    Hello there,

    Okay, let me start you off from saying that i have NOT got a genuin Microsoft windows and i, for some unknown reason, enabled Updates for my windows. I was told not to do this because it's not genuin and there is no need. I did this and i installed certain things and now i am unable to access msn, see pictures in Picture Manager, Play online games such as Lord Of The Rings Online. I believe i installed updates that have overlapped what i originally had and... well lets put it this way... currupted it?

    So i got help from a friend and he gave me a programme that would change my microsoft windows code to a different one automatically which would then make my windows Genuin. I did this and i installed the Genuin Notification programme from the updates to see if it was now genuin or not, it worked and it's now genuin.

    Still had problems, so i uninstalled .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 from add and remove programmes, when i did this, this got rid of other microsoft programmes such as what would be shown with .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 in the add and remove programmes.

    I went to the Microsoft Update site and installed .NET Framework 2.0 still problems so i thought, lets look at another computer in the house and see what its got, so i looked and it showed .NET Framework 1.1 SP1. So i installed that, after a while an update arrived to install the Hotfix, or what ever it is. I still have a problem. I can access internet, but cannot access msn, games, pictures, videos, Limewire.

    Any advice? Do i have to reinstall windows?

    Thankyou.
