A friend recently started having this problem. windows xp. After about 3-5 minutes online get message: "generic host process for W32 has encountered a problem and needs to close". We thought it was Norton Anti-Virus which she bought and only installed after having it in the box for a year but now uninstalled but still happening. A previous message prior to it shutting itself down mentioned "a hardware device" Now also receiving e-mails at a rate of about 20 a minute. Got well over 1000 and counting. covers
In your other thread, link above, I added information that you had placed in a second thread, and the FE. had locked. In case you where not sure how the forum works, I also sent you an e-mail with links to remove the virus.
It seems that you have not received this or the notifications of answers. The links above, provided by AndySD and Gaz 25 will remove the virus for you. If you are not sure what to do, then please post back on this thread, someone will help you further. Regards. j.
