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.)

Hi and welcome to Bleeping Computer! My name is Sam and I will be helping you. I apologize for the delay getting to your log, the helpers here are very busy.Your log is clean, so I don't think the issue is malware related. But let's see if we can figure it out for you.Click Start -> Run -> eventvwr.mscLook in SYSTEM and APPLICATIONS for anything around the time you are getting the error.Double click on anything you see with a red X, press the Copy button, and then paste it here in your next reply.

I thought I'd removed it, I removed the keys from the registry, found and manually deleted the file itself (thought they were clever, naming it "update.exe", didn't fool me for a second considering the folder it was in). But now, I keep getting a generic host process error with svchost and ntdll.I seen what you told someone else who had a similar problem to do, so I went ahead and generated the proper files needed. I made a couple of slight changes to them for privacy reasons, but nothing that'll change what's there or not regarding any possible infection I may have. I'm stumped, please help? I'm sure you can do it. Attached are the following:three text files, the logs/reports generated by OTL and RKUnhooker, and one PNG file, a cropped screenshot of the error itself.actually, I might need to edit this post, or reply to it, since I can't find the attach file option.edit: there is no attach file option as far as I can tell. Screw it, here's a link to a ZIP that contains the files: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=18EGGUJBedit 2: it's generated using winRAR, but I told it to make a ZIP (so you can use winzip, or just plain windows explorer if you have XP and up).

Hello,actually, I might need to edit this post, or reply to it, since I can't find the attach file option.That's because the Am I Infected forum does not allow attachments.

Whenever I use IE or Firefox, an error box pop up saying 'generic host process is shutting down'. After that, a 60 seconds box pop up telling me that it is shutting down the computer.

This all start after I got (at least) two viruses on the computer. One was AntiVirus 2008 and the other was a virus that would cause me to goto 'asiuoqgusdbaked.com' when I search for things on the internet. I tried to remove them with McAfee antivirus, Malwarebytes and Smitfraudfix. The Antivirus 2008 is gone, I believe; but the 'asiuopgusdbaked.com' one is still.

What do I need to do?

Sorry for the lack of really specific information, this just happened a half hour before I had to go to work. I'll post more info once I get back to my comp. Thanks a bunch for your time and help.

512, Svc pack 1.(I won't put SP2 on till I hear better
news), Norton 2004 AV,AVG,& lastly Zone Alarm(free version).

In the last few days a message has been showing up that
states "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has
encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for
the inconvenience". So am I.
There is an option to send a report to MS, which we have
done.When the error occurs we get disconnected from
the net and have to reboot to reconnect.
Since this machine is about two months old I can't imagine
why this is occurring.
I will post a HJT log if you ask.
Thanks...

Hi, I'm actually having a few problems with my computer that I think might be related since they all began around the same time. Any advice would be appreciated greatly. I'm going to provide a description of each of the problems followed by a copy of my log from HijackThis.1. At least a few times a day, new tabs will open up in Firefox that redirect me to an advertisement (e.g. hxxp://cuic.com/search.phphxxp://www.bighealthtree.com/video/s-23hxxp://lpgen.info/mylpgen/regerrors1/64x1299764_r1?c=camp3]hxxp://tutoringonlineservices.com/and hxxp://www.shopica.com/search.php?q=Design+Web&txn=3152-C1D4B7B8 )Some of these even change the size of the Firefox window. Also, while searching with Google on Firefox, links will either be dead (404 error) or redirect me to an entirely irrelevant page. I have only seen this happen twice, but immediately after I searched the exact same phrase on Google Chrome, clicked the same links, and it worked fine.2. This next problem was a lot worse the other day, but after running a few anti-virus programs in Safe Mode, its frequency decreased but hasn't disappeared completely. The other day I couldn't even turn on my computer for 10 minutes without this happening but now it will go a few hours until the problem occurs.

Hi

I have been receiving an error report box that says that there was a problem with the generic host process for win32.

I have received this message about 4 times in the past two days, i usually
receive it after turning the computer on.

I proceed with an error report, but unfortunately it doesn't relay back
much information about the cause of the problem.

I took a few screenshots of the error messages, and of what information
was provided in the messages, for which i combined into a jpeg file to
post here in the hope that someone here will look at it,and then could possibly help me to understand what the problem may have been.

If anyone here can help me with this matter, i would be most thankfull.

A:Generic host process for win32 problem

Hiya

Are you still getting this problem? If so, I see from the picture on the right that there are some files in the temp folder. I'm not sure what svchost.exe.mdmp is, but svchost.exe is located in the system32 folder.

So, do this. Open Windows Explorer and then locate this folder:

c:\Documents and settings\Local Settings\Temp

Now, delete all the files that are there. You don't need anything running from the Temp folder. Reboot and see if that stops the error message.

Just out of curioisty, what doe the file appcompat.txt contain? Virus scan this before you open it, just to be safe.

A friend has a Compaq laptop with XP Home Edition OS. He purchased this computer NEW approx. 1 yr. ago but due to extenuating circumstances has never really used it since. In attempting to get it going again, this AM, we encountered this error message which pops up after it first boots up and has been running for a short period of no longer than 3 to 5 minutes. The error message reads:

Generic Host Process for Windows 32 services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. If you were in the middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost. Please tell Microsoft about the problem: Yes or No. Then it goes on to provide a detailed Error Report which I failed to record.

My suspicion is that during the interim of non-usage he has failed to download and install any of the "fixes", which MS floods us with almost constantly, and that he will be unable to access the Internet again until they are all brought up to date. Is this the problem or could it possibly be a problem with his ISP, which is Earthlink (dial-up modem connection)?

