What browser are you using? Updates for XP and older ONLY work with Internet Explorer! at least as far as i know i could be wrong but I wouldn't use any other browser for windows updates anyways.
Yes i have tried internet explorer 9 the latest version, and thats where it tells me to do all this stuff to make windows update which doesnt help. Do you know how to just change my display adapter from RAGE to something newer, such as Radeon or Fire Pro??
