Hi! I'd love some help/advice regarding messages I have just recently started getting saying that I may be the victim of fraud because my copy of Windows is not genuine. :confused:

I purchased the pc used from a local pc store about 2yrs ago. I knew it was a used computer and have not really had any problems with it, so it surprised me to be getting these messages just now. I don't know how this works with reselling used pc's and the OS that's on them, and I have not yet had any success with contacting the sales person who sold me the pc.

I'm wondering if anyone has any advice or information regarding this issue. I'd greatly appreciate it.​

This is the only fix and it is cheaper than purchaing it thru a store.

Microsoft did introduce a program where they would replace a pirated copy of XP if it was unknowingly acquired and you will find the details of that offer at this link. I think the best thing for the member to do is to contact Microsoft and they may be able to help the member out.
