    I followed the instructions from TweakTown's site on how to install XP SP-1 but whenever I try to change my CD Key using that program, it says that i have mistyped the new CD Key. This happens at the Window where I have to type my new CD key. I have installed all the updates from the Windows Update site except the XP SP-1 and was wandering if that could be the problem... Can anyone please help me out...:scream:

    i,ve also installed all the updates. however, after installing sp 1, all the other updates vanished from the add/remove programs. strange, but never mind, it works. i am also using xp pro, dont know if that makes a difference.

    They vanished because all of those hot fixes are incorporated into the service pack already.

    Have you tried changing the key by doing a "windows update" installation? I think its called dynamic installation or something of the sort. Just pop in the cd from the desktop........choose windows update as the option........when it prompts you for a key, just put in the new one and continue with the update. This will change your key too.
