Tough luck, that's what you get for installing an illegitimate copy of Windows XP. You'll just have to backup your data and try reinstalling with a legal copy this time.


Installing Windows should not affect your other files, unless they reside in an area Windows needs for its contiguous files.

Also, he might not be the one who installed a pirate copy of Windows. An unscrupulous dealer may have done it.


Now that u hav a genuine key with u try to make use of "Key changer software" and enter the genuine key.... See if your system gets updated then.....


You can just register or validate your xp with new genuine serial key given. open microsoft website ......... and you do not have to reinstall it.
