I go to update XP,it says I am not registered to update and asks me to to reg which I do,it say 100%,I then go to update having registered,only to be told I am not registered,I seem to be in a catch 22 situation.
If perchance you have the answer I would love to hear it.Thanks.

You mean validation, not registration?

Registration isnt compulsory, but you have to validate your version of XP before u check for updates on the windowsupdate site (if u havent yet).

Thats if you're talking about the windowsupdate site.

BUT once it validates your version of XP, it shouldnt have to validate again.

No speedy,I mean registration.
I noted that I had not had an update for a while.
So went to updates,it said look for updates,clicked on express updates,it said I was no longer Files required to use Windows Update are no longer registered or installed on your computer. To continue I must register,which I did 100% it said,so I tried again but all it said is a repeat of the above..

It looks like a few people have been getting this prob. You're not alone!

Try this

Start > Run > regsvr32 wuapi.dll
Start > Run > regsvr32 wups.dll
Start > Run > regsvr32 wuaueng.dll
Start > Run > regsvr32 wucltui.dll
Start > Run > regsvr32 atl.dll
Start > Run > regsvr32 MSXML3.dll

Restart the computer, and then try Windows Update site again

I see what you meant by validation Speedy,why that would be the case is a mystery,seeing as how I have not needed b4.
Thanks pal,you may now take the rest of the day off,on full pay. :thumbs:

So, I take it u can now do something :thumbs:

Umm validation wasnt compulsory/mandatory, up until 3-4 weeks ago now.

Because of pirated versions of XP.

So, you're not the only one who will get it. Everyone using XP will have to go thru the same thing. And so will people, who use Windows 2000 soon.
