    What is the best way to let MicroSoft help me fix the WGA Notification
    problem I have. I've tried all the stuff I've seen discussed here, and it

    No. Didn't work. It's too bad because I tried it on 2 other computers and
    it worked fine. The one that won't update is also the one that won't run
