Recently I had a computer start giving me a Generic Host Process for Win32 Services error. At first I thought it was virus/malware related, but I assume not anymore since I have ran quick and full scan's with Malware Bytes, in safe mode too. Also, i have ran the full scan from Symantec, which the computer has on it. Malware bytes did remove a couple objects, but that did not correct the problem.
Once the error pops up the computer freezes, and has to usually be restarted by holding down the power button.
Under event viewer there are a few errors:
1. Event ID: 1000 Application Error
Description: Faulting application svchost.exe, version 5.1.2600.5512, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x001a3ae7.
2. Event ID: 1085 Userenv
Description: The Group Policy client-side extension Software Installation failed to execute. Please look for any errors reported earlier by that extension.
3. Event ID: 8 crypt32
Description: Failed auto update retrieval of third-party root list sequence number from: <http://www.download.windowsupdate.com/msdownload/update/v3/static/trustedr/en/authrootseq.txt>
with error: This network connection does not exist.
Also, the actual error that pops up information is:
szAppName: svchost.exe szAppVer:5.1.2600.5512 szModName: unknown
szModVer: 0.0.0.0 offset: 001a3ae7
Any help is greatly appreciated. I have ran the built in diagnostics on the computer, which is a Dell Optiplex 755 and there were no issues.
