    Oh dear it sounds like you've downloded the microsoft update which looks to see if your running a dodgy unlicenced copy of windows.

    Try removing it from the control panel add remove programs,you may will need to tick the box to see the windows updates.

    if your copy of windows is not genuine you cant install v 11 or the new internet explorer either

    you have to get rid of Microsoft Genuine Advantage... I know that there is guides for this on the internet.. google "remove Microsoft Genuine Advantage" or something like that I guess
