    i dont know how you could possibly be still on Service pack one at this time lol, but i assume you are running windows XP.

    just click Start -
    Run -
    then at the top click windows update / Microsoft Update

    you should find Windows XP SP2 from the list of updates

    When you click on start at the top you should see an option that says windows updates. If not click on help and support you should be able to get to it from there.

    no point in messing around; we all know MS has a stick up their butt about running non-genuine version of windows. ^.^

    but that wouldnt make a difference to the problem that is occuring here, if his copy wasnt genuine and microsoft new it, he would no doubt get the stupid notification from microsoft.

    i have never had a genuine copy of windows as i refuse to pay stupid amounts of money for an operating system

    my copy of XP was $25 from a college...don't give me anything about it being too expensive for the convenience, or go legit with linux.

    to the original poster, i suggest getting a sp2 disc and trying to install in safe mode.

    or, just backup and reinstall windows.
