  • Stewpot,

    There could be a couple of reasons as why this has occured.  First I need for you to please run the MGA Diagnostic Tool and post the full results back to your thread. Please follow the steps below. Please let us know if you have any questions.


    Please download and run the MS Genuine Diagnostic Tool utility at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 , then click the Windows tab, Copy to Clipboard, then paste the report into a New Post on this Forum.

     

    Step 2 is telling 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?

    4. DO NOT post the Product Key.

    5. Please also provide a short description of the issue you are experiencing.

     

    NOTE: The data collected with the Genuine Diagnostics Tool does NOT contain any information that can personally identify you and can be fully reviewed, by you, before being posted.



    Thank you Stewpot,

    Stephen Holm, MS

    Thank you for your rapid response.

    1. No changes to the system by me.
    2. I do  have auto updates from MS and Norton. But no warnings recieved.
    3. All other updates are manual and I have not made any for a few months.
    4. I just powered up as per normal and got that message.

    As it happens there was no real issue I just reactivated as my computer is completley legal etc. But I like to know why and what caused it.

    I Trust MS and don't often check if any updates  have warnings, but it has been the same for a couple of years with NO problems.

    I do not like NORTON and I am considering ditching it at the end of the subscription. It seems to try to take over the PC with less choice for the owner. Also their cutomer service is none existant they just try to sell support services for a product that has a problem.

    MAnythanks from a hot France
