i have suspected that something was wrong for awhile now because when i got a new hardrive installed last october, i havent been able to download any updates from the windows update site, i kept getting a message saying that my version of windows was not legal, or something to that affect, but every so often the automatic windows WILL allow me to update, but just not from the site.
so, i clicked on the blue gear and clicked "validation failure details" to see what my options were, and one such option was "update your product key".
is that how i go about fixing this problem?
i think the problem is because the guy who installed the new hardrive on my computer, also installed windows on my computer using an illigal copy of xp and didnt use my discs, but if thats the case will i be able to update my product key?
hope that wasnt too confusing, any help is appreciated
