Default Computers on Ebay

I thought i warn you people about an ebay store. 199Computers. I bought a computer off of them and 2 mounts later when I got a bad virus and had to wipe my hard drive the Windows Xp disk for my machine was an invalid copy. Do NOT buy from this Ebay store. You will regret it.

What a lot of companies do is load a corperate version of Windows Xp on the computers they are selling. They leave the old COA on there and give you a copy of Windows Xp for refurbished computers and no COA for that copy. Loading a corperate version of Windows XP onto computers you are selling is illegal in the United States. Microsoft doesn't like it So if you are buying a refurbished computer contact the company you are buying it from and ask if its got its own version of Xp or they loaded a corperate version of Xp.
