    Hello:

    I downloaded and installed the validation tool last year. Then I did the
    validation. I passed of course since I have a ligit copy of Windows.

    However I was wondering why my machine downloaded the validation tool again
    today when I went to the Windows update site to see if I needed any new non
    critical updates?

    I assume everything is ok because the updates still work. Just thought it
    strange to have to download the tool again yet I did not have to click any
    button to revalidate.

    I guess but strange that once you have validated again you should have to do
    it a second time.

    That is like taking a college entrance exam and once in being told you have
    to do it again.

    I believe it did install ok. It did not actually ask me to click the
    validation button and run through the process again but it just installed. My
    history of updates shows it installed and I can do a custom scan so it must
    be good.

    One thing though I do not have a computer that is from a vendor or name
    brand. I built my own and it has not had any hardware replacements since the
    original validation except for a memory increase to 1gig.

    Hope for the rest of you that had problems some how it works itself out.
