To complicated for me

Anybody Help me out. This happened many months ago after an Windows automatic update. I reported it and I got a hot fix which sorted it out.
Cant seem to report the error this time

Same thing - svchost errors & freezes after automatic update. I did the report error thing and followed the link provided, but it didn't seem to relate to my flavour of XP (Media Centre SP2). Like grajackgor it's the second time it's happened, and last time a hotfix did the business.

Will try a virus/spyware scan...
