  • Hello Syed Ismail Ali,

    Right now, your computer has a Volume Licensing edition of XP Pro installed (Line 10), and that installation was done with a now-blocked Volume Licensing Key (VLK) (Line 2).  VLKs are blocked by Microsoft at the request of the original keyholder for such reasons as the key was lost, stolen, compromised, misused, or expired.  Also, MS may have blocked the key if it notices a pattern of misuse, ie, more installations of XP using that key than authorized.

    As a rule, VL editions of XP should not be sold to individual consumers.  Businesses, schools and gov'ts normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers.  Also, Volume Licenses for XP are Upgrade only licenses and cannot be used as the original license for the computer.

    If you search the forum for the part of the Product Key that is shown by the utility, PY6BX-K24PJ-TWT6M, you will see that Product Key is very "popular" and has been reported on the computers of at least three dozen other posters.

    This is why you were seeing the "software counterfeiting" messages on your computer, because the current installation of XP is an unauthorized installation.

    Also, your Office 2007 Enterprise installation is showing as nongenuine:
    OGA Data-->
    Office Status: 108 Invalid VLK
    Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 - 108 Invalid VLK

    Your installation of Office 2007 is that of Enterprise, which is only sold under a Volume Licensing Agreement and is not intended for use by individual consumers who did not get Office from being associated  with a larger business, educational, or governmental institution.  Furthermore, thi installation of Office was done with a pirated Product key made using a "keygen" pirating utility.  If you purchased Office 2007 at retail from a seller or store, it's likely that you were sold counterfeit software.  If this comes as a surprise to you, please go back to where you purchased the installed copy of Office and let them know that it is a counterfeit copy and that you would like a genuine copy or a refund.

    Next, please look on the computer or in the materials that came with your computer or your retail purchase of Windows to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticity (CoA).  If you have one, tell us about the CoA.  Tell us:

    1.  What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center, or another version or edition of Windows?

    2.  Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?

    3.  Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?

    4.  DO NOT post the full Product Key that may be printed on the CoA.
