Every once in a while, this "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services" error notification shows up, and it stops my connection. How to fix this problem? It's annoying because I have to restart my laptop all the time..

Is SP3 installed?

Are all critical updates installed?

It's your system.

But...your attitude leaves your system quite vulnerable to malware, which could be evidenced by your current problems.

If you desire, I can move this to the Am I Infected forum.

If not, there's not a lot I can think of that may be useful.

It's always been like this, regardless of my attitude.. I don't think it's affected by malwares..

You really need to change your thinking about updates and listen to the advice given.

Having said that ..........that Generic process can be blocked or allowed by your firewall.

What firewall do you run?

Whenever I get that error, it's usually resolved by defragging my hard drive and making sure there is less than 10% fragmentation, and more than 15% open space on the hard drive.
