If you have a machine that has had it's WGA validation mess up. You need to reset it, check for any WGA updates and then retest the WGA validation. Here's a script to do it.

<vb>@ECHO OFF

IF EXIST "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Windows Genuine Advantage\data\data.dat" (

ECHO Deleting data.dat attrib -R "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Windows Genuine Advantage\data\data.dat" DEL "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Windows Genuine Advantage\data\data.dat"

)

IF NOT EXIST %WINDIR%\system32\WGATray.exe (GOTO END)

ECHO WGA Validation in progress. Please wait... WGATray.exe /b

END

ECHO Done</vb>
