Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

3 Answers

This computer did not pass genuine windows validation test.

I have windows XP Professional version 2002 SP3 on my computer and have been passing the validation checks and receiving all the automatic updates since I have had this computer. The local shop that built it for me installed xp on it and it has been great until this morning when I turned it on and my monitor was black and a note in the lower right corner said. "you may be a victim of software counterfitting - This copy of windows did not pass genuine windows validation. There was a resolve button, so I clicked it and it said I could buy a genuine copy of windows for $149.99. How can I get around the greedy clutches of microsoft and resolve this? I sure don't want to format my hard drive, any help will be appreciated. Brion

It really is a nuisance for users with genuine products. This has also occurred to many people with MS Office 2003. It could however be caused by someone installing XP or Office that used a Corporate License that will require updating in a different way and not via the MS Auto Update procedure.

You can simply uninstall the MS update check that does the validation or return you machine to a known good state via the system, restore function. Look at your system history to see which update you need to uninstall and avoid reinstalling next time you get the option. So turn off auto updates and then make sure you control which updates are applied.

Also call the store where you bought the system if they are still in business.

My computer is passing an information that, this computer did not pass genuine windows validation and asking for genuine Microsoft software.So how to deal with it?


if your win xp did not pass validation then it is on more than one machine.
if you have the original microsoft disc and you're absolutely positive it hasn't been installed on any other machine you would need to speak to microsoft.

My window copy did not pass genuine window validation .


if that the case, its either yo don't have the original serial key for your windows xp. if ever that is, go and reinstall your xp and try to download a program for the validation of your xp. it will bypass the authentication security and your xp will be authenticated.

I have a dell machine and i got windows xp cd with sp3 with it but i cant activate the key or make it genuine


Your CD is not a "Genuine" Dell OEM CD, that is why you need to activate the OS.

You can buy an original Dell OEM CD for your PC which do not need activation and passes Misrosoft Update validation.

This copy of Windows did not pass genuine validation


according to the statements which you have specified the computer says that the operating system you are using is not an original software and may be a pirated version.i can suggest you two things. if you have bought the operating system xp as an original one from a dealer contact the support of microsoft and sort your problem immediately. but if you have installed the operating system from a pirated version, enter a new volume license key and switch off windows update. you will be under risk if you are updating a pirated version of xp.thanks for using fixya!.please dont forget to rate my solution.
