    I just updated my Windows Media Player today and after updating I'm asked to validate my copy of Windows but can't validate it. Please help!

    Why can't you validate it?

    I'm afraid mine is not genuine. I have XP Professional installed by a technician since I have no idea how to reinstall OS. What do you suggest? Can't play music anymore since I have no other media player.

    You have to buy a legal operating system. That's the only suggestion you'll get here. This site doesn't allow people to help with illegal operating systems.

    Unfortunately it doesn't matter. Microsoft used to offer a discount to people who had unknowingly been sold an illegal copy of Windows, but I don't know if that is still an option.
