    Generic Host etc............ is Windows DNS and remote networking services.

    It includes names like svchost.exe and lsass.exe.As long as those are located

    in the system 32 folder they are legitimate and should be allowed at all times.

    Some spyware tries to imitate some of those processes,so you have to check
    names and file paths.
