    i have a legit number from dell and it wouldnt work. do a search on google and there is a way to disable it and still run updates.

    I have barely naked installed now and it will not pass, even with a legit xp pro key. I can still get auto updates though.

    I also had a similar issue with my Dell laptop and the some updates.

    I found a fix that worked, before that was fixed...

    No. It's very, very easy to get around. Just google for the crack.
