  1. When you put new parts in a computer and the Win XP has to be reinstalled and reregestered. How do Microsoft know you didn't just copy it to another computer, do you have to inform them or something.

    They decide and if you've changed too many pieces they won't re-register it.

    The judge's decision is final.

    So - you can't do it.

    I've worked with them before on this situation and found them to be very helpful...
    Don't believe all the horror stories. Do a search of the Knowledge Base articles , they have an 800 # just for what you are describing.
