Since the other day the memory usage will range between 100,000-900,000. Some times a "Generic Host Process for win32 services error" will pop up if I don't reset my computer for awhile. Which will than stop abunch of services so I have no choice but to reset.

I attached the hijack this log. If I should run anything else that would help diagnose this problem please tell

Post a screenshot of the error message next time it appears...and tell us exactly what you are doing when it occurs.

<<...will pop up if I don't reset my computer for awhile. Which will than stop abunch of services so I have no choice but to reset.>>

Please...provide more details about what occurs. What do you do to "reset my computer"...how long is "awhile"...whatever it is that you are attempting to describe doesn't seem to have crossed my personal path yet and I have no idea what is going on with the system from such verbiage.

If you know that you have a malware problem, please state such. The error message you provided us is not necessarily indicative of malware, from what I see.
