  • Deanna,

    Please follow these steps for assistance:

    Step 1 is to run the utility at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012, then click the Windows tab, click the "Copy" button, then paste the report into a response in this thread.

    Step 2 is to look on the computer or with the materials you received with the computer or with your retail purchase of  Windows to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticity (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, or another version of Windows?

    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.

    Not sure what to look for?  See this page for reference:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/en/coa.mspx

  • Naldo,

     

    I am sorry to hear about the problem your currently experiencing. I can see right away what the issue is with Windows XP

    Professional and why it is not passing validation.  Unfortunately, the product key used to install the operating system is a

    Volume License Key (VLK) that has been blocked per the request of the legal VLK holder.  As a rule, VL editions of either an

    Operating System and/or Office should not be sold to individual consumers. Businesses, schools and governments normally use VL

    editions for flexibility in installing many computers. Also, Volume Licenses for Windows XP and versions of MS Office are Upgrade

    licenses ONLY and cannot be used as the original or base license for a new computer.
       
     This is why you were seeing the "Software Counterfeiting" messages on your computer, because the current installation of Windows

    XP Pro is an unauthorized installation. In any case, please uninstall the non-genuine installation of the operating system to

    alleviate any complications which may arise from the non-genuine status of your system. As a customer there are options available

    to you for a resolution. For details on the ways to “Get Genuine”, see the web page that outlined your validation failure details

    or http://www.microsoft.com/genuine.  It will provide all of the possible steps which you can take.

    First, if this comes as a total surprise to you, please visit the retailer where you purchased the computer or operating system

    and let them know the operating system is a counterfeit copy.  Please print a copy of the diagnostic report so you may show them

    proof for the blocked PID status. Demand they immediately reimburse you and/or provide a Genuine Copy which was originally paid

    for. Curious was your computer turned in for repairs/upgrades and was the hard drive reformatted?   In any case, please uninstall

    the non-genuine installation to alleviate any complications.
      
         Again, I am sorry to hear about your situation. Please be sure to backup or otherwise offload any data from the hard disk

    because a clean installation or reimaging will destroy all personal user data on the hard drive. Please don't hesitate re-posting

    if you need further assistance.
     
    Thank you
    Stephen Holm
