Then, you try to install an update from Windows Update or from Microsoft Update. In this scenario, the Svchost.exe process that runs Windows Update stops responding. Additionally, you receive an access violation. This access violation stops the Server services and the Workstation service. For more information about the symptoms that are addressed by installing the 916089 hot fix, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

From the article....."When you run Windows Update to scan for updates that use Windows Installer, including Office updates, CPU utilization may reach 100 percent for prolonged periods"

 

I wonder what they consider a 'prolonged period'...........

That would probably depend on the processor. I would think it'd take longer with the 1GHz P3 on the Win2K than the 2.4GHz Celeron on the WinXP ...

 

But I'm not crazy enough to be doing anything else while it does its thing. I have it set to NEVER do auto-update, and I specificly go there each month and let it do its thing on its own terms.
