When trying to update my computer, I recieved this error message (subject).\nI have had this OS (pre-installed through Dell). Went to Update site Monthly\n(or bi-weekly), whenever I feel froggie to do so. I thought I could update\nmy computer recently but came across this error message.\n\nIt stated that "Files required to use Windows Update are no longer\nregistered or installed on your computer. To continue"\n....and then gave me an option to "Register or reinstall the files for me now\n(Recommended)"\n.... or Read more about the issue.\n\nI have Windows XP (home) with SP2 and all of the updates (definately through\nNovember 2005, if not December). I am just unsure how this message can come\nup and tell me this when I have all of the updates required and I have been\nloyal in updating. Does anyone know what is going on here?
