this is getting more and more fustrating, one day this randomly occured that i could no longer get updates for XP, something that i paid for. Y is this and what might be causing this, i'm worried that i'm no longer getting the critical updates that i need to stay safe! Very curious y it might be doing this for an OS that is ligit. And just today well about 10 minutes ago it said that i wasn't passing the windows genuin tool which really confused me.
Thanx

Hi james_8970...

Download and run this Microsoft Validation Diagnostics tool on the machine and then try the updates again.

You might have to call Microsoft to straighten this one out. :blink:

They're usually pretty good about helping with this issue, though... :whistling:
