    I have another problem with Windows Update.
    I use XP PRO and i get this error :

    New Windows Update Software Required

    The Windows Update site has been updated. To update your version of the software and begin using Windows Update, click Update Now.

    And i have an " update now" button, i push it 200 times and nothing happens

    is the cd-key that you're using the one that starts with FCK..?? If so you cannot update your XP anymore, since M$ has banned that serial. For further info goin here /

    It's not just the key. Run regwiz /r (start>run) OFFLINE and fill in whatever info you wish. When it comes to the inventory of your machine click NO for NOT sending it to MS. Click cancel.

    You now should have a NEW WPA which is imperitive.
    Those who do a clean install need not do this with a new key.

    Didnt help.. When i got to the part that asked about inventory, I clicked no, then hit cancel. Pops up another box, says blah blah u canceled registration wizard. All i could do was hit Finish... Got online, live update still dont work.

    I made a new cdkey, put that in. then did the regwiz /r like you said. no go.

    Did I do something wrong?
  9. Information on message on Windows Update web site.

    Hi All,

    What I've heard (straight from the Windows Update Queue, I'm currently doing Windows XP support here in NS, Canada), that this is a problem with the actual web site, they were looking at having it fixed by thursday or friday of last week, but now it seems like it may be a bit longer :(

    Funny thing is if you do a clean install of Windows XP with a new key, it works fine... Sooooo, umm ya...
