How do i get my personal tin no.?


Windows requires an authenticity verification to prove that you have a valid version of windows....If you got a computer from a friend and you don't have the original windows operating disk you will be asked to validate that you don't have a bootleg copy of windows...You will have to make sure that the windows operating disk validation number matches that of the computer that it came with...
I know this stinks because I bought a laptop at a garage sale and I didn't think to ask if they had the original operating system disks and I now don't have the proper validation number....I've heard there's a way around it but that's not mine to share....Sorry...Good Luck.

When trying to reinstall windows xp, the process keeps failing during setup saying, "The file comct132.dll was not copied correctly. The file Setup on your hard drive is not a valid Windows XP system...


Click start/run Type: cmd
In the Command window type:
SFC /scannow Note the space between SFC and /scannow

You can copy/paste: SFC /scannow

Hit the Enter button
keep your xp cd handy in case you're asked to chuck it into your cd rom

The above should replace missing files and get you to the place where the install can proceed.

Let me know. __________________

My computer will not allow me to acces microsoft word nor powerpoint. how do i do this? it is asking for some type of validating code which i do not have....help please!


Well, if you do not have the validation code, then Microsoft requires you to purchase a whole new copy of microsoft office. The same goes for Windows Operating System itself. If you don't have the key to validate your copy, they offer this... "Purchase a new Copy"

Activate window xp


You need a valid product key of windows xp to activate it. If you don't own a valid copy and a product key your only option is to do a fresh install of windows and you will get those 30 days again, untill you get it sorted out or buy a copy of windows.

I cant see my desk top start menu tool bar


You are between a rock and a hard place, if your win software is illigitimate then you would need to purchase a genuine copy.
Take care in your selection, Ebay would probably be your best bet.

Well XYZ if you had XP already on your computer and it worked, then there is no reason to go back to Windows Me 2000, but you do need to get ahold of the person who installed the XP version and have him reinstall it. You will have to Activate that one also within 30 days or it will do the same thing again. Or if you have someone with Win 2000 that will have to be reinstalled too. Regardless of which windows you decide on it has to be installed fresh. As for the Error Message windows cannot validate your version of windows is what they are telling you. I had that problem for so long I finally got tired of the **** and validating over the phone I finally got my XP that doesn't need validating. I do however have the validation code for all windows, send me your e-mail address and I will mail it to you. You will probably have to accept it before it will allow you to get it. After I send you the code I will remove your e-mail address for I have no need for it, Right? The code won't work for the windows alreadry on your computer, you need a fresh copy to install for the code to work. Let me know who you are when you write me so I don't delete your message. something like it's me, XYZ.
Good Luck

Invalid code, and wrong product


Sounds like you have 2 legitmate choices.

Either install WIndows ME on the system since that is the OS that shipped, or purchase and install a retail copy of Windows XP
