Blank webpage with Windows Genuine Advantage

Trying to install Microsoft Security Essentials and it is complaining about not having genuine Windows? Attempting to run the Windows Genuine Advantage validation and you are ending up with a blank screen? This is usually caused when your Time/Date is out.

  1. Double left click on the Time/Date (Lower right of your screen)
  2. Make  any adjustments, make sure that Year/Month and Day is correct
  3. Click Ok
  4. Run the WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) validation again.
