  • Hello Jon600,

    Right now, your computer has a Volume Licensing edition of XP Pro installed (Line 10), and that installation was done with a now-geographically blocked Volume Licensing Key (VLK) (Line 2).  VLKs are blocked by Microsoft at the request of the original key holder for such reasons as the key was lost, stolen, compromised, misused, or expired.  Also, Microsoft may have blocked the key if it notices a pattern of misuse, i.e., more installations of XP using that key than authorized.

    A geographically blocked key is blocked when it is detected in use outside of the worldwide geographic area(s) covered by its Volume Licensing Agreement.  The particular Product Key you are using, is a widely used pirated key that comes up as very popular if you do a search for it on the internet.

    As a rule, VL editions of XP should not be sold to individual consumers.  Businesses, schools and governments normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers.  Additionally, VL editions are Upgrade licenses ONLY, and therefore cannot be used as the primary or base license for a computer.  If you are an individual consumer using a privately owned computer, you certainly should not be using a Volume License.

    This is why you were seeing the "software counterfeiting" messages on your computer, because the current installation of XP is an unauthorized installation.  I would recommend contacting the person or company that sold you the software and demand the Genuine Microisoft Software that you paid for (or at the very least, a refund). I also recommend that you to file a piracy report by visiting http://www.microsoft.com/piracy .

     Thank you,

  • Thanks for your reply Darin.

    Can you explain why the product key found during the diagnostic report is different to the one on my oem software packaging? This key is NOT the one I entered. The online business that I purchased my software from is no longer listed, so it looks like I'm stuck now.

    Thanks,
    Jon

  • Hello jon600,

      A common occurrence is that if you recently had your computer repaired, the repair techs may have needed to reinstall Windows, but instead of asking you for the product key, they may have just downloaded one off the internet.

      Otherwise, I don't know.

      I would suggest reinstalling using the Product Key from the packaging and see if that one comes up as genuine (as I suspect).

    Thank you,
