the guy that told you not to use updates probably installed a pirated copy of Windows on your computer.

hi.
regarding the new ver 2009, aka 14.0.8050.1202, you can already download from the LIVE site and that should be the final version.

Pirated version might not work but AVG anti virus was making some conflicts with build 14.0.8050.1202
I am using Kaspersky IS 09 (original) and it works like a charm :D

As has been mention already build 14.0.8050.1202 is in fact a beta refresh. And is also on Windows Live Messengers Live Space.
