windows not genuine became genuine RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have a desktop running Windows XP Professional but windows was not genuine.

    A friend of mine gave me a torrent wherein I could download movies and games.Out of curiosity I searched for windows...and lots of windows files came out like "windows key generator", "windows key activator" etc..etc.. I dowloaded it and install it on my computer not thinking of any harm, and then my pc restarted...when it was opened, the pop up small window on the lower left side of the screen that showing "windows is not genuine" has gone..

    What happened? Does it mean those activator really works? or might be I have downloaded some thing...I am so confused..
