Q. I cannot install Windows updates on my Windows ME computer. I tried installing them at the site and it told me I was not running a windows operating system and tried to re-direct me to a Macintosh site.
Answer: This has been a problem that has surfaced lately for Windows ME users. Microsoft is aware of the problem and should be working on fixing it. Its not an issue with your computer but with the Windows Update site. Here are a couple of things you can try in the meantime.
