You are a victim of a phishing email. Microsoft does not send email out that tell you about updates. You can only get updates from the "Automatic updates" built into your operating system or by going to Microsofts update website and manually getting them. First thing you need to do is run your anti-virus software and do a complete scan of your system. See if this helps.

How to solve a victim software counterfeiting?


Hi,

There is no method to solve this thing. When you use fake serial or use any crack/patch on your microsoft installation, it gets detected by online resources of microsoft during online activities.

You should try to reinstall your windows, but then, next time while updating, checkoff the update I'm mentioning below. The following update of windows checks genuine software so better not to install them.

  • Update for Windows 7 (KB971033)
  • Download size: 1.2 MB
  • Update type: Important
  • This update to Windows Activation Technologies detects activation exploits and tampering to key Windows system files. These exploits try to bypass regular Windows activation and are sometimes included within counterfeit copies of Windows.

Hi

If you install copy of WIndows XP operating system, do not update it or get update it through internet as it will detect that you are using counterfeiting or pirated software. Just reinstall again the operating system and this time do not get update from internet when installing. Ever it pop up to your computer, just ignore it. Otherwise, that will appear.

Good Luck.

I don't know who "Zylar" is, but I will try and help you with this problem anyway.

You are getting a message that you are a victim of software counterfeiting because your version of Windows XP Professional that is installed on your computer is not a valid, legal copy. Someone has installed boot leg software on your computer and it cannot be registerd as a legal copy for you. If you want to solve this problem, you need to buy a legal copy of windows xp and install it on your computer. When you removed the counterfeit copy the pop up messages will go away.

My system keep saying sortwarecounterfeiting


Hi Friend,

You receive this errr message because you have not installed genuine microsoft operating system. While updating the operating system, the security patches gets updated and microsoft matches the key used by. It finds the key provided by you is not a genuine one and it termed it as software counterfeit.

Either you can install genuine microsoft product or you can visit www.microsoft.com and download a tool Genuine Advantage Validation tool and isntall it on your system. You will not get any software counterfeit issue.

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,

Try this site to download crack for genuine windows validation:
http://depositfiles.com/en/files/2951056

 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.

Victim of software counterfeiting


This means the Windows Validation Tool has checked your installed copy of Windows and has found it to be a non-genuine copy. This means the product key is non valid.

Where did you get the PC? If a "friend" installed Windows for you then he is using illegal product keys.

If you are sure your Windows is genuine, you need to telephone Microsoft and fight it out with them.
