I've not seen this error before,
Dec 16, 2008 4:47AM PST

but just to make sure it is not any sort of malware, download and install MalwareBytes, update it, run it, and let it quarantine anything it finds.

There's a very good description of the problems MBAM can find and resolve in the forum discussion here;

It may not be the same problem as yours, but the procedures suggested by Marianna are the same.

Try that first, and see if it finds anything.

You don't have to buy anything!!!

1/ Just find in your computer the file WUDFHostl.exe (with a l at the end!).
2/ Kill the process tree in the task manager [right clic on the process and then "end process tree"]
3/ Delete the file previously found.

Hope it's help you.

I read in some other forums some bad solutions and suggestions that told me to delete files and registry keys.

It took me two days and a 100$ technician to reinstall my computer after it wouldn't start up, only to find that the error returned after reinstalling my software.

After buying the ms-errors software and running it twice, the error stopped. Hope this helps somebody out...

Just as I reported here:

I solved it for FREE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>FREE

It was just Malware
A very easy fix

1. I downloaded Malwarebytes and installed it:

2. I updated Malwarebytes (Note you can even use the manual update here:
Or see issue #4 here:

3. Ran a quick scan (it took 10 mins Happy )

4. Removed all found Malwares at the end of the scan

Yes Yes Yes. and I fixed it for FREE

I notice there are MANY free online Malware Removal Guides
I stress to others to find a good/respected (free only) one (anywhere)
And have your issue fixed for free

Hi kimsland9
Thanks for your suggestion but it wasn't helpful, maybe for other errors it will.
i download it and it didn't solved my errors, like other free software which suggested in other forums. i had to buy the ms-errors, i thought it a waste of money but you know what it solved this error and speed up my pc.

thanks for your help

The ms-errors solved the error for me while malwarebytes did not.

Kimsland - please stop spamming the different forums trying to promote malwarebytes, it's getting ridiculous

Malwarebytes is FREE
Nov 16, 2009 5:23AM PST

lol Grin

Malwarebytes would have to be the best
Its mentioned on every single forum. By every single support person, in removing Malware
Even the biggest and most respected forums on the Net Wink

Not only that but its >>> FREE
It certainly isn't Spam, and obviously you do not have enough knowledge to know that.

Malwarebytes is 100% the best free Malware removal tool there is.

Hey I made a guide here (on one of the forums I supported at)
It includes running Malwarebytes Wink All for free

BUT, your messages are Spam, ie purchase some useless NOT REQUIRED program

Hy everyone out there, of the thousands and thousands of members I have supported, I have never told them to buy anything. And all issues were solved for FREE
Do not buy anything, especially, that program (mentioned by others ! here)

kimsland - i am reporting you
Nov 16, 2009 5:28AM PST

I am reporting you for spamming boards about malwarebytes - I'd appreciate it if you stopped.

MalwareBytes did not solve my problem, it even slowed down my computer.

PLEASE Moderators, please delete these SPAM posts by the members above

Malwarebytes is perfect and is not Spam
I am highly experienced and I am a Moderator here:
That's right a respected Moderator with 17,000 support posts

If this were at our forum the member would have been banned by now


Its stated to be used by ALL respected Malware removal sites. All of them

Please Moderators, hasn't this gone too far?
