I know you guys have had a lot of these in the past, but from looking through old threads, they're not exactly the same as the issue I'm dealing with. Hope you guys can help!

My problem is this, randomly, it seems, my computer comes up with the following error:

Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are

sorry for the inconvenience.

szAppName : svchost.exe szAppVer : 5.1.2600.5512 szModName : unknown
szModVer : 0.0.0.0 offset : 00000000

C:\DOCUME~1\Nate\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERf765.dir00\appcompat.txt
When looking into Event Viewer under the Application tab, this is what I find:

When this error occurs, I am not able to do much of anything. I can click the start menu, but nothing from there or anywhere else opens. I cannot even shut down properly, and am forced to do a hard reset. It starts up again as normal and everything seems fine. This seems to happen for no apparent reason. It has done this to me three times last night. The first time I was just browsing the internet, the second, I was playing WoW, and the third I was asleep, with only Windows Live Messenger running.

To further help, I have attached the logs for both HijackThis and GMER. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

Hello,

I have the same problem.

szAppName : svchost.exe szAppVer : 5.1.2600.5512 szModName : unknown
szModVer : 0.0.0.0 offset : 00000000


C:\DOCUME~1\user\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERcde4.dir00\svchost.exe.mdmp
C:\DOCUME~1\user\LOCALS~1\Temp\WERcde4.dir00\appcompat.txt

Closing those two ports is not something everybody agrees about. I also don't know exactly what to do.
I have ran Hijackthis but dont know what to do with this.
I tried all kind of things with msconfig and regedit.

My computer runs just fine. Only i cannot update Windows update. And this is offcourse a big error.

Somebody can help me out?

Bart
