Windows XP Validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a computer that my brother built and gave to me as a Christmas gift, three years ago.  I am running a copy of Windows XP Professional that I got from my mom about a year and a half ago.  I am on a fixed income, and can't afford to go out and buy a copy of XP Pro.  My question is:  Is there a way for low-income people to obtain a "valid" copy of Windows?  Or is Microsoft so worried about the all mighty dollar that they require every copy of Windows to be "valid"?

  • Noname37,

    Do you have a full copy of Windows 98, 98SE, or Me available to you?
