Hey all.

I've been having this problem with svchost for months/a year - basically, ages. It's always been there to ruin my game or generally screw things up, whenever it would cause the most damage/annoyance.

Error details:
Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

szAppName : svchost.exe szAppVer : 5.1.2600.2180 szModName : ntdll.dll
szModVer : 5.1.2600.2180 offset : 0000300a

I'm on XP SP2, i don't have any Norton products, i'm using NOD32 Antivirus and MS Antispyware (Defender). Virus checks say i'm clean, same with spyware checks.

It's weird. I used to have an old Pentium 4 2.4ghz, crappy 512mb DDR1 ram and all that jazz. I upgraded everything but didn't change the hard drive, i had this same error on my old PC, yet it's following me somehow :mad:

Anyone got any ideas :confused:

Neither of those helped me :(

It's getting more frequent now. I think it has something to do with Windows Media Player, my PC was fine for hours until i started playing some music, and 3 minutes in, boom, svchost thinks "this song sucks" and kills itself.
