my compter be a victim of sotfware couterfeiting

Did you just purchase the computer, and it had Windows XP Professional "pre-installed"?
If so, the store that sold you the computer may have used a "counterfeit" copy of Windows, rather than using a "genuine" copy of Windows (which only cost them about $100).

Or, did you recently take the computer to a computer-store, for repair (such as after having a computer-virus), and did they reinstall Windows, again using "counterfeit" software?

Or, did a "friend" install Windows XP, using "counterfeit" software?

im victim of software ounterfeiting.

Call Microsoft, at 1-800-R-U-LEGIT, and tell them where you purchased the computer, if that computer-store sold you a computer with a "bootleg" copy of Windows pre-installed. Microsoft prosecutes those computer-stores that are involved with "bootleg" software.

Then, follow the on-screen instructions to purchase a new license-key for Windows XP, using your credit-card.

I bought a new HP tower computer with Windows 7 Professional. I would rather have XP Professional....is that possible?

Yes it is completely possible to downgrade to Windows XP Professional, however to do so, you must purchase a Microsoft Windows XP license key and have access to the install media. Microsoft themselves have stop selling Windows XP, but you can find many legal copies through outlets such as this one:

i have the winsows xp professional installation disc but i don't have the product key how do i get one

Please check on the cover of the cd which came with the windows XP Professional. You should find it there if you have purchased it brand new. In case if you have lost the cover then you can contact the manufacturer of your computer if the operating system cd came with the system.
If you have purchased it through the retail then you should contact the retail store.
In case if it doesn't work then the last option is to contact Microsoft.

If you are able to login into your system then please let me know, i'll let you know about a software from which the key can be extracted from your system.
