It shouldn't be a problem. It is Microsoft policy to allow non-genuine copies of Windows XP to receive critical updates. So if you set your windows updates to automatic they should install. You won't be able to install non-critical updates such as IE7.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
