Victim of software counterfeiting


Each copy of Windows XP has a unique 25-character license-key.
Legallly, that license-key can only be used to install Windows XP on _one_ computer at a time.

However, Microsoft is stating that the license-key used for your copy of Windows XP has been used on _more_ than one computer.

So, follow the on-screen instructions to use you credit-card to purchase a valid license-key for Windows XP. Or, if you have a fairly-recent computer, purchase a copy of Windows 7, and upgrade your computer.

Where did you get your computer? A computer-store that has "reused" a license-key is in violation of their contracts with Microsoft, and should be reported: 1-800-R-U-LEGIT.

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.

What is the installing code of Microsoft windows Xp service pack -2?


If you have a "valid" (not a "bootleg") copy of Windows XP, then there is *NO* "code" required to install XP Service Pack 2.

However, as of this month, Microsoft no longer supports XP Service Pack 2 -- you need to download/install XP Service Pack 3, in order to be supported.

Lost Product Key for Windows XP Service Pack 2 Installation cd


The product key is on the folder in which the genuine software disk was shipped to the buyer. MS Service Packs do not change the key nor should they require you to reinstall the key.
You have a pirated version of XP software and even with a key it will not pass Microsoft validation. It will be quickly disabled by Microsoft and you'll be left with a black screen.
You need to get a valid copy of the software.

Copy of windows xp did not pass genuine windows validation


The Windows Genuine Advantage program for Windows XP uses Windows product activation, validation, and notifications to verify that your copy of Windows is genuine. Using genuine Windows delivers better performance and lets you access all downloads in the Microsoft Download Center, while helping to protect you from the risks of counterfeit software.

Activation is an anti-piracy technology designed to make sure that your copy of Windows XP is properly licensed. It works by verifying that the product key is valid and is only being used on the number of computers permitted by the software license. Activation uses a simple and fast process to protect your copy and ensure that you paid for the right thing.

Validation is a quick process that allows you to find out if the product key you activated is counterfeit or has been misused. For example, you may have accidentally received a product key that was reported as lost or stolen by its original owner. Sometimes, during a repair or reinstall, an invalid product key is used if the original product key is not handy. Microsoft values your privacy and does not use information collected during the validation process to identify you or contact you.1

Notifications helps Microsoft to fight software piracy and helps to you validate that the copy of Microsoft Windows XP that's installed on your computer is genuine and properly licensed. It reminds you that your copy of Windows XP did not pass validation and provides resources that help you to easily fix the problem online.

By confirming that your copy of Windows XP is genuine, you can take advantage of all the capabilities, support, and continuous improvements—as well as the peace of mind—that come with using genuine Windows.

Hope this will helps you

Thanks & Regards

Cannot download programs from internet browser


Internet Explorer gives that error when your copy of Windows is not validated and it has been detected installed on multiple machines. Your only option is to reload Windows using the version and key that came with your computer.
