There is a lot of cracks or patches or fixes that aims to bypass or skip Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) validation process, or trick the WGA validation results to be always genuine. However, these workarounds do not address the fundamental issue of the problem - that’s the product CD key or volume license key (VLK) registered in your copy of Windows XP, Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE) and Windows Server 2003 is invalid or has been blocked or banned by Microsoft. The following ultimate WGA Patcher Permanent Kit with cracks and procedures all-in-one package will convert and transform the pirated Windows operating system into genuine and legitimate OS when validate by Microsoft’s WGA, by changing the serial number, product key or VLK of the Windows with a valid CD key, and when necessary, apply patch.
Download WGA Patcher Permanent Kit (WPatcherP5575987.zip) (link removed due to complaint from Microsoft) or GenuineWindowsPatcher.zip (download removed due to complaint from Microsoft) which contains Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder v1.51 (keyfinder.exe), Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostics Tool 1.5.0717.0 (MGADiag.exe), wga-hosts-fix 0.1 (wga-fix.exe), and Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 VLK key generator (MSKey.exe or Windows XP Keygen.exe).
Extract the zip file.
Run the Windows XP/2003 key generator (MSKey.exe or Windows XP Keygen.exe).
In the key generator, under the Product Family, select “Windows XP Pro. VLK”, and click the “Generate” button to generate a valid and genuine serial key for Windows XP (choose Windows Server 2003 VLK for Windows 2003). If key generator doesn’t work, try to find a product key on web.
Note down the product key or serial that is generated (can leave the program opens). The idea is to get VLK key that yet to be blocked or unknown to Microsoft.
Execute Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder (keyfinder.exe). If you having problem with Keyfinder, you can use any other Windows key changer listed here, such as RockXP and KeyFinder Thing.
Once launched, Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder will display the existing Windows and Office product key in the system. Select “Microsoft Windows” tab (open by default), and click on Options menu, and then select “Change Windows Key”.
In the Change Microsoft Windows XP Key window, key in the product key or serial number generated from the keygen program in the boxes.
Click on Change button when done.
Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder will use Microsoft’s WMI script to change the product key of Windows XP. Follow on screen instruction to continue.
Run wga-fix.exe program. Click on Yes button on the ‘wga-host-fix 0.1 window’ to redirect WGA authorization and validation request to loopback address (127.0.0.1). Alternatively, open Command Prompt, and navigate to \Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ directory, edit the Hosts file, and add in the following entry to the end of the file:127.0.0.1 mpa.one.microsoft.com
Uninstall or delete any cracked or patched LegitControlCheck.dll, WgaTray.exe and WgaLogon.dll located in \Windows\System32 folder. You may also need to delete “Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool” located in C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\ folder.
Go to Windows (Microsoft) Updates or Microsoft Download Center to download updates or applications in which require validation. Install WGA Validation Tool ActiveX when prompted. (Note: If you’re having problem to validate Windows with MGADiag.exe in later process, you still skip previous and this step first or apply the patched LegitCheckControl.dll again, which means leave the patch and crack intact, and only come back to delete any crack or patch, and install original WGA validation tool later. This especially true if you have LegitCheckControl.dll 1.5.723.1 with MGDIAG.exe 1.5.0717.0)
Run the Microsoft Microsoft Genuine Validation Diagnostic Tool (MGADiag.exe), and click on Continue button to proceed.
Click on OK when MGADiag finishes processing and displays your genuine status. The status should show GENUINE, and not NOT ACTIVATED.

Shortcut to Genuine Windows without Any Crack
Unable to download the crack? Or afraid that the cracks of keygen and key changer contains virus or trojan? You can simply add in the entry in step 11 (i.e. 127.0.0.1 mpa.one.microsoft.com) into your Hosts file if VLK key of your Windows installation has PID within the range of -640 to -641 or any other volume license product key that is not blocked. You can try it anyway no matter what product key you used to see if it working with existing CD key without changing the key.
Note: This shortcut by using wga-fix.exe or manually editing the Hosts file should works out of the box immediately on Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE) 2005 and Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, and by luck on Windows XP Home, XP Professional and Windows 2003.
Simply remove and delete the crack or patch that has been applied in \Windows\System32 (LegitCheckControl.dll, WgaLogon.dll, WgaTray.exe) or \Documents and Settings\All users\Application Data (sub-folders “Windows Genuine Advantage” and “Office Genuine Advantage”)
Go to Windows (Microsoft) Updates or Microsoft Download Center to access Windows updates or download applications that require validation. Install WGA Validation Tool ActiveX when prompted.
Add in the “127.0.0.1 mpa.one.microsoft.com” to the Hosts file located in \Windows\System32\drivers\etc\ folder. Or alternatively, just execute wga-fix.exe (download link removed due to complaint from Microsoft) contained in the WGA crack archive package.
Run MGADiag.exe to validate the Windows is genuine.
After applying this trick or hack, Microsoft WGA Validation Tool will treat the Windows as genuine, as in you legally purchase and buy the Windows OS. Users can access to Windows Updates or Microsoft Updates, download WGA validation required software products from Microsoft Download Center such as as Windows Defender, WMP11, IE7, DirectX and etc, and also to install these programs with proper validation without any cracks. This hack or trick should works on Windows XP, Windows XP Media Center Edition (MCE), and even Windows Server 2003, and users can pick any browsers they like, including IE6, IE7, Firefox, Netscape or web browser powerd by IE such as MSN Explorer or AOL Explorer.
