How to remove windows genuine error from windows7


Solution 1
Lauch Windows Task Manager.
End wgatray.exe process in Task Manager.
Restart Windows XP in Safe Mode.
Delete WgaTray.exe from c:\Windows\System32.
Delete WgaTray.exe from c:\Windows\System32\dllcache.
Lauch RegEdit.
Browse to the following location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\
Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify
Delete the folder 'WgaLogon' and all its contents
Reboot Windows XP.
Note: With this method, you may be prompted to install WGA Notifications again which can still be unselected.

Solution 2
1-Launch Task manager
2-End process WGAtray.exe
3-Quickly restart in safe mode.
4-Click start, then Run. Type regedit and click ok.
5-Click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
6-Click Software, microsoft, windowsNT, currentversion, winlogon, notify.
7-On the right hand side find folder WGAlogon and delete it and all of its components.
8-Restart in normal mode.
9-Go to c:\windows\system32 and delete WGAtray.exe file.
10-Next to it should be WGAlogon.dll, delete this too.
11-Delete from recycling bin and reboot.
This should have solved the problem but i advise switching your automatic updates to
"Notify me but dont automatically download or install them". This should advise you if your computer tries to download WGA again.
Solution 3


For windows XP SP3 users try this method
1 Lauch RegEdit.
2 Browse to the following location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\
Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify
3 Delete the folder 'WgaLogon' and all its contents
4 Reboot Windows XP.

Solution 4
Disabling and renaming the files 'WgaLogon.dll' and 'WgaTray.exe' in C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder by using the program Unlocker seems to get rid of all the nags/popups.
Solution 5
Another alternative suggest that three files are installed Windows XP System Folder for WGA:
\WINDOWS\system32\WgaLogon.dll
\WINDOWS\system32\WgaTray.exe
\WINDOWS\system32\LegitCheckControl.dll
The wgatray.exe process makes the check for genuine windows software. If WgaLogon.dll is denied execution right, that WinLogon is unable to call it to check on Windows validity and display notification package at boot, and since WgaLogon is also responsible for running and maintaining WgaTray.exe, no more tray popups either.
To change and disable the execute bit of WgaLogon.dll:
Turn off Simple File Sharing in Tools -> Folder Options -> View tab.
Right click WgaLogon.dll in Windows Explorer and open the Security Tab.
Click Advanced button.
Uncheck the Inherit box at the bottom.
Click the Copy button.
Click OK.
Go through each listed user/group and remove the "Read & Execute" permission for WgaLogon.dll, leaving the "Read" permission as-is.
Click OK to apply the permission changes.
Close the file properties dialog.
Restart the computer.
Turn "Use simple file sharing" on (optional).

I purchased a Windows 7 lap top. Is this printer compatable with this?


While your model is not on the list of compatible PSC printers on the HP website, you may as well try anyway. No harm and the 1200 is listed, just not the 1210. Good luck:)

Unable to install XP OS to MSI lap top


Insert your installer to the lap top then try to change the boot up priority by entering the bios. Try to press del key while your lap top boot. If these deosn't wok try F1 or F2 thesame process. If you have enter the BIOS, look for the boot priority which includes the First Boot, 2nd Boot and 3rd boot. Change the 1st boot to CDROM and the 2nd boot to hardisk. Then save the changes by pressing F10. your PC will reboot and it will direct you to the OS installation.

After reconfiguring my lap top's os, vista, I have no volume control installed.


Check your hardware device manager.

To access Device Manager, go to Start | Control Panel | System and Maintenance | System | Device Manager (Device Manager is located under "Tasks" in the left hand column of the "System" menu). A list of hardware will display like the one shown below.

