Windows update validation problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have this problem. I called Microsoft, because my Windows activation would not work anymore. They gave me a new code and Windows is activated. But when I try to update Windows I get this message:

    Validation Incomplete [0x80080299]

    I read some topics and downloaded that little program which came up with this:

    I have a genuine OEM Windows XP Pro CD, but I can't update anymore. Please help.

    Kind regards,
