Re: Updates for Microsoft XP does not download to...

Is your version of microsoft windows genuine.. ??

if it is here is what you need to do

1.) click start then all programs / accessories
2.) Click system tools, system restore.
3.) restore to a previous date about 2 to 3 weeks back..
4.) restart the system and now update windows..

If its a fresh install you have, something might have been corrupted when installing windows xp. You may need to format and reinstall again..

Another problem is a virus or trojan horse*spyware"..

Download avg free anti virus install and update then run it
Download Super anit spyware and install it as well..

If that fails let me know and there are alternative soultions

I have a Gateway computer desktop I rebooted it to factory settings running service pack 2 Windows XP no computer will not update from Windows Update site or download anything

Since April 2014 Microsoft ended support for Windows XP and that means no more updates for Windows.
You still can get from Microsoft's websites some of the updates and pacthes but you should look for specific files. As there are about 150 updates, I have way to help you giving the listing and anyway it would be some enless job to do. Maybe your best option should be to get Windows XP SP3 with all latest updates at some forum.
Anyway, keeping legal, if you reinstalled XP SP2 you should download and install SP3
Windows XP Service Pack 3 Network Installation Package for IT...

Windows Update still migth be usefult to get updates for MS Office 2007 and upwards, Windows Defender, etc..

You should forget about using Internet Explorer 8, it is obsolete by now and no way to update it. IE9 won't run on XP. So, far best option is Firefox

What Does It Mean When Support for My Operating System Ends?

Microsoft Support for Windows Vista (with no service packs installed) ended on April 13, 2010, while support for Windows XP (without Service Pack 3 installed) ended on July 13, 2010. Windows 2000 support ended on July 13, 2010 as well.
There is no Service Pack 3 for the 64-bit version of Windows XP. If you're running the 64-bit version of Windows XP with SP2, you have the latest service pack and will continue to be eligible for support and receive updates until April 8, 2014.
If you are still running a version of Windows where support has ended, it means that version of Windows will no longer receive any updates from the Windows Update or Microsoft Update site. These updates are generally provided for security reasons to help protect the PC from harmful viruses, spyware, malware, and other malicious software. Windows Update also provides new drivers for your hardware that can improve the reliability of Windows.
Hackers love to take a security vulnerability in Windows and exploit it to their advantage. So, if a vulnerability is found in Windows XP or Windows Vista and you are not running the latest service pack, you will not be protected and will be at risk.

How Can I Tell What Service Pack is Installed?
Follow these steps to discover what Service Pack is installed:
1) Click on the Start Button
2) Right-click on either My Computer or Computer (depending on your Windows version)
3) Click on Properties
On this window, it should tell you which version of Windows along with which service pack is installed). It should also tell you whether you are running a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows.

Where can I download the latest Service Pack for Windows?

For Windows XP Service Pack 3 info, click below :-

For Windows XP Service Pack 3 download, click below :-

For Windows Vista, click on the following link to download Service Pack 2

I installed Windows XP and now my Movie Maker doesn't work anymore! How can I resolve this? Movie make is so easy to use. I miss it. Thanks

Here's the Microsoft Page for using Movie Maker on XP,

and here's the Download Site for Movie Maker XP,

It's installed through Windows Update normally so you should just install every Windows XP Update available. Go to the Start Button>All Programs> Windows Update and click on it. Follow all the prompts and say yes or ok to everything.

Good Luck

Window xp

A pirated windows cannot be made genuine in any way. There are patches that just disable the genuine windows check, but the windows still wont be genuine, and you wont be able to download certain updates from Microsoft.

Regarding performance there is no difference between a genuine windows and non genuine one. However non genuine windows does not download all updates, this can cause troubles when a software need the updates.

Always better using genuine Windows.
