  • Hello Delcy,

    First we really need for you to re-run the MGA Diagnostic Tool and post the UNEDITED version back in the thread. The diagnostic results are imperative for us to help resolve what you are experiencing. You mentioned purchasing XP Professional from a college bookstore roughly 3 to 4 years ago. Are you currently a student @ that College where the software was purchased? Have you read the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA) for the XP Pro you purchased? You may not be able to continue using the software which you purchased while a student @ the College. I am not the expert nor will I give any guidance pertaining to EULAs as this does fall outside the support scope for WGA as well as outside my expertise. 
    Please read your End User Licensing Agreement (EULA). In order to read your EULA, click Start>Run, type winver and click OK, then click on the link for the license terms or EULA.

    Take care and hopefully this may provide you with more information.

  • Windows Product Key: ?????i'll never tell????
    Windows Product Key Hash: XbLdsLqP80GZnjNiXZWu+S9y9s8=
    Windows Product ID: 76487-016-9110541-22523
    Windows Product ID Type: 0
    Windows License Type: Unknown
    When you first installed it, did you have to activate it? If you did not, did the Operating System come with your computer, preinstalled, and you reinstalled using your manufacturer's CD or DVD? If it did not, do you have a Volume Licensing agreement with Microsoft, or are a Software Assurance Customer of Microsoft? If not, you may have a pirated version of Windows. Try running msoobe.exe /a. If it says you need to activate, activate. If it is already activated, reply to me. Hope this helps!

    Delcy - rune msooobe /a. What does it say? Does it say that its already activated or does it say it needs to be activated. Do you still go to that university, because if you dont, you are not allowed to use the academic licenses ( such as that given to you by your university or bought at your university)

    By the way - a simple google search will reveal if  you have a pirated key or not.

    Also, what beta did you recently install?
