wmv and general update probs RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been through the fore mentioned validation processes and pass with flying colors, but when I tried to update Windows Media Viewer some months ago, it quit and said I wasn't using a valid copy of Windows. It is valid, and yes it has the sticker on top of the puter to prove it. I've ignored the issue until this Sunday when the normal auto update ran in the morning, all my icons supersized to the point they won't fit on my screen. The background pic was unaffected and I was able to do a system restore to Saturday to get back in business, but now every time the computer wants to update, I have to go through the same process. I use an up to date AVG for antivirus, I have Spybot and Adaware, but now Adaware has quit updating as well. Any ideas?  Here's my diagnostic.

  • Hello whtbaron,


    When you say windows media viewer, do you mean windows media player?  If not please provide us with the exact url you are trying to download this software from.  From your diagnostic information it appears everything is working fine and your copy of Windows is genuine.  Can you please provide us with the exact error message along with any error codes you receive when trying to install the software?


    Thank you,
