I have found several posts on the topic but they seem to be too old. They point to applying patches, etc. that I don't need in my machine.
OS: Windows XP home SP2
I recently had a problem with my hard drive. I installed a new HDD and used Norton Ghost to create an image of the old drive in the new. Since I did that I started getting the Generic Host... error message.
I was trying to scan my computer in safe mode but I am using Norton Internet Security and it doesn't run in safe mode. I tried scanning it on line, but Explorer was shot down because of an error related to a file called mshtml.dll.
