It's a worm
I had the same problem with some of my network computers. I fixed'em by updating my windows.
you can search for "Generic Host Process" in microsoft site to get the update if you're not intersted to get all updates.

have you got the XP install disk for your update level? eg XP + SP2..
run sfc /scannow
just in case svchost has a glitch, or some other process it handles.

did you by any chance have the IE7 beta installed at one point, and then revert to IE6?
I'm looking at this entry - check it for fixing with HT, and fix it.
