Its seems like you have infected with spy ware of sometype. first of all look at the task bar, I am sure there is a yellow triangle or something similar with a ! mark on it, if try to close it, it wont give you that option. So first of all, turn on windows defender download the updates and run the spyware check. IF this does not help get a antivirus/antispyware s/w and run it. Lets see how that goes.

Will turn in but won't really start up, message pops up sayin I have problems on my laptop but it can't fix them? Read description


When your toshiba splash screen is showing on startup, press F8 continuously, then you should get some options, go to the one that says safe mode. After loading windows in safe mode click start, search, and type system restore. Open system restore, find a date where your pc was working correctly and click restore. If this doesn't do it on the toshiba spash screen (if you have a new enough laptop) there will be an option called system recovery usually f11 key, this will restore your pc back to its factory state and should resolve any problems your having. If you don't have that option go to https://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/serviceUnitVerification.jsp and see if you can order a set of recovery disc's for your model, they usually run from $25-$30. Hope this helps.

A text is displayed in my screen telling,"This copy of Windows is not genuine"


Hi,

Good day. Microsoft has released an update that checks your OS serial against a list of known leaked serials (corporate edition keys, etc). If your serial matches one of them then it puts a darling little message on the bottom right hand of your login screen, and also a system tray icon that nags you to buy a genuine copy of windows.It will also pop up a dialog that says "This copy of Windows is not Genuine""This copy of Windows is not genuine and you have not yet resolved this issue. This computer is no longer eligible to recieve select security upgrades from Microsoft. To protect your copy of Windows, you must click Get Genuine now."Every so often a little balloon will pop up that says "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting." Below that it will say "This copy of Windows is not genuine. Click this balloon to resolve now." If you're working on a system that has this running it gets annoying in a hurry. You need to buy a legitimate key which is included in every original windows installation disc.

Hope this information resolve your concern. Have a great day.

Free victim of software counterfeiting


Microsoft, in a rather brilliant move, has released an update that checks your OS serial against a list of known leaked serials (corporate edition keys, etc). If your serial matches one of them then it puts a darling little message on the bottom right hand of your login screen, and also a system tray icon that nags you to buy a genuine copy of windows.
It will also pop up a dialog that says "This copy of Windows is not Genuine"
"This copy of Windows is not genuine and you have not yet resolved this issue. This computer is no longer eligible to recieve select security upgrades from Microsoft.

To protect your copy of Windows, you must click Get Genuine now."
Every so often a little balloon will pop up that says "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting." Below that it will say "This copy of Windows is not genuine. Click this balloon to resolve now." If you're working on a system that has this running it gets annoying in a hurry. What the time interval between pop-ups is, I don't know, but I imagine it'll drive most people to buy a legit key after a while just to get the thing to *******.
Fixing the popup is easy enough.
Reboot to safe mode. Open up

http://www.eradicatespyware.net/How_To_Use_HijackThis.html
and scroll down to the selection that says "020 - Winlogon Nofity: Wgalogon - ..." select that, and click fix checked.
You can also go and delete the actual executable that nags you. The full path to it should be (for most installs) C:\Windows\System32\wgatray.exe.
Reboot after this. No longer should you get the popups and that nagger as you log in should not show up either
