It is very annoying and comes only when I am online and whenever it pops up it taken down the internet and I have to restart my computer again. The error details show the problem with svchost.exe and netapi32.dll

  1. Well, when I try to install the file from MS site, its shut downs my laptop immediately and restarts. First I thought that it was the part of the installation process and the file had been installed and the problem had gone away. But it comes back. Please see if you can suggest something better.

  4. I am getting this error if I start in safe mode or regular mode. It keeps popping up and won’t allow my computer to boot. What can I do. Don’t want to reformat. HelP

  5. Ok so I get the ‘Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem’ window come up. Same thing happens randomly at a time when I go online. If I press the close button I can’t select anything, which I have to restart my laptop. If I don’t do anything and just leave the window there I’m fine, but the window stays there. I believe this started after I scanned for viruses, and then came up with a a window saying that the virus was being quarantined…well that’s what my roommate says. The program that says it’s quarantined is called NOD32 I believe, and the language is in Mainland China characters. Since I don’t know how to read Mainland China characters at the time I asked which each available option said, so I decided to delete the virus. Maybe the virus was attached to a file or something? I don’t know, well that’s what happened. Is there a way I can fix it? Is there a file I have to download?

  6. Guys this error is killing me..It randomly comes and goes away..Its not hardware related,Not software related and I don’t think its driver related

    I think it might be a windows 32bit or sp2 problem…
    Here is what I did,I did not take the error away,but it makes it accure alot less

    Turn of ur DEP and install a hotpatch…Just google both of them

    1. Ummm…. only one problem, when i do it when the Host Process is already failed, it wont let me open Windows FIREWALL: it says: Windows Firewall settings cannot be displayed because the associated Service is not running. Then it asks if i want to connect to the Firewall Settings anyway, and i do. But then it fails again.
