I have this same problem, or did have, and I saw several references to it being caused by HP drivers. While this may or may not be the case, what I looked at was any new hardware or removable media that was connected via USB port. I was getting this problem after using a Attache 2 G.B USB Flash Drive, via USB port. When it is not connected I have no problems at all. Also, you might note, that the USB port I was using, was not a high speed USB port, so that may be helpful to you as well. So check out your USB ports and all components connected and elimanate 1 at a time until you find the culprit. Then youll have an idea on where to start your search for updated drivers.

Read the Thread here.

Note:-
Generic Host Process for Win32 Services or svchost.exe is a legal and essential component of Windows which is used to host services which run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs).

Please note that legal svchost.exe should reside in Windows\System32 folder and should not appear in startup list.

If it does appear, do a Malware/spyware/virus scan on your PC.

this is most likeley due to a trojan virus impersonating as win32 host process. review all services running and pay close attention to any service that looks weird. Run DRWEB free trojan cleaner you can download it by googling it.

When did it first start happening?
Do you have restore points activated? Try restoring your machine to an earlier date to see if it fixes the problem.

I guess it is a network virus! Repair your os, or reinstall it if needed , and do not share anymore or buy a Total Security antivirus!
