I have been having issues today trying to connect to the internet. Contacted my SP and they weren't much help, except for BIG money! Anyway, I have Windows XP. I ran a scan on my desktop and came up with 20 viruses which had been quarenteened. I emptied the quarenteen.
I called my local computer store who recommended Combo Fix. I have a laptop that I was able to load the program onto a USB. I inserted it into the desktop, started the whole thing going, it ran it's report etc but I am still unable to connect to the internet on a continual basis. It lets me in for a few minutes and then the latest message I got was the one in my topic title.......what should I do next?

I would suggest a combination of Superantispyware and Malwarebytes. Then you might want to make sure that you arent being proxied to somewhere else (Open Internet Explorer>Tools>Internet Options>Connection tab>LAN Settings>Uncheck use proxy).

What is the origin of this message?

Windows doesn't block programs from Internet access...and Generic Host Process is a routine process connecting to the Internet.

Hello Rhonda2010 ,

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at step 6.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Since you have run ComboFix, please include the ComboFix log in the new topic. Please be sure to include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to try to resolve them.

If you cannot produce any of the other logs, then please create the new topic anyway, include the information that you were unable to produce the other logs and why and include the ComboFix log along with a description of your computer issues.
