Does it have service pack 3 installed ?
If not you need to download it manually then you will receive automatic updates until the well last update of Windows XP.

williamp, i am using windows xpsp3 and i don't have the regkey that you mentioned on my computer.. i think you should just forget about that regkey..
go into windows "services" and make sure that the "automatic updates" service and the "background intelligent transfer service" are enabled.. both of those "services" have to be enabled in order for windows automatic updates to work, and for being able to use the "microsoft update" website to install windows updates..
p.s. now that i see that you are installing "win xpsp3" on the computer, i assume that you will have to install a lot of additional windows updates, after that..

Sorry, I used shorthand. It is called background intelligent transfer service. See post #6 by redwolfe_98.
