My computer got infected with a nasty virus and after working with someone in the maleware forum, they advised that I needed to reformat my hard-drive since the security of my computer has been compromised. . I tried looking for my xp pro disc but cannot find it. I do still have my service key for it though. According to my computer, its currently running xp professional 2002, service pack 2. My question is, will my key work with any version of xp pro (whether it be a newer version of sp2 or sp3?) or will it get rejected?
I'm aware of the forum's copyright policy, but since I already own an authentic copy of xp pro, have my key, and just lost my disc, I'm hoping someone can help me out with this.
