More info on my system problems

In a previous e-mail, I indicated I was having frequent crash problems
on my WinXP system. I have SP3 installed. I was asked to take precise
notes the next time it crashed.

The exact error message is:

"Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and
needs to close."

The detail is:

szAppName : svchost.exe szAppVer : 5.1.2600.5512
szModName : Flash10e.ocx szModVer : 10.0.45.2 offset : 000e6e00

I have no idea what it all means. Does anyone know what I need to do,
aside from completely reformatting my disk, to get rid of this error?

Yes, I'm mostly using Linux these days, but it would be nice to be able
to boot to Windows when I need to, and this error keeps crashing my work.

Thanks.

Download and install an older version of flash or you'll end up taking Dan
C's advice.

Flash plugin from Adobe. Go to adobe.com and download the latest version.

Uninstall Adobe flash 10, reboot and reinstall or follow Meat Plow's
advice.

I have a ton of resources in Windows that I need to consult every so
often. A few of them don't install in Wine. I need to use Windows to
get to them.

Sigh. Computer ran fine, then about two hours ago, it crashed again.

I think I'll have to save my sanity, use Linux until I can completely
reformat the disk. What a bunch of bother!

Thanks so much for your explanation. Makes sense and is much appreciated.

The most important things to not get corruption are 1) disable *all*
background programs in startup aside from anything not *absolutely*
required for security and *never* use the power button to turn the
computer off. Once you do, you have that little bit of corruption that
causes windows to lock up on occasion. And of course *wait* for
something to finish and don't panic.

So that would include my web server. That's in my "startup" and is not
required for security.
So that would include my database server server. That's in my "startup" and
is not required for security.

How the **** to I develop PHP web pages without a bloody web server and a
database server?

You have absolutely no idea about what you are trying to talk about.

Bullshit.

Wait for *what* to finish?
