Preferred Solution: The protocol host process 1444 did not respond and is being forcibly terminated {filter host process 0}.

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.)

A: The protocol host process 1444 did not respond and is being forcibly terminated {filter host process 0}.

Can you try uninstalling the latest Windows Defender upgrade ?
Else you can try stopping the entire service itself.

Hi, this is my first time posting here, I came across this site while trying to Google fixes for my problem. I noticed that there are a lot of helpful members here, so I figured I might try my luck. So basically, I THINK I have the same problem as this fellow member who posted in this thread. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...pic=195142&Although our problems are similar, I'm not entirely certain they may be caused by the same thing so I just wanted a second opinion in case I mess up my computer by doing something incorrect.I've encountered a number of issues with viruses and malware over the past week, but I'm getting close to completely ridding my machine of all infections. I'm using a Sony Vaio FE-690P laptop and running a legal copy of Windows XP Professional.Before my problems started, I was using Ad-Aware and McAfee VirusScan periodically as my main defense against infections. When my computer started to act up, I performed scans through each program. Each scan turned up a number of items, some more dangerous than others, so I took note of them and deleted the items. Upon a system reboot, I performed the same scan again and found that some of the exact items I thought had just deleted reappeared. One of the four items that I was unable to get rid of was the Virtumonde virus. After doing some internet research, I downloaded Spyware Doctor, paid for a subscription, and performed a scan. Spyware Doctor found the same items as Ad-Aware, but wou... Read more

Upgraded dvd43 software, booted, and this error came up.I have tried multiple things.1. Ran the bootfix2. Tried the Recovery Console with their diagnostics3. Tried to get to Safe Mode and it will not load, goes back to this message.4. Tried to overlay the XP image (refresh it), no avail, back to the same message.I haven't found anything on the web that can help me so far. Looking to take the next step and ask for help.

A:Windows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x00000080

0xC000021A: STATUS_SYSTEM_PROCESS_TERMINATEDThis occurs when Windows switches into kernel mode and a user-mode subsystem, such as Winlogon or the Client Server Runtime Subsystem (CSRSS), is compromised. Security can no longer be guaranteed. Because Win XP can?t run without Winlogon or CSRSS, this is one of the few situations where the failure of a user-mode service can cause the system to stop responding. This Stop message also can occur as a result of malware infestation or when the computer is restarted after a system administrator has modified permissions so that the SYSTEM account no longer has adequate permissions to access system files and folders.I've never gotten this particular error...but if I did, i would treat it as a malware situation until proven otherwise.Louis

How do I fix this? I have Windows XP Home Edition Service pack 2

Thanks

A:Generic Host Process

You should state how you connect (Dialup or Broadband).

You also do not state if there is an Error Code with the message, usually viewed via [Details].

1) Try Windows System Errors, search on the page for your text. Better, get the Error Code.

2) Also, Microsoft Stop (BSoD) Error Codes

I suggest you bookmark both sites.

I'm running Vista Ultimate 32 bit, Service Pack 1, E6600 processor, 2GB memory. About a week ago I had a virus, sorry but I don't remember which one it was (I think it was HDD) but I was able to get rid of it.

I've scanned the file for a virus but it appears to be clean. I don't necessarily have to be doing anything for it to happen either. I may have been working on the computer and the left it for some period of time idle and come back and the message is there.

I see that heaps of people have problems with Generic Host Process crashing after installing HP printers, or Sound Card drivers.

I don't have that problem, but this new XP sp2 applet has me worried on another front..

I know that XP now directs all its internet traffic through the Generic Host Process, but my net monitoring stats suggest that it passes a whole lot more than you get told about.

When I first patched XP to SP2, the machine would lock up for up to 10 minutes after making a dialup connection to the net. Once I disabled windows firewall and installed Zonealarm, I found that it was the Generic Host Process that was connecting to an unnamed site (dotted quad address only). Geektools checked the address for me, and indicated it was a machine under the control of Micro$oft. What data was it that was streaming from my pc to theirs I wondered, as I told Zonealarm to deny Generic Host Process server rights (you have to allow it net access or you loose the net).

Now I have a broadband connection routed throughout my home on an 802.11g network, and again I noticed my new (six month old) notebook sucking huge amounts of data into the machine, while nothing was running. I checked Zonealarm, and found again that it was the Generic Host Process pulling the data from I know not where.

What the heck is it that Generic Host Process gets up to while you're not looking?

I wish there was some way to kill it off all together!

Any assistance appreciated.

That error is usually generated due to a faulty driver. Your Event Viewer may clue you in as to what device driver is causing the issue. Try updating drivers for sound, graphics, printer, etc.

By the way, you can turn off error reporting by doing the following:

I am having this exact same problem! If anyone knows the solution, I would love to hear it.
Although, I will add that I was told I needed to update my version of XP -but when I downloaded the update it said that my service pack 3 was more recent than the update. So that is definitely not the problem.

