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need to either purchase a genuine copy of Windows XP (these are getting very difficult to find, because Microsoft has withdrawn this software from marketing; so, you'll need to find a small computer-store that may still have a copy on its shelves).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.

Im a victim of software counterfeiting


If you are a victim of software counterfeiting then you unfortunately are going to be the one that had to pay for it.
Microsofts policy is a joke on this subject, since when is it ok to charge the victim money to correct it?
But unfortunately you need to buy the Windows Genuine Advantage Kit here:
http://www.microsoft.com/genuine
Then once you have purchased it and received your genuine key, you have to change it with this tool: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=45668
Once you have done this, it should work again!
Hope this helps! Sorry about the having to pay for it thing, Microsoft needs to review their policy on this subject as it contravenes at least Australia's Fair Trading Act when it comes to purchased products... I'm not sure about other countries but when you buy something in australia, the service provider must provide the service or refund the entire cost of the service.
Anyway! Hope you can get your copy genuine again!

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.

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.

How can i get this genuine microsoft logo on my


This logo appears when the Microsoft OS installed on your computer has not been properly activated with a product key. This prevents Microsoft XP and Vista from installing Windows Updates like security patches and upgrades to Windows software.

You can find out more about the Windows Genuine Advantage program here. http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/ProgramInfo.aspx?displaylang=en&sGuid=351e32a4-5bee-4142-9d83-67cfbb4c521d

If you think you have a valid copy of XP or Vista installed, call Microsoft tech support. Be prepared to provide the license key. If you PC was purchased as a package deal with XP or Vista installed, the key will be on a sticker on the side or back of your PC. If you XP or Vista was installed after purchase, the license key is stickered to the packaging the OS came in.

Hello


well for starters a VLK is ushally bought by small, medium, and enterprise businesses and organizations.

If you have this on your laptop then there is a issue going on if its not a work computer or like.

if you want to fully understand the VLK please click the below link.
https://licensing.microsoft.com/eLicense/L1033/Default.asp

Microsoft Genuine Advantage programs, including Windows Genuine Advantage, help you determine whether or not your copy of Windows is genuine. Genuine Windows software is published by Microsoft, properly licensed, and supported by Microsoft or an authorized partner, giving you full capabilities, access to all the latest updates, and confidence that you are getting the experience you expect. Microsoft continues to invest in education, engineering, and enforcement in order to more effectively combat software piracy. It’s part of Microsoft’s commitment to help protect its intellectual property and to help you avoid problems before they happen.

So by the sounds of it you do not have a Genuine Windows Version installed on your computer.

If this has been bought from a store please contact them to figure out why your VLK is no good.

Also If that does not work I know it sucks I had to do it a few months ago I had to **** it up and pay for a valid copy. almost 200 dollars but in the end everything worked right.

you can go here
http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/Default.aspx?displaylang=en

and then dowload the GWA from that website as well.

I hope this helps you and you get it sorted out you can also contact their customer support for more concerns because thats about all that I can do on this matter.
