For the past week, I've been getting a pop-up message saying something like "generic host server...and then Win32". After this message appears I get disconnected from the internet and can't connect unless I restart or shut down the computer.

Is there anything I can do to prevent this? It's happening more frequently now.

Here's a log of my HijackThis scan:
