Question about Microsoft Get Genuine Kit for Windows XP Professional
My copy of windows did not pass genuine windows validation
Well I had tough time finding soloution for it, but found a way after going through many blogs, its obvious that we are not using genuine MS OS, but we can go for it to solve the problem altogether .The following steps are used to get rid of the Messagge "you are a victim of software counterfeiting" nagging at the desktop.Which happens to be outcome of Automatic updates "turned on" when you are conneted to internet.It worked on my computer and I dont have the message popping up anymore.I hope that you will find much help.
Turn off Automatic Updates
Clilck on START ->Settings-->Control panel ->Automatic updates (Select TURN OFF)
Goto My computer C drive select the folder ->Windows-->system32-->chek for a file WGATRAY.EXE (there r similar dll files named WGA * make sure ur selecting the correct one. The Icon is star shaped, similar to notification icon.This ICON would't delete).
Rename the file deleting the .exe extension and adding some number to filename (ex:Rename WGATRAY.EXE to WGATRAY22) make sure u remember the file name after renaming.
Delete the Renamed file (ex: wgatray22).It falls in Recycle bin.
Reboot the computer.
And chek there will be no message popping up on desktop !!!!
u might experience Black background screen, u can change the themes of your computer to different one from Control panel ==>display.(OR) Right click on Desktop-->properties-> themes
(I myself turned on Automatic updates to see any changes , it did not bring up any mesage later but not sure in future.)
Hope this article is helpful to folks!!!

If the Operating system came preloaded on the computer, you may have to contact the computer vendor for that or you may also contact Microsoft to report Piracy in 3 ways.
Method 1: E-mail email@example.com.
Method 2: Call the Microsoft Anti-Piracy Hotline at (800) RU-LEGIT.
Method 3: Fill out an online reporting form.

Mr. Heltar, the one Mr. ******* msmaniac told you will not help you, instead Mr. ******* msmaniac will force you to pay $50 (for XP Home) or ($75 for XP Pro) and I think you would not want to PAY THAT MUCH! watta waste of money!

This sort of issue takes place usually after windows updates
Therefore the best solution is to uninstall the recent updates on your computer and restart again.

Try this site to download crack for genuine windows validation:
or if it really worst and your computer is lock by the program then you can re install your operating system then after you finished installing your new Operationf System then diable the Automatic Updates by accessing to your control panel then click Security Center then Automatic Updates and click diable or turn off Automatic Updates. In that way you can prevent your computer from downloading Updates from Microsoft and prevent downloads of other Windows validation program.
