    You need to post your problem so we can help you. For example, are you having a problem with Blizzard game? Which game? What doesn't work? Do you get an error message? Have you always had the problem or did the Blizzard product work for a while?

No your not.Go to microsoft web site or use the built in Windows Update on your computer.If you haven't downloaded the update tool it will ask you to install it.After it installs the update tool, run it.Pick the updates you need lnstall them some will require you to restart.Later check the automatic update feature to check for updates.Other updates will be from the manufacturer or your PC,check for their updates.Software from their sites.This is not hard.If I were you I would buy a general book on XP you can learn easy steps to keep your PC up to date and won't have to ask anyone (except good luck

Usually the drivers are a self installing process once you have determined which driver is in need of updates. If you plan on updating them all then this is ok and very simple to do.

Enter the neccessary info in the link below. It will give you a list of drivers based off your serial number. Look at the dates and if theya re recent or since you have purchased your pc then download them and install. They will automatically extract and install then reboot if asked:

Mobile armory temporarily unavailable has been for 2 days paying for service i cannot use

Blizzard's mobile armory is in a rampant updating process currently to accommodate to their soon to be released patch 4.1. If you're referring to the Auction House Remote that Blizzard charges for their app, you should try uninstalling and then reinstalling the app when that happens, if not try checking for updates on the Appstore regarding the Mobile WoW Armory.
Hope we could help!

The World of Warcraft, the patches, and the repair tool

First make sure all of your drivers are up to date. Video, Audio, etc. You also want to make sure you have plenty of room on your hard drive. I generally try to keep 25% of mine open for the purpose of updating, patching, etc. If you don't have any idea how much space you have right click on your c: drive and click properties. You can also access the disk clean-up utilities from here. Clear out all of your caches and other temp files using disk clean-up. Also, uf you're taking the time anyway, you might as well defragment you hard drive. Depending on the size of your main HD it could be an hour or so. Start the process and play a console game while it slowly clicks through the info and reorganizes. Make sure you restart each time you make a big change like drivers or defrag. You can use system restore points to undo any problems that may arise.

Just a thought...did you restart when you uninstall WoW? Or did you recently do a big update like XP SP3? These happy little updates sometimes make other things unhappy in their quest to improve functionality and security. or if you uninstalled a big program or big game, it may have deleted a shared .dll that WoW doesn't install.

Your best bet is to find out what the 'something' is that couldn't be accessed and trouble shot that around the Blizzard utility. The first paragraph is just general house cleaning for your computer.

Hope this all helps.
