    I've been trying to install the latest critical updates from Microsoft for the past month and everytime I keep getting the same error. After I let autoupdate detect and install what I need, the computer needs to reboot to complete the installation. When I reboot, the computer gets as far as the Win XP pro logo, just before the logon screen comes up, a blue screen appears with the following error message: "autochk program not found - skipping autocheck" After a few minutes the computer reboots and goes through the same cycle. The only way for me to actually get into windows is either through safe mode, or to pick the last configuration that worked option. After I get insto Windows, I uninstall the new updates and everything is fine again. I've tried to copy the check disk file from my XP CD into the system 32 directory, but that still didn't fix the problem. I think I've narrowed my problem to one of the following updates:

    Does anyone have any ideas as to how to fix the problem?

    By the way I'm running XP Pro with all updates prior to the ones that came out in the last month.
    The error message appeared exactly as I wrote it, including the misspelled "autochk".
