  • Hello Darko,


        Thank you for posting your Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool information. We are sorry to hear about the situation you are currently experiencing. The diagnostic results help our team in determining the root cause of your issue. 

        The Windows XP Professional Product Key installed on this computer was not assigned by Microsoft. The Product Key is counterfeit and was most likely generated by a Product Key generator. The Product Key found on your computer has been detected on multiple computers. Product keys are only allowed to be used on one computer unless otherwise specified in the End User Licensing Agreement (EULA).   You will find numerous sites where this Product Key has been posted.  Use your favorite search engine and paste in the Product Key.     

        There are situations which can cause Windows XP to become non-genuine. Let me give one example.  Customers have taken in their systems for service along with all the software received when purchasing their system. The customer picks up the system and viola’ no problems whatsoever until they need to download an update. Suddenly their system is non-genuine. The customer's computer was not installed with their software but either a blocked Volume Licensing Key (VLK) or a Keygen’d Product Key. Also the software could work for several weeks, months, or even a year or more then suddenly become blocked. 

        This is why you may be seeing the "Software Counterfeiting" messages on your computer. You will need to uninstall XP Professional before any further complications occur from being non-genuine.

        Under NO circumstances should someone try to download/distribute ISO images for software from a P2P file sharing site or use a second-hand burned copies of software. Research has shown that about half of the software copies available on P2P download sites are infected with root kits, spyware, Trojans, and other potentially harmful malware. One file in particular was very alarming.  This file was an administrator account giving the attacker full control over both your system and data.  I would be very concerned about your system integrity because Windows is non-genuine.

        As a customer there are several options available for you to get to a “Genuine” status. For details on the ways to get “Genuine”, see the web page that outlined your validation failure details. It will provide all of the possible steps which you can take. Here is the link:

    http://www.microsoft.com/genuine

        If this comes as a total surprise to you, please visit the retailer where you purchased the computer or operating system and let them know the operating system is a counterfeit copy.  Request they immediately reimburse you and/or provide a Genuine Copy.

        Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) is here to help protect YOU, our valued customer. It is important for more people like you, who have become victims, to report piracy at the following link:

    http://www.microsoft.com/piracy/reporting/default.aspx

        Microsoft legal will follow up on all leads provided.  Submitting piracy reports will assist in stopping unscrupulous business practices.  You may be eligible for free software if you have high quality counterfeit discs. 

        Again, we are sorry to hear about your situation. Please be sure to backup or otherwise off-load any data from the hard disk because a clean installation/re-imaging will destroy all personal user data on the hard drive.

    Thank you for visiting the Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) program forum.

  • Try updating the product key by:

    1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Activate Windows.
    2. Click Yes, I want to telephone a customer service representative to activate Windows, and then click Next.
    3. Click Change Product Key, type the new product key, and then click Update.
    4. Click Telephone, and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the activation process.
