    Default Solve Genuine Windows Validation update issue.

    Just thought I'd post this here incase someone is stuggling with Windows XP updates..................................


    If anyone is having problems updating their version of WinXP becuase of Genuine Windows Validation issues and you don't care to call MS and wait for someone to answer or type in a bunch of codes everytime you decide to do it, just disable Genuine Windows Validation from IE's Tools -> Manage Add-ons -> "Add-ons that have been used by IE" -> Windows Genuine Advantage and check "disable".

    Please note that this is not a hack!

    Where? I don't have a "Manage Add-ons" selection under the Tools tab and a quick search of the help files doesn't display this. Is this a SP2 thing?

    It's possible since I have SP2 integrated into my Win XP install, I wouldn't know what it's like without it.... Pic included.

    I'm running Windows XP Pro with SP2 v.2082 and I dont have the Manage Add-Ons in my IE Tools either.

    Anybody know why?
    Or do I need to install the Genuine Windows Validation software first?

    hi, it really works for my xp P_C, but how can do it with windows 2003?
    i have services pack1 for windows 2003 and Internet explorer doesnt have the Manage Add-ons menu option...

    How can do in under that Internet__Explorer?
    (Note, the javascript hack didnt work either)


    thanks in advance

    If you don't have the 'manage add-on' button in 'internet options' use this command

    In URL bar

    Before pressing 'Custom' or 'Express' buttons paste this text to the address bar and press enter:

    javascript:void(window.g_sDisableWGACheck='all')

    It turns off the trigger for the key check.

    For those of you who do not have the Manage Add-ons listed on the Tools menu, you can access the same thing from the Internet Options at tht bottom of the tools menu. Go to the Programs Tab and click Manage Add-Ons link at the bottom of the window.

    Same results.

    Mate, you are a genius!

    Thanks. I had the unfortunate coincidence where I installed the validation tool before SP2 also, thus was stuck in a dead end.
    I registered just to say that.
