Posted 14 August 2006 - 02:22 PM

I am using wxp sp2. I received an error message: 'Generic Host Process for w32 services has encountered
a problem and will now close". I lose connection to any site, and I cannot reconnect to any site, plus I cannot
disconnect from the net. I have scanned for W32 Blaster with removal tool, and came up empty.
I have attached my Hijackthis Log and Silentrunner logs. Any Help would be sorely appreciated.
