Genuine Windows Validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm having problems with Microsoft Genuine Windows Advantage stating my version of XP is not the genuine version.  I phoned Microsoft in the USA and they informed me the version of XP Professional I am running is genuine and valid, yet I have this pop up on the right hand corner of the screen that keeps telling me that the version I am running is invalid?

    My problem started when I attempted to reload the original OEM software to fix up a missing DLL file.  I cannot receive Microsoft updates if my program is certified non-genuine.  Every time I attempt to get valitdation of the software over the net the system comes up with an error message? Anyone got a clue on how to fix this problem?
