My Dell Inspiron 1000 has been running fine with no problems & I haven't added any new programs recently. A week ago, I began, on startup, to get the following message periodically (not every startup):
"Generic Host Process for Win 32 Services Encountered a problem and needed to close. Error Report - yes or no?"
When I click on no, I'm at my desktop & then I'm able to operate the laptop without any problem.
When I click on Error Signature, the following appears:
sz App Name: svchost. exe
sz Mod Name: uknown
szMod Ver: 0.0.00. offset: 00000000
I have run Adaware, SpyBot, CW Shredder, System Security Suite & McAfee, Panda & RAV antivirus & spyboot programs to no avail. A file search turned up the following:
If the Error on Start Up Message can be eliminated, what should my next steps be? So far there doesn't appear to be any damage done, in that all programs appear to function normally.
My system is Dell Inspiron 1000, 2.20 GHz, 256 MB, 30 GB hard drive, Windows XP Home, 1 Year Warranty with 8 months remaining.
