    Motherfucking analshit!
    I just updated Windows Media Player using Windows Updater (It just wouldn't stop nagging, I just clicked something to stop it from meddling with my hamsterporn jerk session) and WTF? Turns out the copy of Windows XP I'm using, which was allready installed on my computer when I bought it on ebay (350 bucks for an Athlon X2 with a Geforce 7800 GTX and quality parts) was pirated, causing the updater to do nothing more than delete my old WMP and refuse to install the new one because the validation check failed. WTF?

    I'm not even going to write an elaborate insulting flamethread out of spite; I'm just gonna murder someone. Truly, I will murder several people, including innocent children, because of this. Are you happy now Microsoft? Causing all those kids to die unimaginably horrifying deaths because you wanted to fuck with my computer? Do you think we don't know your "installation" program was designed to wipe off WMP on bootleg systems? Why else would you do the validation check AFTER the installation and not BEFORE as sane logic dictates?
    Fuck you microsoft, I truly hope you, nazi-sponsoring IBM and Sony explode in a shockwave of debris caused by your congrated malevolence reaching critical mass.

    I've allready killed some retarted couple that knocked on my door asking me for the fastest way to the cemetery, and violated several small animals I found living in my mattress, now I'm gonna club someone to death with a live black-market dolphin.

    That is, unless I can someone fix this shit. I've got two original copies of WinXP, and would install them in a heartbeat were it not for the fact that I have too much shit installed (170+ Gig of program files) allready to give up. I don't trust that crappy "File transfer wizard" WinXP provides to safely preserve my program files eighter. Knowing microsoft, it's probably programmed to track down your most-opened files, and delete them, just for the hell of it.
    Perhaps there is some kind of crack I can use to override the authenticity check? I googled and did find some confirmation that such a crack exists, but there's much ambiguity out there on wether or not MS fixed the latest crack or not.

    Can anyone lighten the burden of my predicament by giving me some advice on solving this unfortunate situation?



    UPDATE: Crap. Turns out murder is illegal in my state. And that retarded couple survived somehow, presumably because they were retarded. Ah well, atleast the "animals" in my mattress are dead. Tonight, I won't have to sleep in the dishwasher!

    well there are many was to bypass the validation check. One i know of involves a registry key you run before the validation check which basicly tell the computer itt has passed teh check. i will try to find it again but i dont know if it will work a i havent used xp in a while.

    You can get keygenerator (mskey or Windows XP Keygen) and then use RockXP4 to change your current windows serial number. It works 100% coz I did it myself and I downloaded WMP 11 and Windows Defender no problem.

    Be careful with the keygens though, coz a lot of the downloads are infected and iot took me ages to find a clean download (Touché Microsoft!)

    It's strange that it asked for validation after removal. Mine asked me about validation before hand so I just keep telling it to go away. Not that I have any trouble verifying or anything, imma good girl, mmhmm, lalala.

    Thanks for the tips guys!

    Looneyboy here isn't that crazy afterall - he solved my problem!
    It just so happens that he was just down at MS' Redmond HQ when he read this with a machinegun loaded with Depleted Uranium with the intent of gunning down Bill Gates for "using telekinesis to turn my Vista Windows transparant while I'm researching brainmedicines", and forced some tech guy at gunpoint to remotely activate my acount.
    And now, he's dead.


    At any rate, the problem is solved.

    I have a legit copy of XP corporate here and while it worked for a long time under their validation program a few months back it decided it was now a pirated version. Thankfully I was trying to just install a service pack and not WMP because it checked first and wouldn't let me download the damn thing. Sadly it seems to have flagged my registry or whatever so now I can't get updates to my machine so I'm pretty pissed over it.

    SO yah, the automat with depleted uranium shells sounds fairly tempting right about now too now that you reminded me of that fact.

    OR we could just learn from this experience. Never trust Microsoft, or any of their products ever again. In fact, if you even get an inkling of trusting one of their products, slap yourself. With a tunafish.

    Yeah, I really hate windows updates n shit.
    so much so I never download them from microsoft anymore, they always do a whole lot of shit they don't tell you, it's much better downloading edited updates.

    and I fucking hate windows media player 11 so god damn much, I edited all the tags on my MP3s, but if WMP11 even sees those MP3's it searches the internet for better tags and fuckin changes them without even asking me.

    What version of Windows are you using .TakaM? Because in Vista, my WMP11 doesnt edit the tags without telling me. Also where would one find those edited updates?

    The first time I installed WMP11 it did that to me. I was looking around my music folders and they started disappearing and renaming and I was thinking HOLY SHIT WTF.

    In WMP, Check Tools->Options->Library->the bottom box. The first checkbox is controls the tag changing, second is filename, third is file position/folder.

    WMP can fuck off (though it is useful in a pinch).

    One, you can turn off windows update completely or to an extent that it won't bother you (just remember to update at least).

    Two, usually when the dialog box is open, choose custom install and un-check the ones you do not want installed (though it seems you did not do this as the popups were understandably annoying) which prevents it from showing up as an update, ever.
