Updates not Supported!

This is the error I get when I try to run Windows Update (v4) from the windowsupdate.com website: Windows Update has encountered an error and cannot supply the requested page; Cannot Display Page (Windows XP)

This is what Microsoft has to say about the error:
Problem Description:
This may occur if Service Pack 1 has been removed from the computer either through System Restore or by reinstalling Windows XP into the same directory. You may see a page that states that the Web page has an unexpected error or cannot display the page that was requested.

Resolutions:
The value for the CSDVersion in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows needs to be changed to 0. If you are comfortable editing the registry, follow the instructions below.
1. Click "Start," and then click "Run."
2. In the Open box type regedit and click "OK."
3. Browse in the left frame to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Windows 4. In the right frame you will see the key CSDVersion. Double click this key.
5. Change the value to 0 and click "OK."
6. Restart the computer.

THIS DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM. Then I found a useful reference on a public forum: http://www.tech-archive.net/Archive/Windows/microsoft.public.windowsupdate/2004-12/2724.html. According to this, Windows Update is disable for beta versions of Windows. Bugger!
