I am fairly keep getting an error message that says "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services encountered a problem and needed to close" It happens around 30mins - 1hour after i connect to the internet via dial-up and then about 5 minutes after the messege it disconects from the internet and i can't reconnect to the internet until i restart the computer.

I am running Windows XP SP2 and i have also scanned several times with Spybot Search and destroy and ezAnti virus and got nothing.

I appreciate the time you take to read my problem and thank you in advance. ^^
