For the past couple of weeks I've been getting a "Generic Host Process Error" almost every time I use my computer. It happens at random times, but usually the computer freezes and I have to shut down via the power button within about 10 minutes.
I've read that this might have something to do with certain windows updates, but I cannot go to any of the windows update sites. When I try in Firefox, it just reloads the current page, and when I try in IE, it gives me a blank page as if I'm not connected to the internet. I've tried it in safe mode and get the same thing.
Some of the only good references I can find to this say it has something to do with SP2, but I have SP3. I don't know if the two problems are related or not but I started noticing the most problems when I installed MCafee Total Protection 2010. I can scan and scan and scan with this and don't get any viruses popping up, but I feel that it's somehow related.
