Paying for genuine XP Pro RRS feed

  • Question

  • My friend (who is not very IT literate) has found out that he has a pirate XP pro installed and wants to take up the offer of paying for a "real" copy. How does he go about it because he is worried that it may mean a complete re-install.

  • In order to resolve your friend's non-genuine licensing issue, please have your friend visit: www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on "Validate Windows". When validation fails, click on the Get Genuine button which will provide information on how to acquire a WGA Kit.
