    I am using my Windows XP for a very long time but now I am getting an warning message saying that I have not activated and that I am victim of counterfeit software but I already have a key as I have a Genuine OS.

    I recently got the warning message in my Windows XP PC saying I am victim of counterfeit software I am afraid now that it will cause a problem in future but I bought Windows XP OS long back with the Genuine Product key. Now what should I do?

    The reason behind this problem is you might have connected to the internet after a long time you got the Windows XP OS. So whenever you try to connect to the internet. Initially ther will be a check done from Microsoft that if youre PC is genuine or not for safety reasons. So as you said you have bought the Windows XP and used it for long time then for sure its just a problem with the check which is done by the Microsoft.
    Now the solution for this problem is simple. When you get that Warning message you see the option “Go online and resolve now” just select that option and do the check from online once again then the problem should be solved.

    If you are still getting the error after activating it online too, then the best thing to do is to contact the support from Microsoft to fix the issue that you can do either by going to the support page CLICK HERE

    actually its a genuine problem of windowsxp..........

    i think you have installed a 30 days version of windowsxp..........

    thats why the system is saying that you have to activate that version for your longer use of that..............

    so, dont worry there is no problem with that version..............but slowly your system gets slower to work.......

    so, you have to change your os to upgraded version of windowsxp............. immediately
