    I am about to download MS Antispyware Beta and it says I'll need a 25 digit COA. Where would I find this? I have Windows XP Pro, which was already installed on my computer when I bought it used. I got no disks with it.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your quick reply. I'll check for the sticker, but if there is none, is there no other way to validate?

    not that i know of. unless you purchase the program itself. then that would have the certificate that you would need.

    You dont need to vaildate to download the Microsoft Antispyware Beta. Just click the button that says: You will not validate at this time and wish to download the program

    Second hand electronics store.

    And I DID download today without authentication. After I got to reading a bit more, I found that it was possible.

    Thanks both of you.
