2003 Server update failure

We are running 2003 server & have had problems with windows updates (ie locking up before it even gets to the MS website).

Downloaded Dial-a-fix & clicked on tools & clicked on "reinstall automatic update service"

After re-booting, it allows me to get to the MS website & find the updates required, the when you install, it locks again & need to do above again.

Another symptom is when it has locked up, I cannot get to add/remove programs in control panel. Once you "reinstall automatic update service" then add/remove programs comes up. Also in locked state, you cannot shutdown & restart server (task bar locks).

Obviously this has helped a bit, must me in right area, but anyone have any suggestions.

In locked state, all other services (sql, file server, print server) work correctly & does not impact users in any way.

Thanks, Timbo
