    The current Product Key being used on your system is non-genuine for one of two reasons:

    - The key was made using a non-Microsoft sanctioned Key Generator

    - The key was reported lost or stolen from the original purchaser.

     

    Can you verify that your COA matches your Product Key? If it does not you can try the following:

     

    1 - Reinstall Windows so your COA matches your Product Key (install using your COA as the Product Key) - This is the preferred method by Microsoft, as it will be a fresh copy, void of potential hacked binary files and security loops that may have been created to bypass WGA. We know this is usually not the user preference, but it is the safest method.

     

    The Genuine Advantage Product Key Update Tool is only valid for users attempting to change their current non-genuine Product Key to a genuine COA sticker or genuine Product Key – all without a reinstall! http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=50346&clcid=0x409

     Note: This is provided no core system files are corrupted. If they are you will need to complete a clean install of your system.

     

     

               If your COA does match the product key being used on your system I recommend filing a counterfeit report, it MAY be a high quality counterfeit (which MAY qualify you for a *free* WGA kit) – Counterfeit report is located here: http://www.microsoft.com/piracy/Reporting.mspx

  • Kevin5421,

    Right now, your computer has a Volume Licensing (VL) edition of XP Pro installed (Line 7), and that installation was done with an invalid Volume Licensing Key (VLK) (Line 2).  VLKs are invalidated by Microsoft at the report of the original keyholder for such reasons as the key was lost, stolen, compromised, or misused.  Also, MS may have invalidated the key if it was generated by a non-MS Key Generator program.

    If you search the forum for the part of the VLK shown b the mgadiag utility, 9DPFD-M2PY3-R3F83, you will note that you are the sixth poster reporting with that Volume Licensing Key.

    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.

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

    More bad news:  Your installation of Office XP Pro is also nongenuine (Office status=114 means nongenuine).  If this comes as a surprise to you, please return to the place or company of purchase and demand that they either refund your money or provide you with a Genuine Licensed copy of MS Office.  In any case, please remove the nongenuine installation of Office from your computer as soon as possible.

    The next step in the process is to look on the computer or with the materials you received with the computer or with Windows to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticty (COA).  If you have one, tell us about the COA.  Tell us:

    1.  What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, 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 Product Key.

    There was no COA (Certificate of Authencity) in my computer. What am I going to do?????

  • Kevin,

    Your computer is running nongenuine installations of Windows and Office.  Since you do not have a Certificate of Authenticity for either Windows or Office, which would have accompanied the purchase and/or installation of genuine MS software, we can only conclude that these are pirated installations.

    The solution is to purchase Genuine MS software from a trusted source and cleanly install the Genuine software.  For Windows, you seem to qualify for participation in the Genuine Windows Offer.  For Office, there is not yet a Genuine Office Offer, so a retail purchase is your only Genuine option at this time.

  • But I do not have a Windows XP CD. The place where I Purchased the PC did not gave me a CD. Just the Unit. So I had someone to install Windows XP on my computer.

    And it would seem that "someone" installed nongenuine copies of Windows XP and Office.
