yes, but still I have same issue :(
Generally when this is happening, I usually suspect a problem with a virus (specifically a rootkit). When browsing google, or another search engine, do you experience redirects to unexpected locations? if yes, please download and run TDSSkiller from here:
http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?qid=208283363
I recommend running it anyway, just to be sure.
Also, if possible, go to start, select run, type "cmd". in the command prompt window enter "sfc /scannow" to check the integrity of system files.

Let me know your results.

Need to know which service is crashing.

Start>run>eventvwr.msc>System Log, and look for the red errors under the source Service Control Manager. Once you know which error it is, you might be able to disable it if it is not a critical/needed service, or we can assist with finding a resolution from there....

My problem  has been solved but I anot sure through which solution, I had some virus when I scanned the computer using TDSSkiller, but when I restart the pc I got generic host message, then I tried running GHremoval.bat and restart the pc still I got same error finally I research again and scanned my pc using F-secure malware removal. After I restart I did not get any more the generic host error till now :)
Anyway I fill like it was a malware which still exist in my network because when ever I try to access any share folder after while I am receiving the Generic host message. I have frizzed my pc using 'Deep Freez' to be protected by this malware.

Thanks for everyone help me to solve this issue.
