    Platform WinXP SP3

    When I try to pull down updates from MS sites a window comes up saying that
    these sites ate only for WINDOWS not MAC. ie. somewhere along the line my
    machine is being read as a MAC machine. I only have as above, no second OS
    etc, but for a couple of months I cannot pull down updates.
