Hello

My name is Billy Reeves.

The 25 characters need to be typed into the fields 5 characters at a time. DO NOT TYPE THE HYPHENS!

Sorry, I didn't mean to yell, but I was just trying to make a point.

If the string of characters on the CD package are unreadable, try looking at other areas like the pamphlet that is enclosed with the CD package. Most quality software will have the "code" in more than one place. Record it, back it up, keep your folders organized.

Xp pro prod key for cd kit 394378-002


If you have a desktop computer, look for the "genuine" Microsoft decal on the side/back of the case.
If you have a laptop computer, look for the "genuine" Microsoft decal on the bottom of the case.

You'll find a 25-character license-key. Enter that key, when prompted, during the installation of Windows XP.

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.

My problems are repeting litter (a) in the search box and affictive way to get rid of genuine thing


> affictive [sic] way to get rid of [Microsoft] Genuine [Advantage] thing.

Your computer is using a "bootleg" version of Microsoft Windows.
Whoever installed Windows "stole" the product-key, rather than purchasing a license for the Windows software, i.e., the person was a "software pirate".

So, look (on the side of the desktop case, or on the bottom of the laptop) for the "genuine" Microsoft decal, and the 25-character product-key. Any computer manufactured since 2002 will have such a decal.

Re-install Windows, and use that product-key, to "get genuine".

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.

Says my windows xp pro is not genuine and also have no audio driver


There's no reason to 'purchase a genuine Windows7 upgrade package' if your XP Pro is legit, you simply need to find your CoA. XP Pro is supported until 2014 (assuming this lil' rock we reside on lasts that long).
Once you have your Certificate of Authenticity in hand, it's simply a matter of starting your system with your XP cd in the drive, and choosing the 'repair a previous windows installation' option...It'll ask for your 25 character cd key, which is on your CoA. If you run into problems during the activation stage, use the 'telephone a Microsoft representitive' option, and just tell the rep why you found it necessary to re-activate (major changes to system hardware, etc.)

What is the genuine advantage and my pc is genuine also


Your question isn't very clear, but Geniune Advantage is Microsoft's attempt at stopping software piracy. If you have Windows XP, this was released as a Windows update a few years back. I am pretty sure it was built into Vista when Vista was released.
The Genuine Advantage checks back with Microsoft to make sure that your CD key is valid. In addition, it uses an algorithm of information from your PC parts to create a sort of signature file that Microsoft maintains. This is so that you can't buy one copy of Windows and install it on 10 machines.
Once you run the Genuine Advantage software and register your PC and Windows install with Microsoft, it shoudn't bother you again unless you do some major hardware upgrades.
