Hi,
I get the message "Generic Host Processes for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close." whenever I close my laptop lid, which puts it in standby. When I open the lid, the message appears and the desktop icons are out of place. i.e. the screen seems to gain an inch below the start button.

It lists the following files as error files:
C:\DOCU~1\TOMGEO~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER1.tmp.dir00\svchost.exe.mdmp
C:\DOCU~1\TOMGEO~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER1.tmp.dir00\appcompat.txt

(The ~ is in superscript, does this mean that the file name has been shortened to make it easier to read?)

And error signature looks like this:
szAppName: szAppVer: 0.0.0.0 szModName: unknown
szModVer: 0.0.0.0 offset: 00000000

If any of this helps cos it means nothing to me!
If anyone can help me, or tell me how this error affects my computer I would be very grateful.
Thanks in advance
Tom

You have some spyware on your computer. You might try deleting everything out of your "temp" folder thru explore. You may want to visit the malware forum and see if anything there can fix it.

hopefully you have this resolved by now, however if you are still having issues and suspect that it is malware related I would start with our malware forum and see if they can make sure you don't have any malware installed.
