    I have 12 critical updates (one of which will fix this gay CWS trojan i keep getting). Everytime I try to get them from MS I get a "this software has not passed windows xp logo testing, it will not be installed" message.

    Any possible reason for this?

    Yes. The trojan will not let you update- you have to get rid of it first. I believe there is a program called CWShredder(?) that will take care of that for you. Then your updates should go smoothly.
