I have a server that is giving me a fit. After I boot up the server shortly ( approximately 30 minutes) the server application that I have goes down and I have to reboot to get it up and running again. Once I reboot the server the following error comes up:

Generic Host Process for Win 32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close

in the details error message it displays

Error Signature
szAppName: svchost.exe szAppVer: 5.2.3790.3959 szModName: unknown
szModVer: offset 001f1cb0

following files will be included in this error report:


I would appreachate anyone's thoughts on how to fix this.

a good discussion here:

This is what MS has to say:

If you installed security update 873333 (MS05-012), you may experience one or more of the following problems:

* You may receive the following error message after you start the computer:
Generic Host Process for Win32 Services Error
Note This problem only occurs in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2).
* File names are not displayed in e-mail messages that include file attachments when the following conditions are true:
o The file name contains double-byte character set (DBCS) characters.
o The file name is longer than 42 characters.
