After running the necessary solution patches recomended by PSI I always end up with the same 8 threats which need the Microsoft patch. The problem is I use an unregistered XP OS in this computer. I do plan on getting a registered version when I can afford it but in the mean time does anyone know if the patch from MS will work with an unregistered XP OS, corrupt what I do have, or is there any other way to download the solution patches?

Automatic Update should work for security patches, but you will be unable to access the update websites.
