Generic Host process for Win32 Services

“Generic Host process for Win32 services has encountered an error and needs to close, sorry!” – This is a common error message for windows based computers and if its troubling you, please try the solution outlined above courtesy of Robert Loftus PC Expert.

“Generic Host process for Win32 services has encountered an error and needs to close, sorry!” – this problem relates to the operating system and not to your connection type. Basically windows has the hiccups and needs a gentle pat on the back so it can burp them out – just like a baby. Failing that if it doesn’t work, a two pound hammer swiftly delivered while you grin, wide eyed, foaming at the mouth and giggling like a naughty school girl should do the trick – just like a baby! OR USE LINUX OR GET A CAT!

What this means for you as the parent of your Microsoft Windows Operating System is that you will need to be patient, understanding, forgiving, and guide it as you TRY to make it do the things you want it to do rather than it doing whatever it wants to do – a baby.

Please follow these instructions in order to continue to enjoy your Microsoft Product – even though it will rarely do what you want it to do.
