Hello, I'm hoping to try to pinpoint what is causing the error "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services" error every time I start up.

I'll give as much info as I can, and would be happy to dig up any more details that are needed if it helps solve this issue.

I'm using Windows XP Pro 64 bit 2003, installed on a brand new computer, built a month ago. The OS only has SP1 and I upgraded all MS updates available (including SP2). The issue occurs after upgrading. I have tried doing it stepwise to pinpoint the culprit, but it seems like it might be a combo since I only start getting the error after everything is updated.

I've done a clean install, ran sfc (which yeilded no results--not even saying everything was ok). Web searches indicate that this problem is system specific so no fixes I've tried worked for me (patches, hot fixes, etc.).

The only other issue, that happened right away before any MS updates, and still happens, is that I can't get the Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus drivers to install (I have the driver install disk that came with the motherboard and have checked for updates on the manufacturer website).

I can give a list of my hardware if need be.

I have found solutions to most of my other computer problems on this forum, so I'm hoping this won't be the exception! :) 

Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for any help/advice.

Does anyone have any ideas where I can start on figuring out what is causing this error? I did find that the Event Log shows Events with IDs 100, 101, 1000, and 1001 happening very frequently---is that possibly what is causing the issues?
