"Update Has Stopped Working"

by thatotherguy126 / September 27, 2009 3:55 AM PDT

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:

Problem signature:

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.

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

Will post a screenshot too, next time I reboot.
