I had read from Microsoft website for solution but still cant get a good answer.

It say Window XP SP2 only will encounter Generic host process for win32 problems.

I am currently using Window XP SP3 but just now when i am surfing internet,suddenly it pop out and say Generic Host process for win32 error and etc..

I pressed Send report to microsoft but i get no solution for it.

Anybody can answer my doubt?
Is my computer having problems now? Or some way to fix it?
Thanks.

Hi :thumbsup:.

I believe that you can amend the MS pronouncement to include SP3, unless a fix was specifically included in SP3. I cannot draw that conclusion.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/894391

See the date on that notice? At that time, SP2 was the latest version of XP rollups...which would lead me to think that the error also occurs with SP3 (for some users).

I would suggest using one of the fixes outlined at http://www.sizlopedia.com/2007/04/28/fix-g...-process-error/

OK.

What is the full, exact error message that you receive?

What websites are you visiting when this happens?

How many of those proposed fixes...did you try...and which ones?

Well, I'm a bit different in approach than you.

If I had a computer situation and there were four possible fixes listed that might work for me...I think I'd try each of them, hoping that one would work.
