    I think you better bite your tongue before slagging off.
    I have the same problem on a clients machine and it IS a real Legit copy of
    Windows XP Installed by me 2 years ago.
    I think an apology and a solution might be in order.
    In future one might politely ask " is it a legal copy of Windows?" before
    casting aspersions.

    Further to my comments about your statement "Only folks that "think" ..." I
    have got mine working now.
    But I think in future you might think a little more carefully before saying
    things like that.

    Don't you love the arrogance of these M$ Clones? They are a mirror
    image of their master in thinking that the great unwashed out here are
    all thieves and that the Malware WGA would never, ever give a false
    positive. I wouldn't put it past clones like the infamous MVP Fish to
    actually think that WGA is in fact making a mistake when it PASSES one
    of the great unwashed.
    That means nothing to these M$ites. We are all nothing but a bunch of
    thieving pirates to them. And even though we must prove it over and
    over and over and over and over that we aren't, they still do not
    believe it and that's why we must keep proving it over and over and
    over and over and over, again and again and again........

    Let's see, if MY paid for copy of XP passes the infamous malware WGA
    thief test today then that means I am the valid paid for owner of this
    copy. Now if I have to prove it all over again next time the infamous
    malware WGA demands and that it proved last time that I was the legal
    paid for owner of the OS, then the only thing it could be looking for
    is if I STOLE IT OFF *** M Y S E L F! ***

  6. If your issue is that WGA is asserting that your Windows is not genuine,
    then please post in the WGA Support Forum at

    If your issue is that there is something wrong with Windows Update, then
    please stay in this newsgroup and give more details about the symptoms you
    are seeing. Post verbatim error messages or error numbers.