EDIT
I thought I was replying in another user's thread [email protected] And now I can't find a way to delete this topic so I might as well make it useful....

The issue is that I get a WIN32 error that it has encountered a problem and needs to close with the option to send an error report, which I usually do. Not long after that happens (it happens randomly, doesn't seem to matter what I am doing or if I am even using my pc) then random processes stop functioning properly, up to and including an entire system lock up. It usually begins with my media player/ any music/sound device or page because it tells me that I have no speakers connected and the sound just stops working. Or my browser will either crash or not load at all, I can double click the icon and the little hour glass pops up, then disappears but the browser never opens. By the time I realize it is happening again I can't even shut it down properly. Just have to hold the power button and reboot that way. Then it seems to function fine until the next time I get the WIN32 error.
I've run virus scans, malware scans, had my ISP tech people check into it and no one seems to be able to figure out the problem.... Read more

My laptop has been on for a few hours and I was browsing the internet when all of a sudden an error message pops up.

?Generic host process for win32 has encountered a problem and needs to close..."

It happened twice (within a 15 minute time span) but it doesn't seem to be affecting anything. I'm still connected online, can open a new browser window, etc.

I just want to know if this is something I should be concerned with and how to make it stop in case the problem persists.

EDIT: Also, I heard this can relate to HP printers. Yesterday, I installed a wireless hp faxer/printer/scanner/copier so could this relate to my problem?

Hello.
I've been riddled with a problem concerning rundll32.exe for a while now. I just recently scanned my computer and there was a worm in it which is quarantined, but some of the files on my external hard drive are not opening. It seems the worm has also infected my external hard drives, and whenever I try to open one it instead shows a shortcut redirecting me to rundll32.exe, and when I double-click on it it says that the 'specified module could not found'.
I googled it a bit and found rundll32 could also be a virus or a worm, and then I scanned my disk C, and it showed 4 rundll32 files. Usually only one or two are needed, aren't they? They are as follows:

1)rundll32.exe.mui - in Windows\System32\en-US
2)rundll32.exe.mui - in some winsxs folder
3)rundll32.exe - in system32 folder
4)rundll32.exe - in the same winsxs folder.

The first two are MUI files and the bottom two are Windows applications.
Are these really genuine windows processes? I'm not really experienced in these matters, and the bottom two files also showed a malicious software warning before. If one of them is really a worm, is there any way to delete it? I've got an antivirus installed but on scanning it comes up with nothing.
And yes, the HijackThis application is not detecting the rundll32 files saying that it does not have access to the host processes.
Thanks for reading, any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone!

Im having a few pc problems at the moment and I wondered if you could help me. Everytime I switch on the computer a message comes on the screen saying 'Generic Host Process for Win32 has cause an error. Sorry for any inconvenience'. It then asks me whether or not to send the information to microsoft. I said that I didn't as I can't connect to the internet (more later). Im reminded of this problem about every 2 minutes.

Also, my audio devices dont work and when I try and look at volume control, it says 'There are no audio devices installed'. My desktop theme also keeps changing from the Windows XP standard to the Windows Classic for no reason.

When I try to connect to the internet, it dials up ok but the same error message that shows when I turn my pc on, appears. Whether I choose to send the information or not to microsoft, it disconnects me.

The pc is running quite slow and a message on the screen is always telling me to insert the Windows XP Home Edition SP1 as 'Windows files have been corrupted'. I insert the only Windows cd that came with my pc but it says that it isn't the right cd.

I have Norton Antivirus and Internet Security set up and my definitions were updated on the 24/10/03. I've done a full virus scan and it says that I havent got a virus but I can't think what else it is.

On another forum someone suggested it might be the 'Blaster' worm, but i've downloaded the Symantec fix and it said that I wasn't infected with the virus.

Try running SUPERAntiSpyware, with updated definitions...followed by a thorough scan with your installed/updated AV program.

IME, spyware/adware frequently causes this type of error.

FWIW: Malwarebytes is very good at removing certain types of malware...there is nothing that removes all types, which is why a number of different tools are used by those who want to protect their systems.

Hello i sure hope you can help me !

I have a strange virus etc that prevents me from acessing anti virus websites it also stops me from updating windows, and certain microsoft made programs and from accessing certain microsoft websites.

The other effects of the virus is a strange occurence where one of my host processes will randomly crash after it has crashed it will cause a plethora of problems, such as crashing windows explorer, slowing down my computer and messing with my games (for example when i play HON it will crash the game if i open the Goblin Shop, but other then this the game works fine). It has also prevented me from saving word documents and just causes all sorts of trouble, but only after the process has crashed (Although while the host process is still running i still have the website acess problems)

Another effect the virus has is that on the second time i change the function of the computer it gives me a blue screen. Ok for example if i put my computer to sleep all is fine but if i then unsleep it play games for an hours then shut it down it will blue screen. The same thing happens if i put it in sleep then awaken then try to put it asleep again at any time. (Though this could be a hardware issue as i recently installed a new PSU + GPU)
