Everytime I use the internet for about 45mins am receiving the message "Generic Host process for win32 services has encountered a problem and needs to close."

I get the option of send error report or don't send and then my internet connection is closed automatically and i need to restart the pc to reconnect to the internet. :thumbsup:

should i reinstall win xp?

Have you recently checked for viruses?

Try the below: (if you have a Windows XP disk)

Bootup from your original Windows XP disk and choose 'R' at the prompt. This is the Recovery Console - press 'enter' - you will then be taken to another screen - choose '1'. It will ask you for the Administrators password - just press 'enter'. You will come to the command prompt. Type 'chkdsk /r' and press enter. You will see a lot of activity as Windows checks all your system files - when it finds any that are corrupt - it replaces them with a fresh copy from the CD and repairs them.

No...you need to try to figure out just what is the problem :thumbsup:.

There seem to be multiple causes/instances http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=G...G=Google+Search but there seems to be commonality of outdated OSes, programs, drivers (from the few instances I looked at).

If the OS is not current, I would make it so. That includes IE and OE.

I would also check for clues in Event Viewer.
