  • The results of your WGA log show that an illegal, Volume License version of Windows XP Professional is installed on your computer.  If you have a genuine version of Windows XP Professional, you can use the following program to change the Product Key to your genuine Product Key:

    The Genuine Advantage Product Key Update Tool is only valid for users attempting to change their current non-genuine Product Key to a genuine COA sticker or genuine Product Key - all without a reinstall! http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=50346&clcid=0x409

    However, if your genuine version of Windows XP is Windows XP Home Edition, you cannot use the program to change the Product Key.  A "clean install" of Windows XP Home Edition would be required:
