:( No key code, no Update ! How do I change

Recommended Posts

treadingwater    0

...I had my Windows XP key code.................... Then I lost it. So........ I downloaded something from Kazaa (Lite!!!!) and used the first one that worked. It got me through the windows setup but now I can't do any of the criticul updates from Windows Update since it detects my key to be invalid. How can I change the key without reinstalling windows? Thanks for reading.

T.W.

Microsoft provides a method of changing keys (you find it). Of course you must change it with a legitamitely obtained one. :rolleyes:

From the website: "Remember, AutoPatcher XP requires you have SP1 or SP1a already installed."

Ah, I should be so lucky, heh heh. Thanks though.
