Windows Update Error!!!

  [DELETED] 16:26 09 Oct 2003

i've been receiving a "svchost.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows" message when i connect to the net. I've downloaded a MS patch that seems to have stopped this message & i've run AVG & Trend Micro anti-virus programs, plus Symantec W.32.blaster removal tool but now when i try to download Critical updates, etc and hit install i get - "Windows Update Error. Windows has encounterd an error and cannot display the requested page"

Any HELP please????

The value for the CSDVersion in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows
needs to be changed to 0. If you are comfortable editing the registry, follow the instructions below.

1. Click "Start," and then click "Run."

2. In the Open box type regedit and click "OK."

3. Browse in the left frame to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows

4. In the right frame you will see the key CSDVersion. Double click this key.

5. Change the value to 0 and click "OK."

6. Restart the computer.
