Hi ... First thing I would do is try to get a hold of shopping tv place and see what they tell you and whether if they will help .... I seen this from other source
This will tell you if your Windows XP is legal or not.
Please download this from Microsoft and run it on your computer
Filename = WGADiag2.exehttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012
If it shows anything other than Genuine it is illegal as far as Microsoft is concerned and it might just be but if you get that it is illegal follow the next step
Microsoft did introduce a program where they would replace a pirated copy of XP if it was unknowingly acquired and you will find the details of that offer at this link. I think the best thing for the member to do is to contact Microsoft and they may be able to help the member out. http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2...7-25WGA1PR.mspx