Hi aenor and welcome to TSF
Try uninstalling you audio drivers though Device Manager in the System Settings in the control panel.
Restart your PC and install the drivers from fresh. Maybe there was a corrupt file that wasnt replaced by the update.

generic host process for win32 has encountered a problem

It looks like this virus is more than I can do on my own to remove.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware does not detect it, however I get the pop up window and can not open applications.

I must shut down and restart, then it fails load Windows and I have to shut off.

Then she works only to have this start all over again at any random time period.

I have recently done a restore with destruction and have updated all my applications except Adobe Acrobat.

Unfortunately I have viewed some documents online using this application.

My investigations reveals it may come from Adobe virus.

Funny how this is related to XP SP2 service pack when I have SP3.

I have been looking for work for two years and need my PC to be operational.

Thanking you in advance for your help.

A:generic host process for win32 has encountered a problem

I ran Malwarebytes 1.46 again. Then updated twice to 5073

Then ran TDSSKILLER. It found no infections.

Ran Combofix the system seems to be working.

Combo fix got rid of the 3 registry files I didn't like.

One was from Uniblue registry cleaner, no link
Two was from a PC driver update, no link
Three was some weird registry with no link

Funny thing that Uniblue was still on my PC after a destruction and restore from last month.
I discovered this when I was looking for a reason to stop my PC from being scanned and using 80% of my CPU.
That's How I ended up installing CC Cleaner and PC Driver update.
Final solution was to delete the index files in Fast Find (from Microsoft Office 97).
Then disable fast find.

After she was disable the CPU usage and scan stopped.

Then I started to get these infections as mentioned in the above post, including Walmart.

Now I have created a restore point.

Will go online to install Adobe Reader X, then create another restore point.

If PC is good for a few days I will create a final restore point.

Finally after 45 days after destruction and reformat I may have a good PC.

I was dumb and never backed up my data for two years. Still hurting from that.
I will post in 24 hours as to whether she is cleaned or still infected.

My firewall is in learning mode. An alert box has displayed with "Somebody is trying to send data to Generic Host Process for Win32 Services on UDP port 1029 from 82-39-129-199.cable.ubr05.newy.blueyonder.co.uk. Do you wish to allow it?" C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\svchost.exe

Because I had no idea what this meant, I performed multiple searches until I tracked down what Blueyonder is--a United Kingdom-based cable/digital television, broadband ISP service. Why is a UK-based Digital TV, Broadband ISP Sending Data to My USA-based PC? A few months ago I also discovered that my firewall had logged receiving packets from the UK-based equivalent of the USA Home Security Department. I blocked this activity via my firewall. Any idea what is happening to my computer?

HP Pavilion 551w with Kon-x dialup service (broadband/DSL not available in our rural area)
Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 with SP-2
Home-use personal computer not on a network
StopSign firewall and Windows firewall
Windows Defender
StopSign anti-virus, anti-spyware/adware/malware up and running in aggressive mode (daily scans have been infection free)
McAfee Anti-virus up and running in agressive mode (scans have been infection free)
Spybot Search & Destroy

What other info do I need to provide? I have absolutely no "techie" knowledge/experience.

Thanks,

I keep getting the message when i startup the pc.
"Generic host process for Win32 Services. Data execution prevention. Generic host process encountered a problem and needed to close."
My laptop is also frequently becoming nonresponsive with Office and acrobat programs.

I have noticed that this problem has only occurred over the last few days, when I boot my computer, 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 "send". Then after that box closes an error comes up telling that svchost.exe has caused an error. I've checked out the forums to find out if anyone else had Has this problem. One post suggested (http://forums.techguy.org/windows-nt-2000-xp/664709-yet-another-generic-host-process.html : "Click Start, click Run, type eventvwr.msc in the Open box, and then press Enter. Click the Application category. Look For Recent Errors " I did exactly that, but I don't know how to read/understand what the error message relates to. Please can anyone offer some assistance/advice?
Cheers all helpers.

Hi,

I have a windows XP machine and I get this error "Generic Host process for Win32 services has encountered a problem and needs to close we are sorry for the inconvenience" at least 2 to 3 times a day. The computer runs normally without any problems even after the error. I send this error message to Microsoft and no reply from them. The noticeable changes that I see after the error occurs, is that, the screens taskbar color changes to light brownish and then after a couple of minutes, it returns back to normal blue color. Just before this error, I have noticed that there is a flurry of activity in my computer, in terms of floppy disk drive lighting up and showing that its reading a disk. The HDD is reading for a couple of minutes and I know that I can expect this message very soon. I noticed later, that my windows firewall is deactivated and any attempts to activate it, is futile as it says an error 5 - "you do not have permission". I have been reading forums regarding this error and some have said to change the windows time server and deactivate the windows update, all with no luck. I have noticed before this problem started to occur, my computer doesn't respond if left idle and on further investigation I noticed, in my task manager, my processor is running at 100%. I found the process to be "svchost.exe" and there are multiple of them. I was so frustrated that I stopped the process. I did this a couple of times. I also checked with Proce... Read more

im new to the site thanks to google and trying to find info on this problem im having.

when i boot up my computer, after about 5-10 min i get a error message that says

i downloaded malwarebytes and ran that and it found a slew of 'threats'

i have spy bot s&d on my pc too and that really doesnt find anything either.
i also have ad-aware se on my pc.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:generic host error win32 has encountered a problem

Hello,Regarding Registry Booster:Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry. Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries require... Read more
