  • Question

  • I have a fully validated version of Windows XP Pro on my computer. All I have done is install the automatic updates from Windows/Microsoft and now get a pop up from Genuine Microsoft stating - “You may be a victim of software counterfeiting. This copy of windows did not pass genuine Windows validation.”
    Directs me to the link below where it states “This copy of Windows did not pass genuine validation.
    The product key found on this computer is not valid for use in your region.”
    http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/downloads/nonGenuine.aspx?displaylang=en&cCode=USA&Error=13&PartnerID=107&sGuid=6c140663-a8a2-453a-b9c2-41ec490a8d03&submit= 1


    Now when I try to download updates it does not work.

    This copy of Windows did not pass genuine validation.

    The product key found on this computer is not valid for use in your region.

    Now this is the exact same copy of windows i was always using which has worked perfectly and had no issues.

    Please help.
