After the "validate now" button it says:

We’re sorry, but we were unable to service your request. You may wish to choose from the links below for information about Microsoft products and services.



Is the problem with me or their server? As far as I know my ActiveX is working and it is not disabled.

are you using a dial-up or DSL? Did you try it using Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher, it should be!

Why not update first your windows patches. Start > Help and Support > from the menus on Pick a Task, choose Keep your computer up-to-date with Windows Update

Hi!

I have DSL connection via router. The Internet Explorer version is 6.0. I checked the updates what you have said, but only the sp2 is left, which I cannot do.

I tried the howtotell again, and still not working. What is it suppposed to do?

It is supposed to verify if you are using the ORIGINAL Windows XP and not the PIRATED.

I need that verification so I can determine if you have the legit copy or not. I will be unable to help you any further on this site if it is a pirated copy, as we have a strict policy we adhere to in only helping people who have legitmate copies of Windows. Thank you for understanding.

I do not know if my xp copy is pirated or not, it came with the computer. But I cannot check it, the howtotell is not working, and I do not have any documentation.

I totally understand your policy, and I find it reasonable.

I am very happy that there are people helping others, and using their knowledge in a noble way.

You have helped me a lot, and now my computer is working good again. The sp1 upgrade would be good for prevention, so as I said I will try to find out if my xp is legal or not and if not then buying a licence.

Good bye! :tazz:
