dllhost.exe max's out processor with Windows Update Server running

Trying to get WUS running on 2000 Server with SP4 installed.

Machine keeps locking up with the above file taking all the processor power.

The machine is a totally clean install with nothing else running except 2k server and this.

Any ideas?

Are you running any anti-virus software?  Your symptoms are suggestive of the welchia worm.

NO unfortuantely this was not caused by lack of virus software.

We never actually resolved this issue and unfortunately the only solution was a full reinstallation of the O/S. Tried all the usual adaware / spy bot and nav angles to no avail.

hewtigg how do i close this i followed the options link but maybe i am missing something?
