    I have a desktop and notebook running dual boot xp/linux. In the last 4 months when I try to use IE Windows Update a message comes up saying - Files required to use Microsoft Update are no longer registered or installed on your computer. Then I click on the - register or install the files for me now - it seems to install some files but when I try custom or express updates it gives me the same 'files required' message. Any help appreciated.
    Also I recently put together another computer without linux dual boot and I have no problem with updates. Yes these are legit xp's they are registered with MS. Thanks again
