OFF TOPIC - wuauclt.exe RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having trouble with this file, which started all of a sudden after being a perfectly running system.

    As soon as the file loads, absolutely everything freezes. I have to reset to get going again.

    But when windows starts, I have about 20 seconds to do anything before wuauclt.exe, loads and locks up the sytem.

    I realise its a Windows update service of some sort, I've tried turning the process off , with no luck.

    Because it only just began to give me problems, I thought it was something that windows has downloaded recently, so I tried to restore my system to before the problem...but "wuauclt" doesnt allow me enough time to complete the restore.

    Can anybody help?
