    I have a problem with WSUS 3.0 loaded on an IBM eServer x3500 running Win2003
    It was up and running happily but has stopped working. Now when I try to
    load the MMC console for WSUS the snap-in tries to load for a while and then
    bombs out with the error:

    End Snap-in
    The snap-in is not responding

    Anybody got any ideas I can try? Mine ran out after rebooting the server and
    coming up with nil on a google search :)

  2. Delete the wsus.msc file and then restart the WSUS Administration Console.

    The wsus.msc file is located in:
    %userprofile%\Application Data\Microsoft\MMC

    By repairing the .Net Framework install, the snapins finally worked properly.
