Windows Update Fix

By | December 15, 2006

Of recent, Windows Update has been crashing the svchost.exe causing my network drives to show up as disconnected in windows explorer. This is causing many of my applications to fail. The error I was receiving was:

Faulting application svchost.exe, version 5.1.2600.2180, faulting module msi.dll, version 3.1.4000.2435, fault address 0x00012780.

I have created a simple batch file to fix this error as opposed to doing this manually.
