    Apparently this problem came up last month is spreading around as the
    "svchost hanging up problem".

    The thread "ntdll.dll!RtlAllocateHeap+0x18c" (of svchost), related with
    Microsoft Update, is taking over Windows XP around the globe, for about
    5 minutes, everytime ones turns on his/her computer.

    When you "disable Microsoft update" through Windows Update site, the
    problem disappears.

    You MVP guys are aware of that?


    ps: To check whether or not this is the problematic thread, use
    Process Explorer, select the svhost process and goes to
    properties->threads. And to correct it, go to "change settings" in
    Windows Update to find that disable option.

    Yeah, it was like asking a bus driver if he can drive.

    Sorry about that.
