Windows Update kills system on daily basis and Fixit, doesn't fix it...

Does anyone know of a manual fix for this problem? Or is some software that is installed causing this problem? A service is not configured properly? Thanks!

Download http://www.mediafire...1n7u34jh5fqk8ga and run the batch file. When it's done you will have an nLite add-on. From the add-on, extract WUA.exe and run it with this switch: WUA.exe /wuforce

I have the same problem and I ended turning off the automatic updates. I would like to try with this Fixit in case it helps.

@x: I get a zip archive with 2 inf's and a dll, I don't use nlite, what is nlite?

Pretty much everything that was ever wrong in XP has been fixed, with Service Packs or my own tweaks. It now runs just fine without any more interference from MS.
In fact, their updates have caused more problems with XP computers world wide than any recent virus. I got tired of running service calls to reverse the damage done
by MS updates and I've just started turning OFF Auto Updates on every XP machine I work on. I turned them OFF on my own XP PC several years ago now.
Most MS updates involve still trying to FIX that nasty thing they call Internet Explorer. I mostly just ignore that thing and use Mozilla Firefox instead.
Life is too short and too complicated anyway, without letting MS sabotage our favorite OS.
So my advise to everyone and anyone, is just Turn Off Auto Updates, use Firefox for your browser, sit back and enjoy life. I do!

Your "WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution" sub-sub-folders may have corrupt contents.
Here's a script that may/may-not work (it looks a bit overkill) -
Note that it deletes the CONTENTS of the named folders (where your problem MIGHT be).
It harms absolutely NOTHING to clear them out - they are, in essence, dross taking up valuable space.
