  • Hello insaniac44,

    Right now, your Packard Bell computer has a Volume Licensing edition of XP Pro installed (Line 10), and that installation was done with a now blocked Volume Licensing Key (VLK) (Line 2).  VLKs are blocked by Microsoft at the request of the original keyholder for such reasons as the key was lost, stolen, compromised, misused, or expired.  Also, MS may have blocked the key if it notices a pattern of misuse, ie, more installations of XP using that key than authorized.

    The particular Product Key you are using, which ends in DPGFR-GXGQW-MYTX6, is a widely pirated key as evidenced by how many hits it gets when searched for on the internet.

    As a rule, VL editions of XP should not be sold to individual consumers.  Businesses, schools and gov'ts normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers.  Additionally, VL editions are Upgrade licenses ONLY, and therfore cannot be used as the primary or base license for a computer.

    Quite often this situation is the result of untrained computer repair personnel at shops using downloaded copies of XP Pro to repair computers that never came with XP Pro.  If you (or the previous owners as you have said you purchased it second-hand) have ever taken the computer to a repair shop, or if a well-meaning friend ever helped you fix the computer, then this is the likely source of the problem.

    This is why you were seeing the "software counterfeiting" messages on your computer, because the current installation of XP is an unauthorized installation.

    Your Packard Bell computer did NOT come brand new from Packard Bell with this installation of XP Pro using the Volume Licensing Key.  If you look on the computer you will see a Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) that tells you what version and edition of Windows came with the computer.  If the CoA says that XP Pro came with the computer, then you may be able to use the Product Key Updater Utility http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=45668 to "genuine-ize" the XP Pro installation now on the computer.  It is much more likely that your PB computer came with XP Home or Media Center Edition, and if so, the Key Updater will not work.

    So if the CoA is NOT for XP Pro, the best course of action right now is to acquire a set of Recovery CDs from Packard Bell , then backup and offload your data for safekeeping, then use the Recovery CDs to cleanly install the right XP onto your computer.

    You also have a problem with Office Enterprise 2007.  See the snippet below:

    OGA Data-->
    Office Status: 108 Invalid VLK
    Microsoft Office Enterprise 2007 - 108 Invalid VLK

    Your installation of Office 2007 Enterprise is also nongenuine as it was done with an Invalid Volume Licensing Key.  That means a nongenuine copy of the Office Enterprise 2007 CD was used along with a fake product key made by a "key generator" program to install Office Ent 2007.  Like your XP Pro, Office 2007 Enterprise is a volume licensing edition that is not properly sold to individual consumers.

    As a student, you may be eligible for the "Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate Steal" which provides a 91% discount on Office Ultimate to qualifying university students.  Please visit this website for details: 
    http://www.microsoft.com/student/discounts/theultimatesteal-us/default.aspx  (I think the offer to students in the UK may have expired on June 30, 2009.)

    The Office situation is very similar to your Windows situation, in fact I might bet that both were installed at the same time by the same "shop" person.

    If you want or need Office on this computer, then please uninstall the nongenuine copy and purchase a genuine full retail copy from a trusted local or online store.
