Well...I'd say that message is an indication that something is trying to connect to the Internet...but cannot because there is no connection.

Makes sense to me...why would your connection be disconnected? Isn't this an "always on" connection?

i just noticed it the other day when i opened the computer before turning on my router, its really annoying since i know there is something wrong, i already scanned my computer trice with NOD32 and superantispyware and it found nothing so i'm guessing its not a virus but something i installed? im guessing its the router's driver or whatever.

btw thanks for reading my post :)

Possibly pertinent:

http://techblissonline.com/generic-host-process-for-win32-services-error/

Generic Host Process for Win32 Services or svchost.exe is a legal and essential component of Windows which is used to host services which run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs). Multiple instances of Svchost.exe can run at the same time. So it is not a problem in most cases if you see five or six or even more copies of svchost.exe running in your services because they host different groups of DLLs.
