I've got a Windows XP Machine that was running SP3. I would get Win32 Generic Host errors, also svchost errors and sometimes my desktop wouldn't load! Windows update doesn't even open, it shows nothing!
Sometimes programs I click on just does nothing. I wouldn't even shut down unless I have it the hard shutdown (at the wall). I've tried manually running programs such as explorer from TaskMgr when the desktop doesn't load but still nothing! (dekstop only sometimes does this)
I've tried a Windows SP2 disk, and used repair, I also get a scvhost error on the install screen, but the repair went through, but hasn't helped!
