Thread: Unable To Access Windows Update

  1. #1
    i tried axxessing rhe windows update site to get the latest updates, but i received a message saying

    "Thank you for your interest in Windows Update
    Windows Update is the Online extension of Windows that helps you get the most out of your computer.
    You must be running a Microsoft Windows operating system in order to use Windows Update."

    I am not sure if i made any changes accidentally but it is kinda strange that this just popped up on my screen.

    i'm running win xp pro

    Have you had difficulty in the past getting to the site?

    AFAIK, if they detect anything dodgy with your OS you get referred to the MS Antipiracy Group, you don't get a message such as yours.

    Have you tried more than once?

    Perhaps they were just busy or something.
    I just dropped in and everything seemed fine on their end.

    Do you get as far as "scanning for updates" before the message appears, or are you cut off before?
