Not genuine software

Recommended Posts

Just after a recent update, a new icon appears saying this software is not genuine, has anyone got a patch to stop this appearing?

I dunno why that would occur all of a sudden.

Well, did you purchase XP, or did you install a pirated version? If the former, then try out Microsoft's diagnostics tool for WGA notification problems: http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/diag/

Otherwise, BUY A COPY OF WINDOWS. There's no LEGAL way around it.

What your download did was to load the latest WGA files that link to a Microsoft database of Corp #'s that have "escaped" to the wild, yours is on of them.

The activation works when you installed, all the Corp versions do. However, they fail the WGA check.

As one of the answers above said, buy a legal copy.

Microsoft will sell you a key # on-line for $149.00, cheaper to buy one on the Internet.

by passing WGA is illegal, don't bring msfn down by discussing how to remove it. just buy a copy of XP home upgrade or something.
