I use WinXP but when i try to load and install a program from the Internet, it tells me that it is a pirated edition and will not let me load it. can anyone tell me whether it is a problem of WinXP or an error from the site where i download.

i would assume most likely this guy had a friend fix his computer at one point and loaded a pirated copy of winXP on it.

moonstruck you don't need any winXP updates unless you have an immediate need for it. for me the updates did as much damage to my machine as a virus. don't fix if it aint broke.

it doesn't seem like you intentionally pirated this software. and micorsoft will not be coming to your home so i would not worry
