I am using Windows XP pro and think I may have corrupted it, If I re-install
windows will I lose my other programs and data that i have stored on my PC?

Hi

What particular problem(s) are you having with WU - any error messages? A
'Repair' install of XP may not be needed.

Hi,

The problem is not on the computer I am currently using but my daughter's
computer

I don't get any error messages, when I try to use system update I get the
message undefined and it won't look for any required updates, if i download
them manually it will not allow me to install them, I am using a legitimate
version of Windows XP Pro.

Regards,
John
