I'm valid, but keep getting a msg RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been using this company-supplied laptop for 20 months now, and today (for the first time ever) I got a balloon message that said this copy of Windows XP Pro may not be genuine.  There have been no recent hardware or software changes.

    I went to the validation webpage, where I downloaded the latest ActiveX control.  The test said I had passed validation.

    Then, a couple of hours later, I got the same balloon message, and again passed the validation test.

    There is a star icon in my system tray, and its tooltip says I may be the victim of software counterfeiting, even though I've passed validation twice.

    I'm extremely busy with my work, and don't really have time for this, but I do not want to be annoyed by popups and don't want to validate my OS every few hours.

    Here is a copy of the output from the newest MGA Diagnostics tool (any help would be appreciated):

  • Hi K:


    Thanks for your inquiry and the information!


    Looking at your diagnostics output, it may be a syncing error between your validation control (1.5.716.0) and your WGA Notifications (1.5.540.0) - i highly suggest updating to the latest version located here:



    Afterwards, reboot and please let me know.
