wuauclt.exe error
MowGreen....we tired the solution provided but we are still having an issue.
Our issue however is a bit different from what I'm seeing here.

We think that the wuauclt.exe is actually a virus. We keep getting the
wuauclt.exe has encountered an error...... and when we click don't send the
report, we just get a blank screen, no icons, nothing. I can do the
Ctl-Alt-Del and bring up task manager and start programs from there, but how
do I get my screen back and all the desktop icons, start button etc.

Many thanks,
Deb

A good reason then to start a new thread and not just try to rename one
which is over a year old...

Looks like explorer.exe isn't running? So, restart it...
