wuaclt.exe has stopped working in vista ultimate
I've just installed Vista Ultimate in a new machine - Asus P5B, with 2GB of memory.
The first few days it went OK. But when I came in to my workplace a couple of days ago, after logging in, I got the following message:

wuauclt.exe has stopped working
You can check the remedy online.
(Then it gives me two alternatives)
A. Check the remedy online and close the program
B. Close the program.

If I click A, it accesses the internet and then recerts to the original screen without doing anything else. If B, I get either nothing, or the infamous blue screen.
Safe mode is OK.
Has anyone experienced the same thing, or got any good ideas? I'd appreciate any help.

Re: wuaclt.exe has stopped working in vista ultimate
That's windows update agent.

Try this:
Run > services.msc (windows key + R for run command)
Stop the "windows update" and "cryptographic" services.
Delete your "C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution" directory. (Don't worry, windows will recreate it upon restart).
Restart your PC.

Any luck?

Thanks for the advice. In fact what I did was do a complete re-install of Vista. It went smoothly, and there doesn't seem to be any problem.

I'll certainly try your suggestion if it happens again (and if I remember it!)
