I have a DELL Inspiron 6000 with pre installed windows media edition and i am getting counterfitting message RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Laptop is a Dell Inspiron. I have had problems with spyware as everybody does. I think

    I turned off MGA during a bruttle batttle with antispywaresoldier.  Now I get the mesage that my windows is not genuine.  Is there a way to let the crook "Gates" rerun the authenticity test to prove my windows is genuine?

    Please follow these steps for assistance:

    Step 1 is to run the utility at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012, then click the Windows tab, click the "Copy" button, then paste the report into a response in this thread.

    Step 2 is to look on the computer or with the materials you received with the computer or with Windows to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticty (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?

    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.

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