  • Question

  • In 2002 I ran a business which required 4 computers.All were networked but only 2 were on line. With Auto Cad  and other specialist type programs I paid over $50Kau.Now MS is saying to me that my XP is not genuine.I now have only 1 unit on line. I closed the business in 2005.Until now all was fine but now I am being harrased by MS.My srean is controlled by them.My PC is running like a sick dog.They infitrate my computer to the extent that I cannot block their messages,I cannot block their signage.Ask for information? yes, if you can understand Pakistani Or Indian dialect. When you call them all they say say is that you need to by a MS program.GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME?.Come on Bill, if your program is so good copied then why am I buying Anti-Spam-virus,pop-up.This cost me $300:00 +.You claim that my windows are not genuine?then pay for my on going costs.LEAVE ME ALONE. I PAID FOR THE WINDOWS PROGRAM.GET YOUR ____ OFF MY SCREEN.

  • Hello czardog,

    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.
