    Default Generic Host Process & Scan Failed,Auto errors?

    I am getting 2 errors and don't understand why, or how to fix them.
    Generic Host Process for Win32 Services was blocked from accepting a connection from the Internet ( 123).,N/A,N/A - - (The word Port when typed here gets a smilie face but it is the CAP letter 'p')

    This error is on almost everything that is scanned! Here are a few examples:
    AV/treatment,2006/09/21,11:32:36 -4:00 GMT,,C:\Documents and Settings\THEBEAST\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\index.dat,Scan Failed,Auto

    AV/treatment,2006/09/21,12:14:38 -4:00 GMT,,C:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware SE Plus\Skins\GhostRider.ask>arrow1.bmp,Scan Failed,Auto
    AV/treatment,2006/09/21,12:33:24 -4:00 GMT,,C:\WINDOWS\WindowsUpdate.log,Scan Failed,Auto
    AV/treatment,2006/09/21,12:38:38 -4:00 GMT,,C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\default,Scan Failed,Auto

    How do I get these to stop? Or is it normal?

    Well the GHP is your computer trying to do a time sync with a nuclear clock (port 123). You can turn this off in the clock settings. As for the other ones, chances are the file was in use when the AV tried scanning it. A failure just means the scan on that file couldn't be completed. Chances are there is nothing to be done for that.
