  • genuine xp product doing troubles

    Hi,

    My computer runs xp pro, and
    before couple of weeks I've download the windows genuine advantage(wgt) which was part of the wsus package for that month.
    Now, I get those annoying pop ups about my product not being original.
    Furthermore, there is a process that is tied to this matter, which kills my computer and "eats" all the memory.

    what can I do if I can't find the xp copy nor the cd- key.
    I've heard about some sort of patch or maybe dealing with the registry...

    thanks

    israel

    The best thing to do is call MS direct and explain to them your situation.

      You can try to retrieve yor cd-key as daniel explains here:

      Probably the activation won't success, but having the cd-key you can go on and call ms to get an other code.

      regards,

        Seriously, call the MS Piracy hotline in your country. They will send you an email (or give you a link) that will test your installation to make sure it is genuine and then you will have no problems. The same thing happened to me with 2 genuine OEM installs and the MS link fixed the problem. They now have a KB article on it. As usual after stumbling across the useful validation tool I am unable to find it after a long search. You could try this and see if it helps. http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/diag/

        I will post the other link if I find it, but it might be quicker to call the MS Piracy hotline first.
