Fix Generic Host For Win32 Process Error

My last post about Fixing Generic Host Error on your Windows was appreciated a lot not only in the blogosphere rather the whole Internet. I do not say this out of mere words rather if you search Google for “Fix Generic Host” you will find my blog at the top and most of my traffic from Google is due to this.

This error has been haunting most of Windows PCs from a long time and is really one dreadful bug. The problem in my last fix was that it would cure the Generic Host Error Message from appearing but it would close the connection to the network PCs.

Here are 4 new solutions to the Generic Host For Win32 Error in Windows:

Solution# 1:

  1. Hop to ‘Run’ and open ‘Regedit’
  2. Navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Services > Browser > Parameters
  3. Find the Key
    Name: IsDomainMaster
    and set
    Data: False
  4. Restart Your PC

Solution# 2:

  1. Go to ‘Run’ and open ‘cmd’
  2. Type ‘netsh’ in command console then press enter
  3. Then type ‘winsock’ and press enter and then type reset
  4. Restart Your PC

Solution# 3:

Get the LspFix and follow the steps as directed

Solution# 4:

Get the Microsoft Update Patch and apply it. Thanx to Nirmal for this.

I hope one of these solutions will definitely help you rectify the erorr

Moreover you can always see my old guaranteed post about Fixing Generic Host Error

    You are a legend.

    I have been trying to fix the ‘generic’ host thing for months and found your other page which didnt work for me but had some great info/advice. I then found this page via [another lock-up] and google.

    YAAY.. it has been running for 4 hours now and no error messages. This was after patching/hot fixing being told I had a deeply embedded trojan etc etc.

    Thankyou for your very clear and easy to read assistance.


  • Raj July 5, 2007, 7:08 pm

    • mina January 26, 2010, 8:13 pm

      I have this problem too.
      please tell me what should I do???
      I did the same that you wrote up, but it wasn't helpful

  • RonRon September 1, 2007, 7:54 am

    Applied all of DJ Flush’s advice. Also tried Nirmal’s suggestion.Problem not solved. Never found a wutemp file to take Raj’s advice. May have to reformat to a different windows.Any more suggestions.

    Thanks just the same. RonRon

    • jay June 26, 2009, 3:57 pm

      hey just instal threatfire firewall and your problem wil be solved.its available free.

  • Min456 September 2, 2007, 9:33 am

    Here is my suggestion. If the error appears, ignore it. Continue using the internet as usual

  • girish September 11, 2007, 11:31 am

    Hi Dj Flush i tried to resolve this error by your solution but it didnt work. Does this occur only in the servers of Lan network or in the other computers of Lan too … can I change OS to win 2000? please answer me

  • Dj Flush September 11, 2007, 6:11 pm

    Everyone here please also check out the alternative solution to fix generic host

  • Harry September 15, 2007, 11:38 am

    Min456: Please explain how you “ignore it” when you no longer have an internet connection once the problem has occured.

    If you can’t provide useful information keep your hands off the keyboard.

  • Mark September 24, 2007, 9:08 pm

    He says ignore it…just continue surfing…don’t press any buttons of it…but there will come a time that another win32 error will appear, thus making your connection offline.

    Until now it’s my problem. I can’t connect my database because of this networking and that generic host error πŸ™

  • Amir October 27, 2007, 11:11 pm

    Just turn windows firewall on. There will be no generic host message.

  • gino November 3, 2007, 3:07 pm

    Oh My God!

    Thank you much for this important and really helpful post. I appreciate it.

    I have been trying to solve this problem for a month until I found this and it really works. I patched it and applied the solution#2. Thanks a lot your the man πŸ˜€

  • zampuda November 22, 2007, 9:56 pm

    DJ and Nirmal both of you are appreciable. I have formated my system four times in 2 days but now I am trying your solution. Thanks a lot for so useful tips.

  • psokarovski January 19, 2008, 3:49 am

    Wow I fixed on every computer I had except on my home file server…tried all fixes but still nothing and then I find the brightness at the end of the road πŸ˜€

    Solution1: Install Windows Vista
    Solution2: Install Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon With KDE4

    or maybe a dual boot…must tell I am surprised how fast vista is, from what I’ve heard i expected something like XP on 486 machine

  • William January 22, 2008, 3:45 pm

    You’re a very very nice man. Thanks, my problem is now fixed.

    Even Microsoft don’t know about this solution!

  • Pabitra January 24, 2008, 7:06 pm

    What if I try the registry fix? will it work?

  • Sushmit March 14, 2008, 10:42 am

    I Tried your old post. Still I am not able to get rid of Host Process Error. Please help me dude. It’s really creating problems for me. Thank you.

  • Gsabog March 21, 2008, 2:20 am

    If none of the above works then download smitfraudfix. Use smitfraudfix in safe mode.

    Here is the download link. everything is in there even the instructions


  • PinkRayneDrop March 29, 2008, 10:13 am

    As I just posted in your other tips…You rock. I have fixed the problem that even Microsoft could not help me with. It’s worked for me…I am forever in your debt!

  • Rahat mirza May 8, 2008, 6:36 pm

    There is no solution

  • Rodel May 19, 2008, 12:24 pm

    I tried solution # 2 and it worked. Thanks a lot.

