Question about Computers & Internet
Not sure if your concern is if XP is counterfeit, or just an original installation, so we will address both.
One of the easiest ways is to look at the system properties. Right click on 'my computer' on your desktop or start menu --->Properties-->General Tab. It will show version and registration information. Look for a brand e.g. Dell. If it shows a known brand it probably is a original installation. Some small OEM computer makers fail to brand the computers, but all the major brands will. It could still be an original operating system with a new installation (by user), in which there will be no brand name or support info.
