Student version of Windows XPLocked
I have a user who paid for a computer that was built by a friend of his for home use. it has been a couple of years that he has had this computer. He only uses the computer for storing data on from his primary computer, he has never hooked it up to the internet. He believes that the version of XP is the Student copy and he is not sure if he was told by his friend if it was a legal copy or not. He wants to be able to hook this computer up to the internet and apply all the MS Updates and use it as a fall back to his primary computer. (his primary computer had the Windows XP Recovery virus). He asked if he connects the computer to the internet and XP is not a legal copy (which he hopes it is legal) will his system stop work or if it would just not apply the updates?
I have not experience this situation so I could not give him an answer, but i would find out.
