You may be a victim of software conterfeiting RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a legal copy of  windows XP HOME EDITION and a cd key is on the back of my PC. I runned this one test and it showed that im using a different key (You may be a victim of software conterfeiting).

    That happened when i tried to install Service Pack 2 which i did before but i had to reinstall it because some of my programs stopped working(it was not a service pack issue i just didnt knew at that time so i uninstalled it).

    Now i would like to validate my windows  with a Legal key that came with my PC. I will not reformat my HD because i have alot of things to do and i dont wanna loose all my files. (100gig)

    Please help!

    Since your COA and Product Key do not match, I would say you have to reinstall at this point. Your product key is for XP home only, and it seems you're running XP professional, correct? Our (currently being developed) tool will not allow non-genuine XP Pro licenses to move to genuine XP home licenses - as Pro and Home are two different products.

    I'm sorry for the bad news,
