1.It looks that the HP all in one printer is causing the problem.
Go to:

2.http://www.opentechsupport.net/forums/archive/topic/20912-1.html
Generic Host Process Error Message and a Flashlight Icon Appear

3.Disable the Windows Image Acquisition service.

If this does not help, uninstall 821557 hotfix.

4.scan your system one more time with online viruses scanner.

also check for adware/spyware.

5.Additionally, how is your CPU usage before the crash occurs? It is not by any chance at or near
100%, because I read about problems with errors in the registry that led to svchost.exe consuming a lot of CPU time. These problems could often be fixed by running regclean, also see LRI41's post at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/WinXP/Q_20812132.html

6. run this online virus scan >> http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
Im sure it will come as clean... and if SO then your system is clean.... its norton which has the problem.... Live update caused problems with Generic Host Process.... uninstall Norton and restart.... notice if you are getting the errors... if NO then you can reinstall Norton..... it should work fine now! :)
