  • Hello akotoh,

    The Bad News is that your computer has nongenuine installations of both Windows XP Professional and Office Enterprise 2007.  Both of these products are Volume Licensing installations; the Windows installation was done with an Invalid Product Key, while the Office installation was done with a Blocked Product Key.

    A "blocked" VLK is one that was issued by Microsoft to a business, educational institution, or governmental agency for their exclusive use in accordance with a Volume Licensing Agreement.  (Note that such use does NOT allow the resale of such VLKs.)  However, because the VLK may have been reported lost, stolen, or compromised to the internet by the original keyholder, or because the Volume Licensing Agreement has expired, Microsoft has blocked the VLK from further use.

    An Invalid Volume Licensing Product Key is one that was generated by software pirates using a program called a key generator, or KeyGen for short.  This product key was never officially issued by Microsoft, making it Invalid.


    The Good News is that your computer does at least have a Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) for Windows XP Home Edition, which means that it is still licensed to run a Genuine OEM license for XP Home Edition.  However, in order to put that Genuine license for XP Home back onto the computer, you first must get a genuine Microsoft hologrammed systembuilder/OEM/small manufacturer installation disc for XP Home.  You can order a disc from Microsoft by following the instructions in this MS KB article  http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/326246 in the section entitled "Media replacement for users of system builders' computers."

    In order to install genuine Windows XP Home when nongenuine XP Pro is installed, you must back up and offload any data that you do not want to lose, then do a clean installation of XP Home onto the computer using the genuine Microsoft XP Home systembuilder/OEM/small manufacturer installation disc, and using the Product Key printed on the Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) affixed to the computer.  You must use an OEM installation CD, as this process will NOT work with a retail XP Home installation CD.

    Regarding Office, your installed Office is nongenuine.  Please purchase a genuine Office edition of your choice and install it on the computer.  Or, you can use the free Beta of Office 2010 until it expires in October 2010:  http://www.microsoft.com/office/2010/en/default.aspx

  • Hello akotoh,

    You can remove the notice of nongenuine software by removing the nongenuine software :-)

    For further assistance, please refer to the link below and run the MGA Diagnostics tool:

     

    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012

     

    You will be prompted to either “Run” or “Save” the tool. Choose to “Run” the tool and follow the on-screen prompts. You will receive an “Internet Explorer-Security Warning” dialog box for the “Windows Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool”; you must choose to “Run” this tool when prompted.

     

    Once you are presented with the Diagnostics tool choose “Continue” to run the diagnostic report. If the “RESOLVE” button is available after running the diagnostics, please click “RESOLVE” to allow the diagnostic tool to attempt a repair.

     

    1.      After running the MGA Diagnostic tool, click on the “Windows” tab and then click on “Copy”.

    2.      Please return to this post and “Paste” the results here for additional review.

     

    Next look on the computer itself, in the documentation you received with the computer or with your retail purchase of Windows to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticity (COA).  If you have one, tell us about the COA.  Tell us:

    1.  What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center, or another version of Windows?

    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 that may be printed on the CoA.

    Not sure what to look for?  See this page for reference:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/en/coa.mspx

     

    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.

  • Hello akotoh,

    The genuine Microsoft hologrammed systembuilder/OEM/small manufacturer installation CD for XP Home Edition has this wording in the upper left quadrant of the disc:  "For distribution with a new PC only.  For product support, contact the manufacturer of your PC."

    The genuine Microsoft hologrammed full retail installation CD for XP Home Edition has this wording on the retail box (and may have it on the CD, I don't exactly remember at the moment):  "For PCs with Windows 95 or earlier, or for PCs without Windows."

    Your wallpaper (desktop background) is changed to black every hour by the WGA Notifications Utility.

    It is strongly recommended that you repartition and reformat the hard disk drive in the computer, aka a "clean installation", so as to ensure that any possible malware installed along with the nongenuine software is wiped out.

    Nongenuine installations of Windows are more likely to have malware embedded.
