ok good news i got my copy of windows xp pro to do all there updates, not very easy but they work now! it took a few hours working with them and a few downloads. we had to disable the old key i think :tazz: and download a KeyupdateTool. the tool scans your files to find any probs, and it did i put this in the run box.....{regsvr32 licwmi.dll},,,,,,,, and this one too.......{regsvr32 licdll.dll} after that I could get the update tool to work it took my new key,

somewhere along the way we took out that progarm that makes you try to valadate.

so when i try to download a update that needs to be i have to go to the website there they have a 2nd option to get to the file click on it and i get a code to put into the box and download my files..... this had tobe done so when service pack 3 gets here i can download it. well thats it not the easist but it works :)
