My computer froze up 4 days ago. Prior to this everything was running great. I have the whole Norton Security package (antivirus, firewall yadayada ) all of a sudden that morning something was wierd. It was acting like there was a virus. Meaning super slow, if you close a window instead of it just disappearing as normal, it would start from the top and disappear line by line from the top of the image and just take like 5 seconds to close that window. If I restart the computer it takes super long to get going. After running anitivirus checks and spyware checks and they all came back clean i didnt know what else to do. I even went and downloaded the AVG antivirus to see if it would pick up something Norton is missing. But still the same thing. So I tried system restore and I noticed that morning that my computer started nutting up, I had something called Software Distribution service 2.0 added on my computer - which I dont know what it is or install it myself. I think it it part of an update from Microsoft. So I tried to restore before that got on my computer, but now my system restore wont work. I have tried to the very earliest possble date that it will allow and still nothing. Can someone please help. I am renovating a house and my wife is killing me about getting this fixed so she can look at countertops to order and other crap. Thanks

Looks like a lot of people are having problems with Software Distribution Service 2.0.
Seems to be something that was installed with a MS Automatic Update.

A couple of post I found on other forums discussing it:

A lot of hits on Google (49,200,000):
Software Distribution service 2.0

Nobody seems to have a solution (in the few threads i read).

Have you tried booting to Safe Mode, and selecting Last Known Good Configuration?
