  • To validate Windows, visit http://www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on "Validate Windows".  If validation fails, then follow these troubleshooting instructions:

    Please follow this diagnostic troubleshooting procedure:

    1. Download and run the MGA Diagnostic Tool:

    2. After running the MGA Diagnostic Tool, click
        on the "Windows" tab and then click on "Copy".

    3. Next, visit the following website and create a post in the
        "WGA Validation Problems" forum and paste the
