Just had this pop up yesterday for no reason that I have been able to figure
"To use all Microsoft Windows(R) features, such as all updates from Windows
Update; get the latest updates; and receive product support, your copy of
Microsoft Windows(R) must be validated as genuine."
There's a hyperlink attached that takes me to the WGA site
, which I would like to say is completely useless.
Thus far, I've gone to the above site and used the "Validate Windows" link
which results in:
"Windows Validation Error
"Unknown error encountered during Windows validation. The validation service
is unable to determine whether your copy of Windows is genuine. Please
validate again. If additional attempts result in validation errors you may
want to try again later."
With my right hand on my original, mint-condition Windows 95 CD, I swear
that I am using my own key which I received from Microsoft on this one and
only computer. I've not done anything to intentionally aggrivate WGA, so
might someone have seen this or know what has caused it?
Much thanks in advance!
