Validating windows xp pro

Important: I highly recommend that you back up the registry keys you're changing in these steps as an extra precaution.If you're uncomfortable making registry changes in order to change your Windows XP product key, using the popular free product key finder program called Winkeyfinder is another option.

I’ve provided two methods of removing WGA manually.

I’d recommend you try the first set of instructions to begin with, the second set is provided in case you can’t get the first working.

Changing the product key that you used to install Windows with might be necessary if you find out that your current product key is...

well, illegal, and you've purchased a new copy of Windows to solve the problem.

and display a number of notifications if your product key isn’t kosher.

There’s nothing wrong with still using XP, a number of staff here at Make Use Of have yet to budge in fact.Boot normally and once Windows is back click Restart your PC and if all has gone well, your WGA notifications shouldn’t be visible. Navigate to your Windows\System32 folder and at the top of the window click so that you can see all of the offending items.Next you’re going to need to locate all WGA-related files within your \Windows\System32 and \Windows\System32\dllcache folders. Run a search for Wga*.*, and delete any WGA related results you find in these folders including Wga Tray.exe, Wga and Wga so that WGA doesn’t make its way back onto your system.I’d recommend allowing Windows to notify you when updates are available, but then manually selecting them yourself.Any change in H/W and frequent reinstalls (several times as quoted above) and for all MS knows you are installing this one copy of XP on multiple machines.
