need help uninstalling XP pro RRS feed

  • Question


    I found out the version of XP pro I have is a pirated copy.  I just got an authentic version of XP home but cannot load the valid OS onto my PC.  How do I uninstall the XP pro?  I cannot find the guy who "updated" my PC with the pirated software, I have been looking for him for a while.  Right now I just want the pirated OS off my PC and the XP home that is authentic to be installed.  Please help!
