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.

My computer is victin of software counterfeiting, please suggest how to resolve it.


Just click on the "resolve now" button on the Windows Genuine Advantage pop-up window, and read the on-screen prompts on how to get a "genuine" copy of Windows.

Or, if you purchased the computer from a computer-store, and they "pre-installed" Windows, go back to them, and get them to fix it.
If they don't, call 1-800-R-U-LEGIT and report that store for selling "pirate" versions of Microsoft software.

I am A victim of software counterfeiting. how ca i resolve this?


Well if you knowingly installed a copy from a friend or so then it could possible be a counterfeit copy...
However if you know that it is a genuine copy and you got the error message recently then contact microsoft, i have had this occur on people who actually bought there computer from a store, using "windows 7" but its the same technology used to detect the validation of your Windows so the system dont really matter, it would normally pop up after the update and then inform of a software fraud and a counterfeit copy may be installed and they had to call microsoft for resolution, they knew about it, but i never heard of it affecting XP.
Give microsoft a call if you know it is a genuine copy and they can resolve the issue for you...

Victim of software counterfeiting


This means the Windows Validation Tool has checked your installed copy of Windows and has found it to be a non-genuine copy. This means the product key is non valid.

Where did you get the PC? If a "friend" installed Windows for you then he is using illegal product keys.

If you are sure your Windows is genuine, you need to telephone Microsoft and fight it out with them.

Genuine validation


you need a valid COA(certificate of authenticity). means you need a valid product key for your operating system. Once you have it, it will solve your problem.
