well I actually saw this same error on the list but no resolution so Im goin to try.
first off, when this appears it kills my sound control panel, i can open it but when I look at audio devices there are none listed and its grayed out so you cant just reenable it. Restarting sometimes helps but it always comes back. Ive ran registry fixers the tdc program you guys recommended. Scaned for virii with my mccaffee av and trend micros web scan. No vrii or trojans or spyware. Also Internet explore takes a good 45-1minute to load. here is the details from the error followed by my hjlog hope you can help thanks a lot.

Oh yes occasionally, I cannot connect to the internet on the first try and have to
hit the home or refresh button and then it goes through and connects.

This has been going around since SP2 was released mostly. I have the same issue. I've also scanned TrendMicro, Ad-Aware, NAV, SpyBot S&D all in safe mode to no avail.
The problem is not malware - it is some form of security tool interfering with svchost.exe , or, some type of device software.
One suggestion was to disable DEP for scvchost - I did that to no avail. One suggestion was to remove all HP device software and get the newest versions - I did that to no avail. I've turned off (disabled at start-up) NAV, and firewalls - to no avail.

I get two error messages sometimes - sometimes only one or the other. The first is to the effect svchost.exe could not read a particular memory (nb: this is not a ram issue). The other is the Genric Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered an error and needs to close. Always happens at boot. :mad:

Some type of service is not being able to do its thing and is causing this.

I think I have some good news.... :tazz:

I have been fighting this same issue with my brothers computer all day. In my situation it appears to be an incompatability with Spy Sweeper and McAfee AntiVirus. I disabled the Buffer Overflow protection in McAfee and it's been quiet as a church mouse.

As to who has the problem McAfee or Spy Sweeper I'm not really sure. I suspect McAfee isn't quite emulating the intercepted APIs for SVCHOST.EXE close enough to keep a program like Spy Sweeper happy.

Hope this helps.

Lazarus - can you walk a novice like me through how you located that and what can be done about it? I use Symantec - although the errors happen even when disabled. I think my trouble revolves around the still image service. So I guess that could be printers, scanners, or dig cam.? WIA fails to start.
