Generic Host Error



Symptoms:

* You are surfing the internet or are engaged any type of Internet activity when suddenly all your Network activity goes to halt. You can still see the Internet connected icon in the tray but you cannot surf, browse or do anything.

* You get an error message something like “Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.”

* Error message reporting about faulting netapi32.dll and svchost.exe.

* You try to disconnect your Internet because of no activity observed but the Internet icon won’t disappear.

* You receive an error message like “Your PC has recovered from a serious problem” etc.

Procedure To Fix:

Follow these simple steps and your Windows will be fully cured of this menace.

Close Port 445:

1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) by clicking Start menu, and then click the Run icon.

2. In the small box that Opens, type: regedit then click the OK button. The Registry Editor will now have opened.

3. Locate the following key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\NetBT\Parameters

In the right-hand side of the window find an option called TransportBindName.

Double click that value, and then delete the default value, thus giving it a blank value.

Close Port 135:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\OLE

Set the value to: N (it should currently be Y)

3. Close the Registry Editor.

Shutdown and Restart your computer.
