My Windows XP won't let me do Microsoft Windows updates
Posted 13 December 2012 - 12:09 PM
and the error message that came up was "The website has encountered a problem and cannot display the page you are trying to view. The options provided below might help you solve the problem."
Also every once and awhile I'll get a pop up message saying HP Update is not installed on this computer and today I got a blue screen error that caused my computer to restart.
Ran security essentials and it didn't pick up any viruses. I'll run Malawarebytes in a bit.
I found this on another website "As of July 13, 2010, Microsoft stopped supporting Windows XP. This means that they will no longer be writing updates for this operating system." Could this be why the system won't update?

There were 7 (I think) updates released this week for XP systems - All of mine installed and then I rebooted -
I must assume that you have XP Service Pack 3 installed, as this is required - When were your last M/soft Updates installed ??
Thank You -

The Microsoft Support Lifecycle website states that Windows XP will be support till 08/04/14. To reiterate noknojon's post, you must have Service Pack 3 in order to get updates through the lifecycle.
