today, when i trying to install IE7 its asking for the genuine microsoft validation. it goes for the validation page and retun with some error. after few more try its come with a msg that this product is not a genuine microsoft product. i'm using XP prof SP2 [integrated], after that installtion automatically aborted. i tried numarous times, but same result. is there any validation skip installation? like we can install win98 without checking the HDD with the option is now, how can we know that we are using a genuine microsoft product, cuz it seems after a few days, all microsoft product will come with validation requirement. PS: i have tried with another PC also, running on WinXP SP2 home. [i have got original XP Home CD, i have done SP2 integration], but result is same. if the original XP home fails to validate, then what about FCKGW series[XP serial, Prof].
