Generic host process win 32 keeps encountering a problem and closes the system
This popup up message comes up quite frequently, especially after re booting. according to microsoft this is caused by security update 87333 and has a solution update to fix the problem. after many attempts to download their solution update, unsuccessfully, the problem is still occurring. I have unsuccessfully tried to download SP2. It will not work they say because this system is in an unstable state. What does that mean? I have recently run a system recovery from a partition on my hard drive. maybe the recovery files were not accurate or complete. No sound on my system. according to HP I have a bad sound card. Could the BIOS be causing my problems? Thanks Cal

It is possible that you are attempting to install a 64-bit version of Java when you have a 32-bit operating system. Check your operating and confirm this. In Vista you can find this using Start > Control Panel > System. This is similar if you have Windows 7. Here is what it looks like:
If after that you, you follow these instructions from Sun (Java) to locate and install the 32-bit version.

This article applies to:
Platform(s): Windows 7, Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows 2003
Browser(s): Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla 1.4+
Java version(s): 6.0
While trying to install Java a user gets an error message similar to: ' ... x64.exe not a valid Win32 application'
The error message is a result of trying to install a 64-bit version of Java on a 32-bit operating system. SOLUTION
User needs to install a 32-bit version of Java software, since a 64-bit version is not compatible with their 32-bit operating system.
I would install Spybot S&D (search and destroy). I believe this is one of the best spybot/malware programs out there because it creates a restricted site list for your browser that keeps you browser from obtaining anything from these sites even if you wanted to go to them. You don't have to constantly scan your system to keep it safe. It's also a good removal tool. The win 32 vitro comes from a lot of sites that have online movies.
This problem only occurs in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2)
So, you can upgrade by downloading SP3 and IE7 or you can download the hotfix from Mircosoft @ http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894391
Scoll down to:
Windows XP, 32-bit versions
Download and install.
Let me know if this helps.
Hi Joy; is this a new computer unit? when did it start occurring? is it right after you install a software or new hardware? if software, try to uninstall it and if its hardware, try to remove the hardware but before that, you may want to boot to safe mode, ( tap F8 when you pc starts to boot) just to check of some software is causing this because when you boot on safe mode, only basic drivers are being loaded, please try this so that we can isolate the problem thanks
