unable to download compatibility checker

i am able to download dmsetup and run it but once it tries to download "compatibility checker" the internet freezes on and off and the download restarts repeatedly. Other than that the internet and downloading functions perfectly. (DSL through a router)
My computer is an AMD Quad core phrenom 9600 , 2GB ram , running windows xp sp2.
I am 99% sure i just need a windows update but i dont know which one. Any help is muchly appreciated. Thanks.

Then go to Windows Update and set it to seek updates for all components using Microsoft Update.

Also consider getting SP3 as it will soon be mandatory. There is help with that here.

Can't say which updates you need as that answer would only be known to the developers.

RE: unable to download compatibility checker

i am unable to do so as i don't have a legit copy of win xp. My choices at the moment are
buying windows vista (or xp) or not renewing mcafee in 5 months. Thanks for the fast reply

RE: unable to download compatibility checker

Then I would uninstall McAfee, using the MCPR tool in my signature, then consider using a free application that isn't so fussy, such as Avast Free Anti-Virus (it's good) and/or Comodo Security Suite or just the firewall part of it, or similar.
