Security and some helpful programs

Hello there, this post contains information and a patch for the Microsoft Windows Generic Host Process error.
Symptoms that you need this patch are if :
After you install security update 873333 (MS05-012), you experience the following problems:
• You may receive the following error message after you start the computer:
Generic Host Process for Win32 Services Error
Note This problem only occurs in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2).
• File names are not displayed in e-mail messages that include file attachments when the following conditions are true:
• The file name contains double-byte character set (DBCS) characters.
• The file name is longer than 42 characters.
Note This problem only occurs when the e-mail message format is Rich Text.
A direct download link for WinXP users can be found here. Otherwise, click here.
