    Two Problems (XP Home SP2)

    I have some minor problems on two computers.

    1. My computer, on bootup, sometmes comes up with the error message "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services encountered a problem and needed to close." I exit the error box and the computer seems to run normally. Any idea what/why this happens?

    2. Another computer at our Senior Center (donated) on booting up pops up a "Lite installer problem" (or similar message that I dont' recall exactly. Frankly, I have no idea what "Lite" it's talking about. Again, any suggestions?

    1) See FIX: DBCS attachment file names are not displayed in Rich Text e-mail messages and you may receive a "Generic Host Process" error message after you install security update MS05-012, and perhaps Generic Host Process Error Message and a Flashlight Icon Appear.

    2) Sounds like some form of adware/spyware. Try running various adware scanners, such as Spybot Search and Destroy, LavaSoft AdAware and Microsoft Anti-Spyware.
