    I am running windows xp pro.
    I have service pack 2
    I have windows explorer 7

    When I got this computer (from an individual) I didn't realize it was using a code that was for people who sell computers I guess....

    I installed a software (legally) that "requires a critical windows Update" to operate. Well when I downloaded windows update uopu guessed it "windows did not authenticate your version of windows" please pay $149.00 to pass go and collect your prize!!!!

    Aaarg.

    I tried locating a file on my computer in windows32 called wgalogon.dll from what I read on here it said to find it and rename it...well I did but another surprise...that file does not existing on my computer.

    Anybody know a workaround....Please help...;)
