WGA....HELP!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have done just about everything that I was told to do, even doing an uninstall on my Norton AntiVirus and a re-install, and I still can't get rid of that stupid message about I may be a victim of counterfeiting!!!!!!! I got WindowsXP already installed on my computer when I bought it!! There are a lot of  other things not working on my computer also, but I wasn't having any problems until today when I got that message. I have worked all day on this and I am no further this evening than I was this morning!!! Can someone please HELP me??????

  • Download and run the utility at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012, then click the Windows tab, Copy to Clipboard, then paste the report into a response message in this thread.

    Step 2 is 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.