  • margot June 3, 2008, 12:39 pm

    i will try it… tnx… ur site is very informative

  • Rohan Shenoy June 7, 2008, 1:05 am

    Hey DJ,

    Method 2 is working for me(CMD>netsh>winsock>reset)

    I can’t tell you how relieved I feel after this issue got solved. I tried so many solutions in the past including smitfraudfix and sasser worm remover utility.

    I also remember reading somewhere that such an error can also be caused due to improperly removed internet software. I was using some sify broadband software in the past which was not uninstalled properly. May be this has something to with that!

    Anywayz, this worked great.

  • chuck June 25, 2008, 3:30 am

    Resetting winsock worked. Thanks!!

    What causes this? I upgraded to XP SP3, PC worked fine for three days, then lost access to my other four networked PCs, for not real reason..e.g., did not install new software, or change my system.

    Thanks again for the help.

  • jul October 11, 2008, 10:07 am

    Hi DJ,
    i read your older post in fix for generic host for win32 process and i’ve done it. The results are losing my connection with other PCs, while the Generic Post Process doesn’t come up again.
    Now i’m going to try the alternatives above.

    The question is : Should i reset the HLMsoftwaremicrosoftOLE string value to “Y” and reset the parameters to “Device” before applying one of those alternatives above?

    Thank you so much for your kindness..

    • adrian January 2, 2009, 10:03 am

      I have tried all DJ Flush’s methods and still not working, so I combined them following K’s method, and add 2 fixes from Microsoft, and now my computers can connect to the Internet without losing the LAN connection.

      1. Close port 445 and 135
      2. Install the fix WindowsXP-KB894391-x86-ENU and restart
      3. Install the fix WindowsXP-KB921883-x86-ENU and restart
      4. Reopen port 445 and 135

  • Mary Lou October 12, 2008, 2:24 am

  • Joseph November 27, 2008, 7:02 am

    Hey there,

    Thanks for solving my Generic Host whatever problem, but since you’re an expert, I’ve something else, that may be connected.

    Usually I’m connected to the Internet using a GPRS USB Modem ‘Solomon EDGE’; no problem (until this morning, but that’s solved), I also have the possibility to connect to a WiFi connection (secured, but I do have a key), but I can’t use Internet nor Outlook although the connection wizard says: ‘connected’ and the small icon shows a flickering screen and a yellow beam. I know, this description may seem a bit foolish, but I’m not an expert, just a happy user, as long as everything works.

  • aghie@indonesia December 1, 2008, 12:24 pm

    WWDC (Windows Worms Door Cleaner)
    Try to download it…

    Just close the ports 135 and 445 from it..

    it’ll completely solves your problem…

    (i’m sorry if my english was poor) XD

  • Gokul December 30, 2008, 7:00 pm

    You da man! My PC is back to life.

  • Huang January 8, 2009, 6:56 pm

    I tried DJ’s solution one and solution two but it didn’t work. The error still appears. Then I followed Aghie@indonesia suggestion to download WWDC then close port 135 and 445 with this software, the problem is fixed.

    Thanks to DJ for this great post and your solutions are greatly appreciated. Thanks to Aghie@indonesia for the great suggestion too.
    If any of you would like to download this free software, this will be the link : http://www.softpedia.com/get/Security/Firewall/Windows-Worms-Doors-Cleaner.shtml

    I followed the the first suggestions on the page to get rid of the win32 error and then when I restarted my computer I could not access the Internet, I get a message that there are no wireless networks in my range. I don’t know what to do as now I am worse off than before and it seems that I can get a strong signal from my router but for some reason no Internet.

  • sailukitta October 16, 2009, 8:25 pm

    Hii…Its been 1 and a half year since i've been facing this Win32 error and thats the most hated part of my life when that error appears each time i switch on the computer and start my browser..I tried each of the solutions given here but none of them worked…Since it is only due to the browser that this error is occurring it is obvious that it is due to intrusion of some bloody virus that this error is occurring though i'm not an expert in any of these..I've used almost all the antivirus softwares available in the market and as a last resort i installed Norton Antivirus which is supposed to be the best of all…..i now regret for not having installed it for last one year….IT WORKSSS!!!…….i'm finally out of the problem..Each time that error tries to kill my pleasure of browsing, NORTON ANTIVIRUS blocked it …..So folks…I think the only reason why this error is occuring is intrusion of some bloody virus and the solution is NORTON ANTIVIRUS……

  • sailukitta October 16, 2009, 8:37 pm

    Though Few of the solutions work they do have side effects like turning of the task bar to classic view or disabling of audio drivers…..One stop solution…NORTON ANTIVIRUS….download the trial version from http://www.filehippo.com/download_norton_antivi… and try it for 15 days jus as i did…ask me if the prob persists…i'm too excited for having found a solution for such an ordeal….

  • sailukitta October 16, 2009, 8:42 pm

    Ppl Plzz dont break your heads with anymore solutions for this as NORTON ANTIVIRUS is the only true solution for this…..belive me……i tried each of the solutions…they either dont work or work creating some side effects…..but not norton…

    Installing Norton Anti Virus definitely fixed the problem of Generic host. I also use Tune Up utilities to check and fix all problem. Everything works fine now.
