Windows genuine advantage notifications occur when your computer hasn't passed the validation test. The validation test can be failed due to being sold a pirated (non-genuine) copy of XP, or because you have changed your XP product key to a software-generated key, or sometimes it just happens for no reason at all. The failed validation installs three types of notifications on your computer: one on the log in screen, one log in timer, and one balloon. It also stops updates from Microsoft and disables your ability to install IE7 and Windows Media Player 11. This solution can get rid of all three notifications, even though you will still not be able to update through Windows Update. You will not be able to download things from Microsoft that requires a valid license either.

The best solution is to have your copy of windows validated online or over the phone with microsoft.

Take care in your selection, Ebay would probably be your best bet.

First try to do a System Restore.
  1. Open the start menu and click all programs.
  2. Go to Accessories.
  3. Go to System Tools.
  4. Then choose System Restore from that menu.
  5. When System Restore opens choose Restore my computer to an earlier time and hit next.
  6. On the calender see if you can pick a time before you started having problems. Choose that day and click next. It will run and should reboot the PC. It might take a little bit just let it do its thing.
If that doesn't work try this.
Open the My Computer icon on you desk top. If you don't see it on your desk top it will be in the start menu on right side of menu. Left click to open it. A window will pop up that show your drives (C:), (D:) and so on. Right click on the (C:) drive choose Properties from the drop down menu. The next window will have some tabs on the top. It will look something like this.
Click the Tools tab. There will be an option to Check Now. Click it and put a check in both little boxes and click the start button. It will say the PC needs to restart to preform this task. Restart the PC and walk away till it gets done.

Hope this helps.
Good Luck

Start menu and desk top

Can you start it in Safe Mode? Press F8 while the computer is booting. click on Safe Mode with Networking when the menu comes up.
When you get into Safe Mode, run you anti-virus. And clean your Cookies, Temp files and Internet Temporary Files. And while in Safe Mode, run a defrag of the C: drive. Restart the computer and it should start up correctly.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
