    If you have a counterfeit windows,you will know it, it will NOT cause an update error, it will say you can not download because of it being
    counterfeit. Thousands of people that have windows cracked get updates. At least the ones that know what there doing.
    When you run update and it fails,there is an error code.You need to
    post it. There are a lot of reasons why sp2 wont install.

    RT click on my computer, click properties,look for windows activation, if it say windows is activated, then its activated.

If your copy of Windows isn't properly licensed then you will get an error when trying to download that will say something about your copy of Windows isn't genuine. If that is the case, you may need to check to see if your computer has a valid Windows license. If you want to check to see if your copy of Windows is Genuine, you can use this program to check it.

For downloading any software it shows an error message it will harm your computer..


> it will harm your computer

Did it report this, or _MAY_ harm your computer?

It's up to you to decide whether to "trust" the source from where you're downloading. For example, if you accessed 'www.adobe.com' and tried to download Adobe Reader 9.3,
then you can "trust" that the downloaded file will _NOT_ harm your computer.
