Hi,Can anyone explain why my genuine copy of XP Pro.wili pass windows update validation.
Which allows me to download software from the site,but when I try to install the software I am informed that I may be guilty of running pirated software.
This problem as only occured since I ran a system optimiser which I was assured by the computer specialist would not remove any windows components.Although this seems to the cause of the problem.
Please help!!! as a silver haired surfer,windows help files are somewhat convoluted to say the least.

"would not remove any windows components. Although this seems to the cause of the problem."

So let's assume that is the case.

Now run a Windows repair:

• Click Start; Run.
• In the Run box, type cmd.exe to open the command prompt window.
• At the prompt, type sfc.exe /scannow
• Press ENTER. If Windows finds problems with the system files, you will be prompted to insert your Windows XP installation CD to restore the files.

If no problems are found and the scan finishes, type exit and press ENTER.
