  • Hello pandj4life,

    Right now, your Gateway  computer has a Volume Licensing edition of XP Pro installed (Line 10), and that installation was done with a now-blocked Volume Licensing Key (VLK) (Line 2).  VLKs are blocked by Microsoft at the request of the original keyholder for such reasons as the key was lost, stolen, compromised, misused, or expired.  Also, MS may have blocked the key if it notices a pattern of misuse, ie, more installations of XP using that key than authorized.

    If you search the forum for the part of the VLK that is shown by the report, "WRKJB-YKRFQ-XVK98
    ", you will see that many, many other posters have reported their computers are using the same VLK.

    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.  Also, VL editions of Windows are Upgrade Licenses only and cannot be used as the base or original license on a computer. 

    This is why you were seeing the "software counterfeiting" messages on your computer, because the current installation of XP is an unauthorized installation. 

    More bad news:  Your installation of MS Office XP Pro w/Front Page is Nongenuine (Office status:114 means nonenuine).  If this comes as a surprise to you, please return to the place of purchase and demand the Genuine software you paid for, or a refund.  In any case, please remove the nongenuine installation of Office from your computer as soon as possible.

    Next, please look on the computer or with the materials you received with the computer or with Windows 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 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?  In your case we would expect "Gateway."

    4.  DO NOT post the Product Key that may be printed on the CoA.

    Not sure what to look for?  Click here:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/en/coa.mspx

     

    Luckily, the solution to your problem is simple.  Use the recovery solution supplied with the computer (often this will be one or more Recovery CDs/DVDs, or perhaps a hidden recovery partition accessed at startup using a special keystroke combination) by Gateway to replace the nongenuine volume installation of XP Pro with the genuine OEM installation of Windows.  The Certificate of Authenticity affixed to the computer will tell you which edition of XP came with the computer.  It's likely your computer did not come from Gateway with XP Pro, but probably XP Home or Media Center.  If it did come with XP Pro, you can try to use the Key Updater Utility to "genuine-ize" your installation of XP Pro.  If you do not have the originally supplied Recovery solution, please contact Gateway customer service or tech support to inquire about purchasing replacement Recovery CDs/DVDs.

    Be sure to back up and offload your data before you do this because typically the recovery process destroys all data on the hard disk
