Blocked VLK and not genuine windows? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I bought this DELL a few years ago and it came with XP. I don't remember if it was reinstalled at any time with another XP, but I figured this message might allow the staff at Microsoft to confirm it, and let me know what I can do to get rid of the blocked VLK. Thank you

  • A "Blocked VLK" is a Volume License Key that is valid, but was licensed solely to a corporation or larger enterprise/business. Blocked VLK's are Product Keys that Microsoft has received consent from the original owner to block usage of. A VL Product Key is non-transferrable to individuals.

    In order to resolve your non-genuine licensing issue, please visit: www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on "Validate Windows". When validation fails, you'll see a button to click on which will provide information on how to acquire a WGA Kit.

    As an alternative, if you have your Dell Windows XP Reinstallation CD, and its for Windows XP Home Edition, you can perform a "clean install" of your original Windows XP Home Edition operating system.

    In addition, your copy of Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage is non-genuine. You'll need to uninstall it and purchase a genuine version of Microsoft Office.
