I'm using Windows XP Professional Service Pack-2. I also use ADSL technology for Broadband Internet Service. I got a real problem with my computer & it takes place when I connect my PC with Internet. After working couple of minutes on internet I got a message "To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program".

Name: Generic Host Process for Win32 Services.

Publisher: Microsoft Corporation.

After that my internet connection gets disconnected. It's really very bothering. Is there anybody who can solve this problem?

Yes, it is possible that your computer has an infection in its system. Data Execution Prevention or DEP is a system within Windows that helps monitors programs that are running in the system.

This service monitors all program executions but it doesn’t prevent any harmful program from running or loading in the memory and installing itself on the computer. This only prevents programs from loading on some parts of the memory that are protected.

You see this on your screen because there is a program that tries to run on a protected area of the memory. It is probably a sign of an infection. Try updating your antivirus then run a full system scan on your computer.
