What is victim of software counterfering


counterfeit: made to look like the original of something, usually for dishonest or illegal purposes.
If you're being victim of software conterfeit, that means that your software is illegal.
This error is very common due to Windos Genuine Advantage (WGA).
You just need a WGA remover to fix it.
You can download one from here

Software conterfeiting pls.. remove this


Click here: http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/RemoveWGA-Download-42782.html
Download that program.
Run it. It will remove the Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) Notification Tool, the one that says you may be a victim of software counterfeiting.
Don't worry, you are not in any danger. That tool (WGA) is another useless and harmless but annoying program that you really do not need.

I can`t go in my mail,I want to remove you may be a victim of software counterfeiting


HI,

That message ("you may be a victim of software counterfeiting") is displayed when your Windows serial number is being used by someone else. If your copy of Windows is legitimate, try contacting Microsoft support.


Take care,

Victim of software counterfeiting


You will have to go to Microsoft.com and relicense your copy of Windows XP. You can purchase a new key and see if that will reset the desktop or wait until the CD arrives to reaload it.

'you may be a victim of software counterfeiting


OK, This is a notice from Microsoft. The validation tool thinks your Version is a counterfeit. It is not a virus, but is still a headache no less. It will not go away, we can't shut it off. The only way to fix is to reload with a valid code or call Microsoft to report it. I hope this helps :)
