    could be a virus... do a virus scan and remove viruses.. make sure your antivirus is updated regularly.. and that you scan for viruses regularly!!.. also download an anti-spyware like ad-aware and scan!!

    Actually that problem is beacuse of a malware that edits keys in the windows registry.
    Hence every time when u log in to ur computer the times starts and on expiry we are given a msg ...regarding Generic Host Process Send/DontSend

    U get some good antispyware or a malware removal and remove all the so called "Kachra" from ur machine...
    i would recomend using Zone Alarm for this purpose ...
    It will work definitely.

    Are no no it has nothing to do with the Windows cos ..the thing is ..that a pirated version and a genuine version are both the same only difference is of some files.

    All available version whether pirated or genuine are purchased only.
    Some on a distribution license where as some with private use license.

    I dont think that will make a difference ..in fact if he updates then the copy of windows that is running may get locked.

    critical security updates are issued to both pirated as well as legal versions.only certain downloads like WMP11 etc requires genuine windows.

    going a bit off topic here, but i thought it is important to let you guys know.there was an article i read recently on pirated software.pirated software are basically cracked software which are cracked by hackers or pirates by modifying the original source code.they tend to replace it with mailicious code which harms the computer.. they may add code such as key loggers or other spyware to it...so please be careful!!

    Hey i got doubt on that ...cos the thing is that microsoft issues licenses which are on commercial and private basis .....
    hence those which are private need to be activated cos the license is valid to be installed on simple 1 machine and is to be used for personal use ...
    whereas those given with commercial licenses can be installed for the purchased amount of machines ...i mean the license is sold for the no of computers.But the thing is that these dont have activations i guess and the company which purchases commercial licenses is requested to keep a check for the license given and hence if we can get a copy of such OS thats what we can call pirated software .....

    This is what i think cos see as the source code of microsoft is still not out hence even hackers dont have a hand on it......so cant say that they add stuff in it ....?
    A software can be added on the System but cant be shipped by inserting it in the OS.I may be wrong on all this but this seems a lot logical.


    What say ?Please correct me if u feel i may be wrong.

    that's why always try to get your hands on an original CD of XP even if you don't have an original key but almost all the pirated XP CD's are VLK versions which do not require activation.the only thing you need is a valid VLK key apart from an original VLK CD of XP.

    hackers can modify the critical files or add some files(like svchost.exe) & can create custom made XP CD's which they can distribute.i myself have made a custom XP CD for my friend to avoid using floppy disc to install XP on a SATA hard disc by adding required driver files & modifying windows file to direct it to install those drivers during installation itself so that my friend can install XP on his system without floppy.

    ya thats ok ...we can add files in there but can we add stuff that will run immediately after XP installation ?

    i think what whitestar is trying to say is..there are xp iso's available as torrents right?? which contain cracks etc.. these are modified ones.. so the guy who compiled the iso could have done anything with it..

    and my previous post was more related to pirated software more than OS.. but it can be applicable to OS also

    Windows Firewall is a lot weaker than .....the third party firewalls that u get .....
    Windows firewall needs a lot of configuration ...and the monitoring is not upto the mark ......
    Hence Third party firewall are in more demand ......
    Anyways its ur choice ....but ur machine will be more vulnerable to attacks even if u got windows firewall .......
    I have tried using the windows firewall by reading a lot of its configuration part but finally got down to ZoneAlarm.

    it also depends on how you use net,which sites you browse,what you download & what is your awareness about these things.i am using bsnl broadband for 3 months now & i don't have any antivirus or firewall installed.still no viruses/malware & sytem is running fine.though i would not recommend it to any one to use a computer without antivirus/firewall.since my formatting of windows is long due(i formatted & installed XP in june 2006)i am just testing to see if i can get a virus/other things.till now nothing.i only use process monitoring tools(not installed only standalone exe's) & sometimes use online malware scanner to scan some suspicious file.
