Hello guys, I'm having major headaches installing the SP2 update onto my XP machine. The update has been downloaded correctly. Each time I try to install the update I get an error message that says that my unique Windows key could not be verified and the update could not be finished. I then cancel the update, but a reminder screen pops up every so often reminding me that I have updates ready to be installed. I have two questions. Why is the error message appearing? And secondly, how can I completely cancel the install so that the 'new downloads ready to be installed' does not pop up every ten minutes?

Thanks guys

Well, the message about the unique key is due to the fact that the SP2 installation process can't verify you have a legal copy of XP.

I'm also inclined to believe that's the problem.:rolleyes:
