    Here's a link to the WGA FAQ.

    This should answer any questions about WGA you might have.

     

    Thanks,

  • The FAQ didn't answer the question. 

    This information is retrievable by a competent programmer without installing a 1-MB program on my computer.  I know my XP is legal since I received it directly from a Microsoft during an upgrade offer when I upgraded from ME. I just hate running down and killing all the programs that are constantly trying to contact the web without my permission.
