I cannot get Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130) to download

Any ideas please

All I get is file not download message

Are you using Internet Explorer or Firefox?

If using IE try setting your security settings temporarily to low.

If you're using firefox try using Internet Explorer.

One more point - is your copy of Windows XP legit? if not the tool will not download

I am using Internet Explorer.
Changing security level does not help.

Microsoft support suggests activex problem. I have followed their instructions by clicking prompt against
"download signed activex controls"
"run activex controls and plugins"
"script activex controls marked safe for scripting"

all under security, internet, security level for this zone, custom level in IE.

All to no avail

Hi problem resolved.

Turning off firewall and antivirus programs plus saving following on desktop as reg.cmd did the trick.

"%windir%\system32\net.exe stop bits

%windir%\system32\net.exe stop wuauserv

%windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe %windir%\system32\atl.dll

%windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe %windir%\system32\jscript.dll

%windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe %windir%\system32\msxml3.dll

%windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe %windir%\system32\softpub.dll

%windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe %windir%\system32\wuapi.dll

%windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe %windir%\system32\wuaueng.dll

%windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe %windir%\system32\wuaueng1.dll

%windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe %windir%\system32\wucltui.dll

%windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe %windir%\system32\wups.dll

%windir%\system32\regsvr32.exe %windir%\system32\wuweb.dll

%windir%\system32\net.exe start bits"

Should have added that you click on reg.cmd to run it
