    Windows Genuine Advantage...OK?

    The automatic updater suggests that I install Windows Genuine Advantage v 1.2. Is it completely safe to install this?

    I have a legal version of Windows (XP) on my computer, but I don't want any future hassles from Microsoft due to errors on their part.

    More and more updates can only be downloaded if you validate your copy of XP. So long as you have a legal copy go ahead and install.

    NOTE: security fixes can always be downloaded if you use automatic updates.
