Suddenly my copy of windows is not Genuine? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased this copy of windows XP upgrade years ago.  I have reformatted my hard disk and had to reinstall widows many times over the years.  Last night I reformatted and now i get this: an 'Unknown Error' during the genuine test.  I'm pretty sure that i have jumped throught this hoop once before and of course passed. 

    Whats changed?
