Windows Update not working with WinXP

By megasurfer ·
Customer has computer with WinXP Pro. When you try to use Windows Update, it downloads the updates, starts to install them, then download window closes and Win Update page says updates were not installes. I tried deleting the tmp files in the WUtempfolder, and renaming the Windows Update folder, but it still would not work. Any suggestions?

possible hacked version of WinXp Pro. Windows updates are blocked with the serial starting with FCKGW.

well like the perosn said before me..it could be a hacked version..very likely, but i have also seen a lot of them that have that one and let u download the updates, these ones that work block microsoft from seeing them getting or downloading patches and updates..try reinstalling the operating system..i had a similar situation with home edition and after that it worked..if not ask the user for the cdkey so u can see if it is a hacked version..if not a hacked version..contact microsoft..they will probably help u the most

As was previously said could be a hacked version. But I also had a similar problem and installed the updates in safe mode. You will have to know the file name and where they downloaded too but should be in the WUtemp directory. Try the safe mode andif that doesnt work it is probably hacked. Let me know how you make out. Hope that helps a bit.
