You have Malware on your Computer, Update your Antivirus and run a full and clean scan of the computer. Anf if you know how to use HiJack this, you could try and check your Sytem logs for a thread that looks something like: 03 - Toolbar: (no name) - {736b5468-bdad-41be-92d0-22ae2ddf7bcb} - (no file)
I would recommend downloading Spybot Search & Destroy, its a free an effectice malware removal too http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html

You probably have some software interfering with the svchost process.

Run Combofix, an Hijack-this like software that usually fixes the svchost issue.

Hope it helps

Generic host process for win32 services has encountered problem and need to close we are sorry for the inconvience -- can u plz gimme a solution for this. This pop is very disturbing. Plz help


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.

Generic Host Process for Win32


Hi

This may be because of the corrupt files or due to an virus infection, how ever you can fix this problem by replacing the corrupted files with clean system files. For this you require a OS cd. Follow the instructions below.

This process is called System File Checker(SFC)

1. Go to Start, then to Run, and type in " SFC.EXE /SCANNOW " ( only text in bold) press Enter.

2. This would ask you to insert the Windows XP / Vista Installation CD.

If problem still persists, feel free to revert back.

GENERIC HOST PROCESS FOR WIN32 SERVICES HAS ENCOUNTERED A 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!
