Windows 7: Validation runs over and over and over and over

25 Feb 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit
Validation runs over and over and over and over

Win 7 Pro 64bit SP1.
When I was running 32-bit I used the VM and XP. Now upgraded MB and OS to 64-bit.
Trying to download the files but the validation process repeats over and over.

Windows is legal.
Firefox 19.0
Cookies on.
Tried with firewall off.
Microsoft have never ever answered this quation asked by multiple people.

The validation process has some difficulties on any other broswer than IE. Use IE to download Virtual PC and XP Mode, validation should be OK.

Forgot that I "removed" IE. Re-enabled it and it worked in Firefox. Thanks.
