  • Bernard,


    Please visit the following website located @ http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/selfhelp/PKUInstructions.aspx.  Hopefully their system is running okay. Sometimes non-genuine software can pose major problems such as malware, virsus or other problems which could have been built into this non-genuine version of the software. You may want to educate them on this as well as I recommend reformatting so they have a peach of mind. 


    Take care,
