    Dear Sir,

    I am using windows xp sp2. Recently I upgraded from IE 6.0 to IE 8.0. Since
    then I am getting 'Generic Host for win32 services needs to close down' often
    in the midst of browsing. I have avira antivir 9 anid zone alarm 5.0
    versions. On getting this error, the internet connection just freezes and I
    am unable to display the connection status from the taskbar. The connection
    status windows comes and it immediately disappears. I had zone alarm and
    antivir on when upgrading to IE8.0.

    Even installing hotfix kb 894391 does not help resolve this issue.

    I request your help in this regard. Thanks for all your posts.

    Yours sincerely,
    R. GANESAN.
