Dear Sirs
Having several problems and would be grateful for your expert views.

1. Getting Error message called Generic Host Process for Win32 (can't remember next word) and then in the details box I find the following:-

szAppName : svchost.exe szAppVer szModName : unknown
szModVer : offset : 00000000

2. If I right click some of the programs on my PC I get Dr Watson Debugger pop up and the system freezes forcing me to reboot.

3. I tried yoru Malware product, and although it scanned my PC it then closed and won't reopen, well it opens and then disappears off the screen and in ALT+DEL+ Ctrl it doesn't appear to be running.

4. When I attach new hardware like a new scanner and a MP3 player the items cant be found and its if the drivers are incompatible, but the same items connect easily to my XP laptop.

I have Norton System Works and wonder if this is the problem.

I have checked that I have all the latest Windows updates.

Thanks and Regards
