|Greetings - I have a second owner, home created desktop came loaded with Vista. Yesterday I got a message to validate my OS because someone tried to perform an illegal operation. Or it may be counterfeit. However, I can't even get to the start feature to check according to their online instructions. It locks me out of everything.|
It isn't out of the question that the OS is bad because I didn't install it but I've read online that they usually give you a grace period and a reduced operating function to fix the situation. I got nothing except blocked out so I'm wondering if this is some malware problem instead.
Thankful I have a laptop to fill in the gaps with two non-working desktops!
Anyone have a suggestion? Thanks
