WGA Diagnostic Data (1.5.0530.2): RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have had my computer with Windows XP for 6 or 7 years.  Now I am being told that my version is counterfeit.  Why has this only become an issue now?  At this point it is far too late for me to possibly track down the company/person who installed Windows on my PC.  I have tried, but have had no luck.

    Annoyed,

    Mike