Hardware you expect to find is not listed If you cannot find the hardware you expect to find, it is likely the hardware is installed incorrectly. You should power down your computer and locate the physical hardware on your computer. Verify it is installed correctly, and restart your computer. Once you have restarted your computer, Windows should automatically recognize the hardware and go through an installation process. You may be asked to provide drivers during this installation.
If you verify that the hardware is installed correctly but still does not appear in Device Manager, please contact the DoIT Help Desk.
A yellow exclamation mark appears next to your hardware A yellow exclamation mark next to your hardware means the device is recognized by Windows but is not working properly. This usually indicates a driver problem. Update your drivers by following the directions below.
  1. Right-click on the hardware and choose Properties.
  2. Click on the Driver tab.
  3. Click on Update Driver....
  4. Click on Search automatically for updated driver software.
  5. Windows will automatically look for updated drivers for your hardware. If unable to find any, you will need to go the hardware manufacturer's website and download new drivers.
A red X appears next to your hardware A red X indicates that the hardware is disabled. Right-click on the hardware and click Enable. Your hardware should no longer have a red X.
If you are still having problems with hardware after you enabled it, please.

Can anyone tell me how to get sonic update off my computer screen, i tried everything i could think of but it comes back when i try to cancel it, it says there is another program running that is updating...


Hello,

I assume you have tried the Add/Remove Programs routine...and didn't work.

A second solution is to disable the Sonic Update service that starts up when you computer starts. You can do this by going to Start, click on Run, and then typing in MSCONFIG and pressing Enter.

Click on the Startup tab and you’ll see a list of all of the processes that start up when your computer starts up. You can uncheck any service to prevent it from loading during bootup. For the Sonic software, search for any startup item named sgtray, or that has the words Sonic Update Manager or Update Manager related to the path your application is installed.
Also, if you see isuspm or issch, uncheck them too. You may also see something called “UpdateService” or “InstallShield” in the command column, make sure to un-check those. Don't worry about disabling an important process as windows will give you an error message, so unless you get an error, it is safe do do it. You can always check again any processes you need.

A third solution is to clean up the Windows Installer files in Windows. Sometimes they get corrupted and cause problems that translate into popups on your screen.
You can download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility straight from Microsoft and hopefully it will help you even if all of the above have failed.

Hope you get your annoying popup killed!!

I have a problem with uninstalling this alpha anitivirus it wont let me uninstall it everytime i click uninstall and it is not on my add/remove programs list and it also says that i have all these threats,...


  1. Check to see if the problem is adware or your own programs that are just lagging up your computer. Open the Task Manager [CTRL + ALT + DEL] and look at the processes tab. Find any processes that have an abnormally high Memory Usage. If you don't recognize their names, you may have spyware, however, you should not try to disable them in the Task Manager.
  2. Go to google.com and type in the names of suspicious looking executables. Pages like processlibrary.com or neuber.com are good at identifying malicious processes. [Note: some viruses disguise themselves as windows processes, it is well worth googling0 every process in task manager to find out which could be malicious]
  3. When discovered which processes are malicious, go to My Computer and search your C: drive for the executable. Delete the executable and any associated files. If an error message saying it is in use, stop the process using task manager and try again.
  4. When dealing with executables disguised as windows processes, search for them as described in the previous step. And if any duplicates appear in the search results, take CARE to only delete the suspect file that is not where it should be i.e. not in C:WINDOWSSystem32. When identified as malicious, delete the executable and associated files as before.
  5. Adware often comes 'packaged' with other programs such from places such as Yahoo! and Smiley Central. By not installing/downloading these programs you minimize the amount of adware/spyware you get. Delete these programs first.
  6. For all other Spyware/Adware download a free, easy-to-use anti-adware program like Spybot-S&D or AdAware. AdAware is a bit easier and is recommended for inexperienced users. NOTE: These programs will catch what the other misses so install both.
  7. Also there is free 'AVG free edition': "AVG" which is a free anti virus program, and should find any or most viruses and Trojan horses in your system, and that gives the same protection as Norton or McAfee, and that sends regular updates automatically and by request.
  8. Use a browser such as Mozilla Firefox, which blocks most adware.
  9. Also, Microsoft's Windows Defender provides real-time scanning of your system, and has a comprehensive definitions library that does an excellent job of detecting spyware.
If this does not work please e-mail me at kasey.fleming@hotmail.com for further help. I want to try and resolve this issue for you.
