Exclamation svchost error during windows update

everytime i go to windows update and while it checks for updates, i get an svchost error. my system then becomes unresponsive. i can move the mouse, can go to the start menu but i can't open any programs or shutdown/restart. it's like it's stuck or something. (ran virus scanner and no virus/spyware found)

Default Re: svchost error during windows update

Next time this happens, open task manager and see how many iexplore.exe processes are running. If you have more than one, kill all but one.
Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.
