I installed Windows XP Professional with SP3 on an old Core 2 Duo computer. Successfully activated it using my DreamSpark Product Key. However, upon trying to update (Windows Update), I am greeted with an error page on the Windows Update v6 website. Downloaded windowsupdateagent30-x86.exe from Windows Update website and installed as C:\windowsupdateagent30-x86 /wuforce. Downloaded and installed Internet Explorer 8 for Windows XP. This time, on the Windows Update website, I am getting updates. But it takes a god-damn half-an-hour of scanning to check for the latest updates for my computer. This is an awful lot of time! I remember the last time I used Windows XP, about an year ago, updating was so easy and quick. I wonder what's wrong with it now?! Is Microsoft intentionally doing this or what?
