I am running a Dell 3000 which I re-fomatted with sp3 for my cousin which was infected. I deleted the partition and installed a fresh copy of xp. I have been trying to do the Windows updates and the application hangs. I go to task mgr>processes and it shows the 100% usage on svchost.exe. I have ended it 5 times and it keeps coming back. I ran process explorer and it shows process id 3200- generic host process for windows 32 services.
I think windows update is the problem but am not sure. I would appreciate any suggestions
