First, you have to make sure the legal one that you have is the same version as the one you are using. Probably it isn't. You probably have a volume license key installed and most likely that is not the key that you have, you probably have an OEM key. That being said, here is a step by step tutorial on how you may be able to accomplish this task: http://www.help2go.com/Tutorials/Windows/Find_or_Change_My_Windows_Product_Key.html Good luck!

    Why is that not helpful? It was a step by step instruction to do the very thing you asked for IF you had the right product key?

How do I change key code for Windows XP. Somehow I have a notice that Windows Genuine Advantage is on my system and has determined that my copy is illegal. The copy on my system is a legal copy that was...

Windows activation is right. Your do not have a legal installation of XP. It works strictly on fact and bases its results on a long list of legalities. It has nothing to gain by "lying" to you and everything to lose. You should speak to the company that sold you the computer or anyone that reinstalled XP for you and have them resolve this problem.

However, if you still think that you have a legal copy of XP you can try re-entering the key. The process is to deactive XP and then reactiveate it using the new product key. Here is a decent tutorial:
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/productkeysactivation/ht/changexpkey.htm

Hopefully, this will take care of things.

However, if it does not work it means that the product key you are using cannot legally active the copy of XP installed on your computer. (Ex. XP-OEM, XP-Retail, XP-MAPS CD-ROMs each have a specific set of product keys that are not interchangeable.)

If this helps please vote for my solution.

I realized that I have an ilegal copy of w. xp. I´m in trouble.

eWell if its been donated, it needs to be wiped clean anyway. You have no idea what they have been doing on it, there could be something illegal on it besides software.

If you have a copy of windows XP
Format the PC, Reinstall XP and use your legal serial.

Ive also never heard or seen a banner placed on a desktop before. Typically Windows update installs the Windows Genuine Advantage tool that pops up all the tim telling you your copy is not legit.

Hope this shed some light on the subject, best of luck. Posts back if you need any further help.
