  • Question

  • I have a Dell PC with W2k.

    The validation simply do not work.

    I had tech support send me emails after snail to help me get the automatic update kind of working.  But when I try to download anything on the site it tells me it can not validate.  I told me support person but she did not know how to fix it.

    If microsoft want to know if my window is a legal copy then come take a look or set up shops where we can take it in for validation as last resort.

    I consider myself as an expert user.  If it frustrating to me could you imaging how frustrating will be to regular user.

  • Great!

    I need to know why I could download before but I can not now.  It keep saying I do not have a legal copy and can not validate.

    I had microsoft tech support help me before and it did not resolve the problem.  I told her that but never got another support call back.
