Make XP genuine

  GBL 11:46 21 Sep 2007

I have a computer with apparently a non genuine copy of XP pro on it, I have a genuine copy of XP home, unused so far, is there an easy way, without formatting of changing this over?? I have data I do not want to lose and some forgotten pass words etc

have you tried ringing the number that M$ recommend.

It is quite possible that the copy of XP is genuine and the checking software getting a faulty reading.

No not rang them yet.

Yes give them a ring and check if you're key is on their system.
