Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem

Fixing Friends computer after he got a bunch of malware.
After, I keep getting a ''Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close'' error

I've run Spybot S&D, Adaware, norton AV scan, Kaspersky AV scan. Removed all they detected.

Tried the suggestion of turning of the windows auto update on another post, it didn't work. (from http://www.fixya.com/support/t1900699-generic_host_process_win32_services)

On a hp dv8000. intel cpu t2500 2.0ghz, 2gig ram, windows xp pro sp3.

Here is my Hijackthis Log.

Try uninstalling all of the drivers that aren't directly associated to your primary hardware. Possible troublemakers would be the network card and printers.

Read the Thread here.

Note:-
Generic Host Process for Win32 Services or svchost.exe is a legal and essential component of Windows which is used to host services which run from dynamic-link libraries (DLLs).

Please note that legal svchost.exe should reside in Windows\System32 folder and should not appear in startup list.

If it does appear, do a Malware/spyware/virus scan on your PC.

this is most likeley due to a trojan virus impersonating as win32 host process. review all services running and pay close attention to any service that looks weird. Run DRWEB free trojan cleaner you can download it by googling it.

I guess it is a network virus! Repair your os, or reinstall it if needed , and do not share anymore or buy a Total Security antivirus!
