removing genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • a couple of years ago, i had to take my computer to get repaired.  i think the tech wiped the hard drive clean, and reinstalled win.  i'm guessing that's why it says win is pirated.  please help
     i've followed the steps, here are the results:

  • Tbrette,

    Right now your HP computer has a "hacked and cracked" installation of XP Media Center Edition, and this installation was done with an Invalid Product Key.  MS most likely invalidated the key because it was generated by a non-MS Key Generator program, which seems to be the situation in your case.

    The report is showing that you have a "retail" installation (license type) of Media Center.

    Windows License Type: Retail                  Windows OS version: 5.1.2600.2.00010100.2.0.med

    The problem with that is there is no such thing as a Retail license for Media Center (IOW they are not offered for sale in retail packaging that you would find at a major electronics retailer).  Genuine copies would have shown up in the report as either "systembuilder/OEM" or "OEM SLP."  That is why I call it "hacked and cracked."  As I understand it, this is the result of installing a crack available on the internet that adds Media Center functionality to a non-Media Center installation of XP.

    Furthermore, if you search the forum for the part of the Product Key reported by the mgadiag utility, 9MT6X-PGKC8-J4JTM, you will see that over a dozen other posters have also been victims of that particular Keygen key.

    More bad news:  The mgadiag utility is identifying your installation of Office XP Pro w/Front Page as being a Nongenuine (Office Status:  114 means nongenuine) installation done with a Blocked Volume Licensing product key.  If this comes as a surprise to you, please return to the place of purchase and demand either genuine Office software or a refund.  In any case, please uninstall the nongenuine Office XP Pro w/Front Page installation from your computer.

    The solution to your current problem is to use the Recovery Solution provided with the HP computer to put the original shipping Windows XP Operating System back onto the computer.  Typically the Recovery solution is a hidden recovery partition on the hard disk drive, or a set of Recovery CDs/DVDs.  Typically, the Recovery solution erases all user data on the hard disk drive, so please be sure to backup and offload any valuable data before you run the Recovery.  You will want to review the documentation for your exact model before you do the Recovery.
    Post back and let us know how you make out!
