Hi,

First of all, I'm not sure this is suppose to be in this section, might have to repost this in the network or internet section or something, but here goes:

For any microsoft related updates, it never gets connected (seems to be). Like when I try to do windows update, it stays at the searching for components needed to be updated stage and never gets the search done if it ever started. I also tried windows defender update, it never gets updated. The same thing with when I try to update IE with a manual download, it gets stuck at the stage where u connect to microsoft to get the stuff downloaded during installation (so not the downloading installation file part). I'm not sure if this is caused by their server maintenance or not, if so, just consider this as another dumb question lol. Thanks for all the help.

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately, this doesn't solve my problem. THe windows update log doesn't show any error at all. What I just noticed is that the svchost.exe process is taking 50% of the CPU usage when I try to update anything from microsoft.

I guess the problem is snmp.exe is missing? Where would I get this file? Should I just google it?

Nvm this, from what I read, the SNMP service isn't installed with any default windows installations. So, how was I able to update fine before?

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD

Windows File Protection will show an on screen blue progress bar which will simply disappear when the scan is complete, reboot when it does

If you do not have an XP CD you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 XP CD


snmp.exe is a network process which comes bundled with Microsoft Windows Operating System. This process is related with LAN (local area networking) and allows for the configuration of LAN infrastructure components. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.
