Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool KB892130

WAKE UP MICROSOFT!! This download seems to have caused all kinds of problems
to a whole bunch of people.

I can no longer get updates. Windows Update insists that this tool must be
downloaded every time I access it. When I click on it, Windows Update
confirms that the size of the download is 0Mb - that the tool has already
been downloaded and is ready to install. When I click on 'Download' to
install it, the installation process fails (Updates were unable to be
successfully installed). I'm directed to 'Update History' to establish to
cause of the problem, but the download doesn't appear there. I've restarted
my machine / turned off Norton Antivirus / turned off all my anti-spyware
software / accessed Windows Update and downloaded again - all to no avail.

CAN WE HAVE A PERMANENT SOLUTION PLEASE!!!!

Will do so.

As a matter of interest, who added the word 'rudely' below?

RE: Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool KB892130

I found a lot of help here
http://www.helpwithwindows.com/techf...up-errors.html
I haven't been able to use the Windows Update site since installing SP2 on
my XP computer but could at least find out which updates I needed, then
search and install them individually. With this new development of the
"Genunine Validation Tool" I couldn't even find that to download. Luckily,
thanks to the above link, I found the Windows Catalog site where you can get
your downloads. Just go here

http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.co...en/default.asp
and you can stop tearing your hair out!

Nope. This error isn't listed there.

KB892130 doesn't come up there either.

And yes, I'm in the exact same boat. KB892130 is downloaded but cannot
install, and no other updates can be performed until KB892130 is installed.

true, KB892130 is not listed here but you can still find and download your
updates at the Windows Catalog Update site
http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.co...en/default.asp .

If you want to validate your copy of Windows you can do that here
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/h...s/default.mspx
but I don't think you have to in order to use the Windows Update Catalog site.

Re: Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool KB892130

Do you really work for microsoft or is your signature line a joke? Some of
your comments are unreal and snotty beyond comprehension. Hard to imagine
them letting you stay on the job. Pls let me know.

Does anyone else know if she/he/it works for microsoft? Hard to believe.
