"Update Has Stopped Working"

Whenever I boot up my Windows Vista laptop, I get an error message stating that "Update Has Stopped Working". Here's the detailed description of the error message:

I have absolutely no idea what is wrong, although if it's a rundll32.exe problem I'm extremely concerned. I haven't really noticed any bad effects since this has happened; my Windows Update seems to be working fine. Any idea how to get this fixed would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jim M

Thank you for the suggestion, however this did not fix the problem.

Will post a screenshot too, next time I reboot.
