    WGA? (Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130))

    Greetings,

    I' new here so forgive me any indiscressions. My question is in reguards to WGA, the Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130). I am required to DL it to manually download updates. I have heard reports that the tool is flawed, so far just that it may say your version is not Genuine when it is. I'm wondering if its safe to DL or should I go elsewhere.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    There might be occasional problems with the WGA Validation Tool, but it works OK for the majority of people who have installed it (me included). I'd install it and see what happens.

    I too have NEVER had any problems because of the WGA requirement. Go for it!

    Oh, I wasn't trying to validate my copy, I know mine is genuine.
