    had the same deal on my hooky copy. should last for ever, but their are some things you cant down load off microsoft. I got so fed up of this that i brought a real copy of XP that had a voucher for a vista premium upgrade. The XP cost me £50.00 and the vista upgrade cost £40.00. so a copy of Vista premium has cost £90.00 instead of £150.00...Bargain

    MS GWA has been known to produce false postives ie claiming ACTUAL geniune versions of XP arent geniune. SO before assuming someone is running a pirated version of XP/Vista whatever, try asking.

    Oh yea, there's other sites out there you can get MS patches,security updates from besides MicrosoftUpdate site. I have a legit OEM version of XP x64 and I refuse to use the real MSUpdate site since its damned SLOOOWW and tries to override my selections of what updates I want to install
