    What version of Windows are you using?

    What is it telling you when you try to download windows updates? Is it possible that you are already up to date currently?

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

Tip

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?

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices

or for windows 7 click start right click on computer select properties in the left pane device manager scroll through all of your devices.


If you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver software.


If you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver

If you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it


or you might have to download them

Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours.
