    My Symantec Endpoint Protection started blocking svchost.exe every few minutes. A message will pop up and make a noise each time. I've checked the Symantec log file and the location for svchost.exe is the right one C:\WINDOWS\system32 . Any help is appreciated. Thanks. Here's the popup message:

    Traffic has been blocked from this application: Generic Host Process (svchost.exe)

    I don't know if this issue is related, but my computer has been freezing. I don't know why. I feel it shouldn't be,considering the fact that it's fairly new since I purchased it 2-3 weeks ago, brand new.
