    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?

    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.

    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.
