  • Hello mtb1099,

      Please go to http://microsoft.com/genuine and click the Validate Windows button. 

    If it Validates as Genuine, you are fine.

    If it Validates as Non-Genuine, you will be provided information on how to order a WGA Kit. A WGA kit consists of a Genuine copy of Windows (sent by mail) and a Valid Windows Product Key (sent by email) sold at a substantial discount.


    Hope that helps,
    Darin MS
