Cannot "Validate" Windows XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • It seems that i cannot "validate" my copy of windows. When i try to use the validation tool, it freezes my browser. I ahve downloaded it and tried manually; same thing. It freezes and i have to force reboot. I also have no diag data because the tool freezes at running activeX controls and the downloaded version just freezes over and i have to force reboot. Do I really have to reinstall XP? I ahd called into microsoft and validated my copy of XP but i cannot download anything that needs "genuine validation". I know what this is for, but with the ammount of problems i have been having recently, i ma starting to doubt the necessity for the WGA tool......

  • Its a security setting/Registry setting issue with ActiveX running on the machine.

    I would file a request with www.support.microsoft.com to get it resolved quickly and easily - modifying registry settings isn't something the forum can easily handle.
