Do we have a fix yet for the GOOFUP called Windows Genuine Advantage?

    I have spent a number of hours trying various methods to "fix" my
    computer so I can get downloads to update XP. I'm to the point where
    I'll have to charge Microsoft for my time if I spend any more of it on
    this futile adventure.

    So I sit here, exposed and unpatched, waiting for Microsoft to work
    the kinks out of its Windows Genuine Advantage boondoggle. Has it
    been repaired? Is there a fix for it yet? (A simple download fix --
    not one that requires me to pursue a Ph.D. in computer science)?

    Let me know when there is! Thanks.

    Yes, there is a fix.

    It is called "Buy a legitimate copy of Windows XP".

    How do you know it is not a legitimate copy that he paid for?
    There are major problems with WGA. WGA is causing problems for
    legit installs and also authorizing pirated version. As I have seen
    posted in these newsgroups
