I recently repaired my win xp installation and ever since then I have been getting this message when win starts up "To protect your computer, windows has closed this program Name: Generic Host processor for win32 service Publisher: Microsoft" I am not able to do any update with microsoft. I dont know if this is linked to my problem above or if its something different. My repair disk has sp2 as standard - If that helps. Appreciate if anyone has a similar problem and would like to share some light on this issue. Thanks.
Thanks akanic, I think it helped but I still cant install any updates from microsoft, it downloads but fail to update. I even turn off my spyware just incase but no different.I left win firewall on as always cos win firewall been on from day one and its always been able to update so no changes on that part. Do I need to download something else from microsoft in order to install update? I have been on microsoft site but can't see what I am looking for, perhaps I am not looking at the right place. Thanks.
Hey akanic, dont worry, you have been a great help. I really appreciate all the help you have given me. I am going to do all the above and hope something would work. I will keep you informed. Once again thanks.

Once again thank you very much to both of you.
