Revalidating windows xp No reg chat
Windows Genuine Advantage, an integer part of Microsoft's anti-piracy efforts under the Genuine Software Initiative umbrella, suffered a massive worldwide server infrastructure outage over the course of the past weekend.
As an immediate result, the WGA labeled all genuine copies of Windows Vista and Windows XP going through the validation mechanism as pirated.
Once you bought the computer you plan to buy a genuine windows xp and dont want to reinstall in that PC.
Windows (where did this come from and how do I get rid of it), Default User (this is fine), My Name (this is fine), My Name.
Computer Name (again, where did this come from and how do I get rid of it) I've setup XP on home systems more times than I can remember, but have never encountered this probelm.
For example, if you wanted to change the product key on an XP machine without SP1 and had already saved the script to root directory on the C: drive, you would click Start Run and enter the following command: Of course, xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx in this scenario is a valid product key.
The script should take only a few seconds to run and won't prompt you for further action unless there's a problem, such as an invalid product key.
