Wanting to find my MS Windows update history.
So I click on Start -> Windows Update and I get a screen with Options on the left side
however 3 Options are grayed out and not clickable.
They are (1) Review your update history (2) Restore hidden updates and (3) Change settings
Why are the options there but grayed out and useless and how can I see my update history?

BTW ... I am using Windows XP

What are you looking for? Might be easier to see in the add/remove programs control panel applet. Click the 'show updates' option and it should show all updates. I just checked one of my XP VM's and I'm able to review update history.
