Every so often, Microsoft adds more list of known pirated keys to their database. With the recent SP3 release, they did just that. I have encountered other pcs that have passed Windows Genuine Advantage tests until this past year.

Most people asking about this are pirates... let me get that out of the way first. If you ARE in fact a victim of tampering, or fraud by the place you purchased your computer, you can get help from Microsoft. http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/ is the website to learn how to get it solved with Microsoft.

If you know your copy isn't exactly legal, then I'm sorry you are out of luck.

My compter be a victim of sotfware couterfeiting


Did you just purchase the computer, and it had Windows XP Professional "pre-installed"?
If so, the store that sold you the computer may have used a "counterfeit" copy of Windows, rather than using a "genuine" copy of Windows (which only cost them about $100).

Or, did you recently take the computer to a computer-store, for repair (such as after having a computer-virus), and did they reinstall Windows, again using "counterfeit" software?

Or, did a "friend" install Windows XP, using "counterfeit" software?

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.

Counterfeiting


Use only Windows XP Service Pack2 from authorized technicians or from your dealer. Otherwise, your installation might not work well. Try another XP SP2 from another source and proceed with the Installation. Ask also the real Product key of the OS from the Provider.

Windows counterfeiting


Any "counterfeit" copy of Windows XP probably includes a computer-virus. Purchase a _legitimate_ copy of Windows from a Microsoft-authorized retailer, and "get legal".

Software counterfeiting?


tell technician if he used pro with a key already installed
he needs to change key

or reinstall with xp home if the pc has sticker on side originally.

usualy this is the result of p2p xp customizers that make "lite" versions and so on.

i have downloaded a real oem xp home from most makers like hp, dell, sony the xp home cd works for all with same key under laptops with home sticker. or desktops on its sides or rear.
