invalid windows xp RRS feed

  • Question

  • It is quite clear that Microsoft is deliberately blocking valid product codes. The phone help, regeneration of activation codes and such is misleading, doesn't work and is fraudulent.The phone and activation window site that comes up doesn't work. The web is filled with the problem so MS can't say they don't know about it. The whole process is designed to frustrate so users will buy another Windows. Once again, misleading and fraudulent.

    Ranting never got anyone anywhere.
    If you have a valid complaint, then post details (which are singularly lacking from your post)
    If you want help, then you need to post the MGADiag report that any assistance would ask for.
    If you are just complaining about MS, then you should be in the Apple forums, where others of like mind can smooth your fevered brow.
     
    In short - unless you let people know what the problem is, you are not going to get any significant help in solving it.
     
    This holds true whether you pay for help, whether the help is free, or whether you just hope for assistance of whatever kind is available.
    Grousing about your lack of ability to solve a problem does nothing except demonstrate your own ability.
     
    Actually phrasing an answerable question (even if the answer is 'I have no idea') shows a willingness to conduct a dialogue with the responder.
    So far, this is lacking.
     
    Perhaps you'd like to start again?
