Problem with Microsoft and Windows Updates on Windows XP SP2
When I'm trying to update my PC (running on Windows XP SP2), I end up seeing
the message below on my browser:
-----------------------------------------------

only.
To find updates for Microsoft products that are designed for Macintosh
operating systems, please visit http://www.microsoft.com/mac/.
-----------------------------------------------
Is there someone who can help me get through with this problem?
Thanks...

Eltor I too had the same problem. Please see my post below from January 6,
