If it was WGA and it easily could be (generic license?) all she can do is got out and buy a real copy of XP.

When you say Ms don't consider your license genuine you'll have to convince them otherwise, or eventually you will suffer the same penalty.

As far as MS are concerned you are both pirates and they are mad keen on seeing you walk the plank, so keen in fact they aren't bothered if they judged you incorrectly.

I'm not mad keen on MS business practices but if they don't think you've paid for the lease on the software, why should they let you keep it?

They have the contractual right to take it back, they got that when you ticked the box on the EULA.
