Not Genuine for 1 1/2 years now! Hmmm... RRS feed

  • Question

  • My computer was custom built and came with XP Pro.  Did a download for Defender and now I'm not genuine.  Well...I now have XP Home (yes genuine CD and COA.)  Question:  Will XP Home install over XP Pro?  Do I have to worry about files I've saved?  Couldn't find any help/support for these questions.

  • You'll need to backup your important files, then proceed with a "clean install".
