  • Question

  • I am getting a message that indicated that the copy of Windows XP that came with my computer may be counterfeit. I ran MDG Diagnostics and got the following:

  • If you look at the MGA diagnostic data above, then under WGA Data you would see Validation Status: Blocked VLK

    This means that your copy of Windows XP is activated by using a Volume Licence Key (VLK) which is meant for enterprise sector for volume activation of client computers by system administrators.

    Since this VLK is being illegally used, so Microsoft has blocked this VLK and computers which are activated by using this key, would be shown error message as 'You may be a victim of Software Counterfeiting. This copy of Windows is not genuine'

    To resolve this issue, you need to revalidate windows from http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/ and then follow on-screen instructions to update your product key with the  legitimate key (if you have one) or you need to buy a new one directly from Microsoft.

    I hope that this solves your query.
