Please sofve this genuine software problem....


When you get this message it means that the licence used to install windows is not genuine.

When this happen you are supposed to call Microsoft to find out why you get the message.

To temporarily get rid of the message you can do a system restore to a date before the message came for the first time.

Regards.

Presario desktop windows vista, shuts down unexpectedly


Windows Vista will not install on old computers. If this is your case try installing Windows XP, If this does not work you might want to try Linux (Ubuntu). which will run on almost any old computer with full capabilities.
It is free and you can download it from
http://www.ubuntu.com/
