Nowadays, almost all the things is possible. I can make your WinXP genuine forever.You can download IE7, media player11 and turn ON your automatic updates.I have the patch for that.Ask me how.

What you want to make sure is you download only critical updates, and leave certain ones out. These include version updates for Windows Media Player, and the Windows Genuine Advantage validation/notification tools. What I do is turn on automatic updates, use the custom option the first time around, and uncheck these items. There should also be an option to make sure these particular items do not show up again, saving you the trouble in the future. An easier way to do this, and to update manually without waiting for automatic updates, is to use Mozilla Firefox 0.9.3, Netscape 4.0, Mozilla Firebird 0.7, Opera 5, or K-Meleon 0.9 at http://windizupdate.com/ Check it out; it might make your mouth water. I'm quite familiar with your issue. I use Windows XP Pro Corporate, and I didn't get it at work. ;)

BTW, the version numbers you see here are the oldest versions supported. The newer ones work, too. Just about everything (except Internet Explorer) works here, including Windows NT4 and 95 (M$ no longer supports them)!!! ;)

Mee too I have encountered same problem too coz I do used pirated windows XP and then when I updated to IE 7 validation error come out every moment I opened my computer. The solution is we must buy the original windows xp that cost more than 7,000 pesos or almost $130 for that we can upgraded the IE to 7 or higher.

All we can do is just disable the autoupdates and forgot to think about media player & IE explorar updates so we can use the windows for longtime without any interruption ...........

You live by the sword then you die by the sword. Pirated versions of computer ware come with great risks in most cases. You should do as the technician told you and better yet, rid your computer of the pirated stuff and put in the real deal from the maker. They are tested and have no interest in messing up their customers computers. It baffles me that people with the priveledge of owing a computer do not take care to have it run the best they can for easier and cheaper computing. Good luck in this matter.
