New product key to install Windows Genuine Advantage Kit

I found out the computer i'm working on was not genuine so I purchase the
Windows Genuine Advantage Kit, got my new product key, went to download the
product key update tool, went through the program, entered my new product
key, and it keeps coming back that it cannot install. I just paid a bunch of
money for a product I cannot use! Please help !
