Hi, I am not too sure what I have here, however I have been getting a couple of messages that give me cause for concern.

First I get a warning that the generic host wants to connect to the internet. I allowed it to connect, then sometime later I get a windows message saying that the generic host process for win32 service has run into trouble and needs to close.

From time to time I also get a warning that the generic host wants to act as a server, that request I have been denying every time.

I guess that my question is, 1) what the heck is the generic host process for win 32 service, 2) why does it want to act as a server, abd 3) should I give it server premission?

Thanks to anyone kind enough to reply. Wendy
