    Windows update keeps telling me that I need to register some files and after
    in "installs" them, it checks for the latest version of the windows update
    software and then tells me that I need to register the files again. This is
    in a loop with no way out.

    I tried registering some files by hand using the run command and the
    instructions provided. They appear to be successful but I still cannot run
    windows update.

    I am on XPpro SP1.

    You can also download critical updates here

    You may have noticed from this group and others that Windows Update
    (WGA) has turned into a total disaster. I have had trouble with one
    machine out of 7 guess I got lucky, I did a repair install on it to
    fix it but it was SP2 not SP1 although that should not make any
    difference. Point is time is money and I don't appreciate having
    either of mine wasted further by yet another ill thought through M$
    cock up.

    If the people posting here are having trouble with the new WGA the
    rest of the world must be in very deep trouble. M$ had better get this
    sorted pretty quick, I doubt anybody with unlicensed copies of Windows
    are much surprised but the millions of legit users are being caused a
    lot of grief.

    Conversion to Mac or Linux is looking more and more cost effective
