Like many others I have been receiving Generic Host errors as well as some other errors on my XP system. My computer is completely up to date, and I have tried every fix I can find. I did have a virus but successfully deleted it. However this simply made my computer have less errors than before I removed the virus. Now my computer can be on for a few hours before I receive the Generic Host error. I personally made my computer and updated all the hardware last Christmas. The last thing I installed right before I began receiving the errors was Avast!. I seem to be having an issue that I have no seen other's mention in all the forums I've read. My system's graphics change in open folders and such. What I mean is that my scroll bar, borders, and buttons on the window will revert to what looks like windows 95 graphics? When I first began to get the errors my whole system seemed to do this. Now my taskbar remains in XP while everything else changes.

I am an artist and use my computer mostly for my work. If I open Photoshop or another art program my system will quickly tell me that my Visual Memory is low. I'm not sure if my graphics card is going bad that would be causing all of this?

I have done a system restore. Updated my system. Scanned like crazy for viruses and there's nothing. I have followed all the procedures on the Windows website, as well as a few other fixes I have found on the internet. I am at a loss here, and I really need to get back to work on my art as its how I make a living. Pleaseeeeeeeeee help 8|

You may still have hidden virus's that were not found.
I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found HERE. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
