  • Noble Girl,

    Right now, your Compaq computer has a Volume Licensing (VL) edition of XP Pro installed (Line 6), and that installation was done with an Invalid Product Key.  Invalid keys have been generated with a nonMicrosoft Key Generator program, or were once valid keys that were reported lost or stolen by their original woners.

    As a rule, VL editions of XP should not be sold to individual consumers.  Businesses, schools and gov'ts normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers.

    Your installed Office is also nongenuine (Office Status:  114 means nongenuine).

    Since your computer is from a major manufacturer, it's very likely that your computer shipped from the factory with a licensed version of Windows preinstalled.  To get more information about this, look on the computer or with the materials you received with the computer to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticty (COA).  If you have one, tell us about the COA.  Tell us:

    1.  What edition of Windows is it for,  Windows 98, Me, 2000 Professional, or if XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center?

    2.  Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?

    3.  Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?

    4.  DO NOT post the Product Key.

I searched for the things you asked me about .. and I have the whole package ther is on my cpu the microsoft lable ( Microsoft Windows 98 second Edition ) and it is original and powered by Microsoft and I have the COA and the product key .. this is for the windows .. for the office it is alsoe powered by Microsoft and the office edition is office 2000 and I'm sure that it is original it comes with my COMPAQ computer I bought maybe 5 years ago .. and every thing in my computer is original COMPAQ hardware even the upgrade I did .. the problem is in the updating of the windows & office the one the company did the last time I send it to format the PC becouse some viruses I had and I think it was on April this year .. so can you please tell me what to do to get the GENUINE free key .. do I have to remove the latest windows edition or what .. I'm waiting for your help please .. thank you so much

  • Noble Girl,

    From what you have written in your response, your Compaq is still licensed to run Windows 98SE and Office 2000.

    To "get legal" your options include:

    1.  Backup/offload any personal data you want to preserve (docs, pix, email, financial data, music, etc), and do a clean installation of the original Windows and Office that came with the computer.

    2.  Contact a local reputable computer shop or retailer and inquire about having them install Genuine copies of XP Pro and Office XP.  I would suggest that you NOT return to the shop that installed the bogus copies of XP and Office that you have now, since this shop has demonstrated that they are not concerned with what is best for you since they installed nongenuine software on your computer.

    3.  Consider participating in the Genuine Windows Offer.  See this section of the FAQ for more info:  http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/downloads/FAQ.aspx?displaylang=en#Question6Label  The GWO will address the bogus installation of XP but then you still have that nongenuine installation of Office to deal with.

  • Unfortunately, you're currently using XP Professional and Office XP Professional - neither of which are genuine.


    The COA's you own are only valid licenses for Windows 98 SE (which is spectacular, actually!) and Office 2000.


    I'm guessing that the repair company is illegally using volume licensing to repair media - and I would suggset to go back to that retail point to remedy the situation (as they have taken advantage of your computer). They should be able to provide you with genuine Media if they are a genuine retailer.
