Convert my system to Genuine Windows

My Windows would not validate so I had to purchase on line a Windows Genuine Advantage Kit in order to validate my windows. I was given an address to go to Windows---http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?Linkld=119627 order support but my website said that the address could not be found. So I would like to validate my windows,it will be 2-4 weeks before I will receive my Windows media but they did give my product key to me---so I have it and I don 't know what to do to install it into my computer---Can you help me? My product is WINDOWS GENUINE ADVANTAGE KIT.

I want change vista to windows xp in my thoshiba satellite u 300-153


First, you'll need to either purchase a genuine copy of Windows XP (these are getting very difficult to find, because Microsoft has withdrawn this software from marketing; so, you'll need to find a small computer-store that may still have a copy on its shelves). Or, start with a "non-genuine" copy of Windows (and hope that it's not already virus-infected) and then when it is detected as being "non-genuine", then use your credit-card to purchase a "Windows Genuine Advantage Validation" kit, to convert your "bootleg" version into a "genuine" version.

Then, you'll have to be aware that Toshiba may _NOT_ have created device-drivers for your computer for Windows XP. It's possible that some of your components (wireless, video, sound, network) will _NOT_ work, due to the "missing" device-drivers.

You'll be much further ahead if you upgrade to Windows 7, which addresses many of the issues that were problematic in Windows Vista.

May be victim of counterfeiting


The "Windows Genuine Advantage" extracts the 25-character product-key from your installed copy of Windows, and compares it to Microsoft's database of "non-genuine" product-keys.

In your case, it found a match, which implies that you are using a "non-genuine", e.g., "bootleg", version of Windows.

Click the "Get Genuine" link, and have your credit-card ready, to make an online purchase of a valid product-key.

Victim of software counterfeiting how to rectify it


Incase you are a victim of counterfeit product of Microsoft then :-
  1. Purchase a valid Windows XP cd-key online from Microsoft.
  2. If you can produce high-quality counterfeit media, along with a proof of purchase, you can get a free replacement key from Microsoft.
  3. Contact your reseller for redress.
  4. Purchase Windows XP from a local OEM reseller.
  5. Purchase Windows XP at a retail location.
Notice the word "Purchase" appears in three of those five options. There's almost no way to finagle a free cd-key out of this.
Counterfeit software can come from a number of sources. It's important to use a reputable reseller when purchasing software or PCs that come with software.
And, now the good part :-
Microsoft also offers several options to help victims of counterfeit software obtain a legal copy of Windows, including a complimentary offer for victims who were deceived into buying highy quality counterfeit copies
To help customers who unknowingly purchased a counterfeit version of Windows XP, Microsoft has created two genuine Windows offers for those who qualify:
  • Complimentary offer: Microsoft will make a complimentary copy of Windows XP available to customers who have been sold counterfeit Windows. Customers will be required to submit a proof of purchase, the counterfeit CD, and a counterfeit report with details of their purchase. Only high-quality counterfeit Windows will qualify for the complimentary offer.
  • Electronic License Key Offer: Microsoft will offer an alternative for customers who find out via the WGA validation process that they are not running genuine Windows, but do not qualify for, or choose not to take advantage of, the complimentary offer. These customers will be able to license a Windows Genuine Advantage Kit for Windows XP directly from Microsoft for a special on-line purchase price. The Windows Genuine Advantage Kit for Windows XP will include a new 25-character Product Key and a Windows Product Key Update tool that will allow customers to convert their counterfeit copy to genuine Windows XP electronically.

Why am does this message "you may be a victim of software counterfeiting this copy of windows did not pass genuine windows validation" promptly appearing on my desktop?


It means that the copy of microsoft windows installed on your system in not a Genuine Copy (not original, duplicate copy). If you purchased it from a retailer or from an online store etc.. you can complain them about this issue. We can get rid of this notification, but it's not legal. So I don't recommend the method, but instead you proceed with the complain. I hope you understand what I mean.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Microsoft genuine


Hello,

I assume that you are referring to Microsoft Genuine Advantage and Windows. I can refer you to this website provide by Microsoft for the genuine advantage program.

To begin I would recommend running a validation scan, which can be done on the right by clicking on "Validate Windows." If the scan returns stating that your copy is genuine then your alerts should go away. However, if the scan returns stating your copy is not genuine then you will either need to provide proof of purchase (receipt or something similar) or purchase a genuine license from Microsoft.
