I have been the victim of piracy. My key no longer works. I have
come across this magic jelly bean key finder 1.41. It pops up a cd
key serial #. Is this a number I can use for Microsoft updates
purposes?

No. The keyfinder simply show you the product key that was used to install
XP on your system. If the Windows Genuine Advantage is reporting that you
have an illegal key and you are unable to download updates then you will
need to legitimize your system. See the FAQ here

Listen, this has happened to many many people. There are 2 ways you can
do this ( and in all honesty I support the first one because I have
never had to result to the second)

1. Contact Microsoft and explain what happened, they are pretty
reasonable about this and will set you right up!

2. (I am not responsible if you do this and HIGHLY only recommend it if
you have NO other choices whatsoever) Go online and find a serial key
for an OEM copy of Windows XP. Or get a program called "rockXP" and go
onto a computer that is owned by a big company (college computers,
larege company office computers) and grab that CD key and use it as
yours. But please only do this if you have honestly been a victim of
software key theft and microsoft has not given you any other options,
except to re-buy windows.
