Win XP Pro " You may be a victim of software counterfeiting" message


  • Greetings,

    I am running a genuine copy of Windows XP Pro that I have had for many years and just last week was hit with this message along with a PC takeover from MS. Any help would be very greatly appreciated.

  • The installed Key is a Blocked Volume License Key - not a retail or OEM Key.

    From where did you acquire this copy of XP Pro?

    Is the visible part of the Key in the report (6BKXT-M8JJ6-RPXGJ) the same as your Key?

    If that is your Key and you purchased it, then you have been lucky to have had use of it for so long - but it's classed as counterfeit. The original License owner has either surrendered the Key, or it's been discovered to have leaked to the internet and been blocked as a result, and you will need a new License and Key

  • First thanks for the super fast response Noel, appreciate it. I purchased it from either NewEgg or Tiger years back and I don't seem to have the original packaging anymore. I have the product key written down.  No, (6BKXT-M8JJ6-RPXGJ) IS NOT part of my key. Do you want my key?

  • No thanks - I have enough:)

    Use the Product Key Update Tool - to change the Key to yours,  then reboot and  post a new MGADiag report so we can confirm that everything went OK

  • When I run the program I get an error message that says my key is "not a valid key for this system"?  As I said, I've had this disk for years and done many reinstalls with no trouble ever until now. Could I have been hit with something that changed my key? Do you think a fresh install would solve the issue?

  • Are you sure that your Key is for XP Pro - and not for XP Media Center?

  • Hi Noel, this is the only OS I have, not even sure what Win MC is.  The disk says: Windows XP Professional / includes service pack 2 / Version 2002 .  Now it does also say, and this is the first time I've actually noticed this:  "For distribution with a new PC only. For Product Support, contact the manufacturer of your PC." however I did purchase the disk seperately.

  • That's normal for an OEM System builder disk - and such a disk should have a valid Key with it.

    I am surprised (assuming that the CD and Key are valid) that the PKUT didn't work - it usually does for such disks/Keys.

    All I can really suggest is that you attempt telephone activation and speak to an operator.

  • I will try that. Can I use this number? (888) 571-2048.  Thanks for your help Noel, and for getting to me so quickly. Happy Holidays mate.

    You should use the number that's in the activation Wizard, or from this list.....
