    About every other time I turn on my computer, I get this Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvienence. I have clicked on send report and nothing has helped this problem. The Error Signature reads:

    szAppName:
    szAppVer: 0.0.0.0
    szModName: unknown
    szModVer: 0.0.0.0
    offset: 7c918fea

    And Error Report Contents reads:
    C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER7f90.dir00\svchost.exe.mdmp
    C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER7f90.dir00\appcompat.txt
    How do I stop this from popping up?

    It would seem that you may have an Infection attempt with Msblast.exe. Although this worm was released in 2003 it is still out there. The side note from this site; Msblast.exe could hit YOU! indicates the Generic Host Process issue.

    Side Note:

    If the worm guesses incorrectly and the remote machine is vulnerable, the process svchost.exe on the target machine will crash. The system may become unstable, but the infection will fail.

    When svchost.exe crashes, a message like this may appear on Windows XP:

    "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services" error report...

    When svchost.exe crashes, Windows may create memory dumps of the process. These files are usually called user.dmp, svchost.exe.hdmp, or svchost.exe.mdmp.
