More info on my system problems

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Jeffrey Needle, Sep 6, 2010.

  1. 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.

    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?
