    My legal copy of Windows has an authenticity certificate "Windows A XP Professional 1-2CPU OEM Product"

    A couple questions.   Will I be able to use the Key Update Tool to change the product key with this version now installed on my machine?

    I have once attempted to use the Key Update Tool and though allowing me past the window for entering the legal product key a pop-out came out stating that a system restore point was not able to be established and that proceeding further might be a risk.  I did not risk.  So, what is the preparatory regime to be followed to prepare the machine before running the Key Update Tool?

    Help is appreciated.
