    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
