I've recentlt started receiving an application error relating to a file called wuauclt.exe. The error continues to so *very* helpfully advise me "The exception Illegal Instruction. An attempt was made to execute an illegal instruction. (0xc000001d) occurred in the application at location 0x50945b51. Click OK to terminat the program."
Now, I when I click OK, it does go away but usually reappears some minutes later.
I understand the file relates to Windows Update in some way, however I'm not sure how to get rid of the message.
A google search wasn't very fruitful, so your help would be much appreciated.
The wuauclt.exe file is located in the c:\windows\System32 folder. In other cases, wuauclt.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm! I suggest you check just in case. click here download and run this free program, it's a bit slow but it's thorough.
