Hi all,

I encountered an error after logging into Windows XP Home Edition Ver 2002.
I checked the event viewer and here is what is recorded:

Anyone can help me troubleshoot which program is causing this problem?

Thanks in advance,

Do you have any anti-virus software installed? I have seen Zone Alarm cause
that error. Do you note the date and time when the Generic Host Processor is
caused-you may find that it happens when you close down the computer, but
the error message only gets reported when you start up. Obviously if it
occurs when shutting down-it doesn't matter all that much! The solution with
Zone Alarm is to shut it down manually before turning the PC off.

Yes, that's exactly wat happened in my laptop. I have only Norton Antivirus
2004 installed. Surprisingly, the error does not appear in subsequent
shutdown and restart anymore. Weird but no more problem. Thanks for the
reply.

This just happened to me for the first time this morning. It's strange
since I have not updated or installed anything recently.

MS offers a fix here:
