Windows Update

#1
Windows Update was fine a couple of days ago - use to access it through aol browser. Now I get this message through the aol browser:
Thank you for your interest in Windows Update

Windows Update is the online extension of Windows that helps you get the most out of your computer.

The latest version of Windows Update is only available on computers that are running Microsoft Windows 2000 or Windows XP.

If I try to access through internet explorer or msn explorer, it scans but stops at 75% and freezes the browser

Need help


Many thanks for your help

can you try downloading the items seperately using a download assisting program like GetRight 4.5D or something better and download it with that....even if the site doesn't allow resumes it might be more stable as DLing through explorer popups sux?

Under MS's new anti-piracy policy, Windows Update access can be blocked to computers using the FCKGW illegal corporate key. If you are using the "Devils0wn" warez edition of XP with the FCKGW... you cannot access Windows Update under MS's new anti-warez precautions.

Sticking to XP-erience.org's anti-warez policy, we will not help you crack or bypass these anti-piracy measures. Go out and buy a copy of XP

Solved

It's working again! Had to re-install Norton Cleansweep and also installed all the new ATI stuff and funny enough, it's working again.

If someone can upgrade to SP1 fully, (please SAVE your old files because to update to SP1 RTM FINAL you will need to uninstall SP1 beta) then they get the right system32 files for the update engine.

HOWEVER while MS was playing with the update board they came up with a new "2nd certificate" dated around 5/23 as opposed to 3/21.

What is sent to the update board is your Product Key and WPA number.

I do ALOT of clean installing and have my WPA safely kept.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
