Validation Failure Help RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have had XP Pro for more than five years on my computer and today this validation issue comes up. I ran the  suggested scan and there is some kind of "Geography" issue? There now is a"Windows Genuine Advantage" transparent reminder constantly showing in the right screen corner and a black backround on the deskstop. Can someone help me with this issue? Thanks

    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
    Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
    To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.

    Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine, but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
