had a warning message about a problem :

Description
-------------------
After you start or restart your computer, you might receive the following
error message:

Generic Host Process for Win32 Services Error

The error appears in computers with Windows XP Service Pack 2 and security
update 873333 (MS05-012) installed. Although this error message appears when
you start or restart your computer, the actual error occurs when you shut
down your computer. Because the error happens during the shutdown process,
Windows can't notify you until you start your computer again. We do not
expect this experience to harm your data or the performance of your
computer.

I went to windows update and got this message:

Thank you for your interest in Windows Update
Windows Update is the online extension of Windows that helps you get the
most out of your computer.
You must be running a Microsoft Windows operating system in order to use
Windows Update.

I may be missing the boat, but I'd find and delete the windows update folder
and windows update log.
That might make it relook at your system and remake the needed
folders/files.

Norton Internet Security( NIS) installed????
Error: "You must be running a Microsoft Windows operating system in order to
use Windows Update"

When attempting to access the Windows Update Web site you receive the
following message: Thank You -- you must be running a Microsoft windows
operating system in order to use windows update

Problem Description:
When going to the Windows Update Web site located at
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com, the page immediately redirects you to
http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/en/thanks.asp, which says "you must be
running a
Microsoft Windows operating system in order to use Windows Update." This
occurs if both a third party firewall and the built-in Windows XP firewall
are enabled at the same time.

Resolutions:
Please delete the following registry key. Be sure to export this key to a
safe location first.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings\User Agent\Post Platform
---

This may be resolved by uninstalling the third party firewall.
---

The system administrator may have made changes to your corporate
firewall/proxy that will not allow Windows Update to operate properly.
Please contact your system administrator and have them identify Windows
Update as an excluded site on the firewall/proxy.
