I have read numerous complaints regarding this error, as I have begun my
search in an effort to resolve this new problem I have on both of my
computers since I have installed SP2 for WinXP Pro on them. The problem is
apperently very widespread, and people seem to be experiencing different
symptoms, and nobody seems to have the same advice for a resolution.

What changed on my computers before I started getting this error?

I installed SP 2 on them. One installation was done via download from the MS
Update web site, the other from the CD they mailed to me.

When I boot my computer(s) and log in for the first time, a window appears
telling me that "Data Execution Prevention" (DEP) has prevented a program
from starting that could possibly contain malicious code. "Generic Host
Process for Win32 Services" is the culprit, a code published by Microsoft
Corporation -!

The subsequent multiple error messages are the generic XP messages
indicating that "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services" encountered a
problem and needed to be closed. Please send Microsoft....... If I send the
error report to Microsoft, the error repeats. If I don't, I only get it once

There is some other occasional strange behavior on only one of these
computers (not repeatable and random) since I installed SP2, but otherwise
both of the computers apparently run normally after closing the error
messages at log in.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

After combing through many of the other postings regarding this issue, I
noticed a distinct focus on "HP Printers" in the various postings and
responses.

I have a network (Ethernet) connected HP All-In-One printer on my network. I
decided to go check for driver & software updates as it has been over a month
since I have done this. "Lo!, and Behold!" there was a critical update for
the HP software:

"Critical Update for network installed HP All-In-One Devices: Resolves
network performance issues when an HP All-In-One device is installed. If you
have experienced a DEP (Data Execution Prevention) error you may see more DEP
errors during reboot until the patch takes effect. Turn on your networked HP
All-In-One device before installing this patch....."

I have updated both of my computers with ALL of the latest software and
drivers including this patch, and the errors have not recurred. Looks like
this has resolved my problem with DEP errors at boot up & log-in on both
machines.
