Generic Host Process for win32 problems

Asked By 430 points N/A Posted on -

There is an error that has been re-occurring every time that I am on the internet especially when I am going to start a game. The error pops-out a few seconds when the game starts. The error is: “Generic Host Process for win32 services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience”. On the pop-up box, there are two options to choose: “Send Error Report” or “Don’t Send”.

When I choose any of the options, the browser will only crash and exit.

I am currently using Windows XP Home Edition and my browser is Internet Explorer 7. I sometimes could not open any site that I would like to browse even if my internet connection is stable. I looked for a possible solution for this problem, deleted some unused applications, and installed updates on Windows.

However, I received another error message with Svchost.exe application error: “The instruction at “Ox745f2780” referenced memory at 0x00000000000000. The memory could not be read.” I also tried switching on and off the firewall but the problem still persists.

I hope somebody knows how to resolve this issue. This has been affecting my work since I use my computer for business purposes.

Thank you very much.

Are you using Windows XP SP2 and encountering Generic Host Process for Win32 Services Error? Don’t worry. We do have several solutions to fix this nagging error. For Windows XP SP2, the Generic Host Process error can potentially occur on any system and at any time. Most would have received this error message, shortly after system start up. But this error actually occurs during the previous system shutdown. According to Microsoft, this error occurs in windows XP sp2, if security update 873333 (MS05-012) had been installed.

Microsoft also claims, that this problem only occurs in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), but it does provide fixes for Windows Server 2003 and windows 2000. Microsoft had earlier issued security update 873333 (MS05-012), to fix a Vulnerability in OLE and COM, that could allow remote code execution. If you encounter this problem in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2, then upgrading to XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) could easily fix this problem.

Go to Run and type regedit.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE >> SYSTEM >> CurrentControlSet >> Services >> Browser >> Parameters.
Find the key IsDomainMaster.
Set its value to False.
Restart the computer.
