Windows XP is now not a Vaild Copy!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Windows Tech,

                I am a Computer Technician repairing people's computers and I have come across twice now that windows xp reports that the users computer is NOW not a valid copy of Windows XP. These users have had the copy of windows xp working before any of the newer updates since July/06 (approx. for one user). Now I have looked through the forums being posted and used the MGA Diagnostic tool and it also says it is now not a vaild copy of windows. Here is the print out of the Diagnostic:

  • An Invalid Product Key is one that was illegally generated by a non-Microsoft Product Key Generator.  As a consequence, the Windows XP installation is deemed non-genuine.  A Volume License is licensed solely to a corporation or larger enterprise/business with a minumum purchase of five (5) licenses.   Individual users almost always have either a "Retail" or "OEM" license. In order to resolve the non-genuine licensing issue, please visit: www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on "Validate Windows". When validation fails, click on the Get Genuine button which will provide information on how to acquire a WGA Kit.
