Explanation for blocked VLK RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm struggling to figure out why my friend's copy of Windows has suddenly claimed her VLK has been blocked. We attempted to re-valid her windows (XP Professional service pack 3) online, but we've been unsuccessful. She downloaded a web gaming service onto her PC before this happened. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. See the diagnostic report below:

  • Hello LJD1stof8,

    If you search this forum for the abridged Product Key from the mgadiag report, *****-*****-3R89F-D2KXW-VPK3J, you will see that up until very recently this Product Key was reported as Genuine.  After that, it is being reported as Blocked.

    This is a perfect illustration of the nature of the Volume Licensing Agreements that permit the use of Volume Licensing Keys.  Use of the VLK is covered by the Agreement, and there are circumstances where the VLK can be lost, stolen, or compromised, or circumstances where the Volume Licensing Agreement expires and the VLK is no longer Genuine after that point.

    So that's how an installation of XP can be Genuine one day and nongenuine the next.

    Consumers and very small businesses should be using Perpetual Licenses for Microsoft products, and should never be sold software that is Volume Licensed.

  • According to your MGA report, you have two major licensing issues:

    1. You have an illegal, volume license copy of Windows XP Professional installed.

    2. You also have an illegal, volume license copy of Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 installed.

    A volume license is usually only sold to businesses and other enterprises under specific licensing agreements.
    If those product keys are illegally distributed to non-authorized users, then the use of those product keys
    is revoked and subsequently labeled as non-genuine.

    For average consumers, the licensing for Microsoft software is either Retail or OEM.

    For advice on correcting your licensing issues, visit http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/default.aspx and click
    on Validate Windows.  Repeat the process to Validate Office.
