    Windows Update doesn't work (WinXP Pro SP2)

    I'm running WinXP Pro SP2 and I have my security settings set to Download But Let Me Choose When To Install. I have not had any notifications in a long time, and I hear that MS posted a bunch of updates recently. Is this because I refuse to download the Windows Genuine Advantage checker? What's going on here?
