Re-install MS Hotfixes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings,

    I’m trying to reinstall the Microsoft Hotfixes that my Belarc Advisor indicates that I need. By clicking on the “Hotfix” # I go to MS Download Center pertaining to the “Hotfix” and select CONTINUE and it takes me to “Genuine Windows Validation” and then I select “CONTINUE”.  After this I’m suppose to get a validation Code.

    When I select CONTINUE a dialog box comes up that reads “This version of Windows Genuine A validation tool is no longer supported . Please download the newest version and ensure that your system clock is accurate.

    My sys. Clock is accurate and I know that my Windows XP is genuine. I looked for the newer version at the MS Download Center but can’t locate one. Please help.

    Thank you your cooperation on this matter in advance.
