You have to go to Add/Remove programs, make sure that the show update box is check of at the top and look for Windows Update Hotfix KB918118. Remove that and you'll be all set.

Why would you do that instead of fixing the problem?

>Well do you know of a way to fix it?

As I wrote in the first reply to this thread I would go to Google and search on the suggested terms (or search this forum).
The search should turn up this fix from Autodesk.
In addition it might be a good time to update all Service Packs.

>Had no problems since then.

You must have turned off Windows Automatic Updates as well or the problem will return on you machine. The Autodesk Hotfix takes care of the problem.
