Update Windows XP Until 2019


If you desire to keep updating windows XP with new updates until 2019 there a new work around to that, simple create a new key entry like this Installed = dword 00000001 in the following registry path "HKEY LOCAL MACHINE - SYSTEM - WPA - PosReady" restart your machine and windows will start receiving the firsts new updates since April 2014. The trick is in making windows updates believe that you machine is running POS2009 that use XP Pro as base and is subject to updates until 2019.

Windows was not installed correctly or it was corrupted by some dubious program. You will have to reinstall it , ideally using a separate Windows 7 install disk (not the recovery one, if you can find one) and using the key from the label on the bottom.

It sounds like it is confused and has lost some of the registry entries, like we would have an index to find the files. Hopefully they are all still there.
Press F8 as it boots up, this should get you into a sub menu that allows you to use Safe Mode or Recovery. Try safe mode first as Windows will search for the "missing" files and repair the registry. If that doesn't work try Recover and follow the prompts. (That may only work under F11).
Hope that fixes it.
