yes, otherwise my browser won't connect. Is it malicious? or am i being paranoid .. but i was hacked recently.

Cheers.

Hi! Hope someone can help.

Whenever I reboot this computer an error message appears that states,

To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program.
Name: Generic Host Process for Win32 Services
Publisher: microsoft
The dialogue box is titled Data Execution Prevention.

I found out what DEP is - but I can't find anything that resembles a program called generic host process.

This dialogue box reappears every time you close it.

I looked in the msconfig start up and did not see anything that resembled either. I did uncheck some things that did not need to be on start up.
