Interesting. With the registry hack referenced in the original article, I was able to receive three additional XP updates for May. I wonder how long MS will allow this before they “break it”? Ironically, one of these updates fixed a long time graphical issue I’ve had with IE 8.
I would recommend a full disk image backup before receiving any of these updates!!!
There have been a number of problems in the past with official updates from MS for all versions of Windows. This registry hack just allows you to install updates that have not been tested on XP, and is therefor much more likely to cause problems.
Anyone foolish enough to use this should at least make certain that they can recover their system after one of these updates makes XP totally unusable.
