generic host process problem

Recommended Posts

please help anyone. i cant seem to understand if this (attached file untitled.jpg) is a virus or just a system/program crash. it prompts everytime the pc is on (once at a time). if i shut down the pc and turn it on again the error will prompt again just once, then i just click on "cancel" and "dont send" button. what could be the cause of this popup error and what should i do to fix the problem. i am using windows xp pro sp2, spybot 1.6, and AVG 8 free anti virus. my firewall is always off (windows firewall). i also attached a screenshot of the running processes and the outcome. please see attached files. any help will be highly appreciated. thanks in advance.
