Windows Validation ActiveX not working. RRS feed

  • Question




    I am trying to download the update that deals with the Graphics Virtual Address problems, and I need to validate that my copy of windows is genuine before it will let me.


    When I click continue, I dont get any prompts for ActiveX so I try the Alternate Method. I click continue to run the validation tool but I always get "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".


    I have tried setting all my ActiveX security options to Enable or Prompt, but still nothing happens.


    When I try the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic tool, I get a pass for ActiveX Enabled, but a fail for Windows validation ActiveX loaded.


    How am I supposed to validate that my copy of Windows is Genuine?
