I finally found my product key, how do I validate Win XP? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Bad situation. I moved, lots of stuff in boxes. I unpacked the computer, ran some random virus scanned a friend told me to use. Turns out this virus scanner messed up my computer badly and I had to do a system restore. When system came back up - windows cannot be validated.  I tried everything I could to get past it,  including emails back and forth to tech support. I was unable to find my key since I'd just moved, so I put it off and dealt with the annoying popup.

    Good news! I've unpacked a little and I've found the key that came with my computer. So, I need to punch it in to validate my copy of XP. Problem is, all of the places I used to be able to do that will not allow it. The resolve buttons in the launcher does not work, the help pages are gone...all I get is the little box that says "We can't vaildate you...buy 7!"

    I don't have the money for 7, I don't want 7, and I don't need 7. I just need to punch my key in, get windows revalidated, and live a happy life.
