XP not recognised by MS - anyone else getting this ??



Just went to windows update and got this

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.

You must be running a Microsoft Windows operating system in order to use Windows Update.

I also went to hotmail when Messenger told me I had mail and it said that my browser (IE6) was not necessarily compatible (I need IE4 and up) and would I like to continue anyway ?

WTF goes on ?
LOL !!

either MS has some problems or your PC has an identity crisis :D

i just went there and it seems ok
Yes, I think it has.
I just went to install XP Styles and it said that maybe my operating system was incompatible or the wrong version as well !!!

It's obviously my machine, but I wonder what. I haven't installed anything out of the ordinary that probably people on this site haven' t installed as well.

So you just keep laughing while you can, it maybe something that will affect others too.

heh that sucks,, maybe try a reinstall of xp? you using home or pro?
Sounds to me like you got your security set really high, or your firewall is doing an excellent job. Try adding www.windows.com to any whitelists you have and see what you see.
Have you rebooted yet? =) Sometimes that just makes all the difference.
Thanks Lonman, excellent pointer !! ;)

Turns out that it was Naviscope that I installed from a news item on here a week or two ago.
Got into my hidden Icons and I completely forgot about it. :eek:

I thought I'd installed it with default settings, guess I'll have to revisit that area.

Thanks again.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
