XP auto update error message

Just checking - has anyone had a problem with XP's auto updater?
This morning I keep getting error messages that there is a problem and it needs to shut down. I click ok and allow an error message to be sent but straight away the error message comes back.

I've tried rebooting but that doesn't cure it. I've now disabled error messages but wondered if anyone else had had this problem?

Thanks

How about not using Automatic Updates?

It's much more effective to be in control of your updates by disabling the above and visit the Windows Update site whenever new fixes become available.

The Auto Update system is a pain in the backside and you have little real control over when and how you update.
