another "Generic Host Process ..." problem

  1. Hello all,
    New to the forum. I've recently been receiving an error message that has caused me to do some searching for an answer and have noticed one similar here on this forum.

    Hopefully, someone can help me understand the meaning of it.

    The error message:
    Generic Host Process for Win32 Services
    The perpetrator:
    AppName: winsvc32.exe AppVer: 5.1.2600.0 ModName: winsvc32.exe ModVer: 5.1.2600.0 Offset: 0000226f

    As you can see, this is from the winsvc32.exe and not the svhost.exe.

    I have taken the suggestions from others, I don't have a virus and I have run Adware. This error isn't causing any problems that I can find, nothing stops working, nothing closes. It's just a little annoying that it pops up randomly with an error. And I do mean randomly. I had everything closed down, the very basics to keep windows XP pro running, ... and it popped up.

    I've read the tech info from microsoft but it gives basic info about the exe and doesn't explain in more detail what it's used for.
