    windows validation

    just had WGA pop up on a few of our machines, the vlk on them is about 2 years old now. Once the new vlk is on they seem to behave normally.

    do vlk's expire? or is this part of the problem with the WGA updated i've noticed mentioned elsewere.

    Firstly, WGA sucks and gets it wrong regularly for a variety of reasons. However a quick manual visit to windows update usually updates WGA and fixes any confusion.

    But you shouldn't have WGA on your machines anyway. You should have a WSUS server doing your updates?
