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

If the recovery files aren't working you can get a CD restore set from HP and try to reinstall all the files that way.

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:

How do i get rid of win 32 vitro? I've reformatted and vitro is back.


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.

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
