    Software distribution service 3.0 keeps reinstalling itself

    Every time I shut down my laptop, it updates the software. I looked at the
    control points and it looks like it is reinstalling software distribution
    service.

    7/8 Software Distribution service 3.0
    7/8 I had lost internet connectivity, so did a system restore
    7/9 Software Distribution service 3.0
    7/10 Software Distribution service 3.0
    7/11 Software Distribution service 3.0 (5 times that day)
    7/12 Software Distribution service 3.0 (3 times that day)
    7/14 Software Distribution service 3.0 (3 times that day)

    dittos!

    I have the same problem. There seems to be a conflict with additional firewalls. I am using ZoneAlarm. ZA offers a patch, but I still have not been able to get it to work right.

    I am also using zone alarm. I submitted a query to their forum. Meanwhile,
    I can get free McAffee with my isp, so I might just switch to that.

    I uninstalled zone alarm and installed McAffee, and it still keeps
    happening.

    Please, use only 1 firewall on you computer & as many spyware/malware
    removers as you want.
