Firstly if you have not done so already check with microsoft, a simple phone call may be all you need to sort out the problem.
secondly the following link to the "Microsoft How to tell" information site may also prove very useful.

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/content.aspx?pg=coa&displaylang=en

if it turns out that you do have a conterfit product code and you are unsure if the operating system CD/DVD that was used to perform the origional install, you may have unwittingly installed a numerous neferious apps, if this is the case you really should not be using the system for anything if you want your information to be secure. (if you use any online passwords these should be changed ASAP from a known clean system.

all is not lost however as the hardware would still be usable if you do purchase a valid copy of the OS, just make sure that the HDD is completly wiped before reinstalling anything (including any partitions you may have).

Victim of software counterfeiting how to rectify it


Incase you are a victim of counterfeit product of Microsoft then :-
  1. Purchase a valid Windows XP cd-key online from Microsoft.
  2. If you can produce high-quality counterfeit media, along with a proof of purchase, you can get a free replacement key from Microsoft.
  3. Contact your reseller for redress.
  4. Purchase Windows XP from a local OEM reseller.
  5. Purchase Windows XP at a retail location.
Notice the word "Purchase" appears in three of those five options. There's almost no way to finagle a free cd-key out of this.
Counterfeit software can come from a number of sources. It's important to use a reputable reseller when purchasing software or PCs that come with software.
And, now the good part :-
Microsoft also offers several options to help victims of counterfeit software obtain a legal copy of Windows, including a complimentary offer for victims who were deceived into buying highy quality counterfeit copies
To help customers who unknowingly purchased a counterfeit version of Windows XP, Microsoft has created two genuine Windows offers for those who qualify:
  • Complimentary offer: Microsoft will make a complimentary copy of Windows XP available to customers who have been sold counterfeit Windows. Customers will be required to submit a proof of purchase, the counterfeit CD, and a counterfeit report with details of their purchase. Only high-quality counterfeit Windows will qualify for the complimentary offer.
  • Electronic License Key Offer: Microsoft will offer an alternative for customers who find out via the WGA validation process that they are not running genuine Windows, but do not qualify for, or choose not to take advantage of, the complimentary offer. These customers will be able to license a Windows Genuine Advantage Kit for Windows XP directly from Microsoft for a special on-line purchase price. The Windows Genuine Advantage Kit for Windows XP will include a new 25-character Product Key and a Windows Product Key Update tool that will allow customers to convert their counterfeit copy to genuine Windows XP electronically.

If you purchased the software (you may need a copy of the receipt) you can contact microsoft and they will assist you in getting a valid key for your PC.

If someone installed the software for you, then you may be a victim of counterfeiting and the only recourse is to obtain a legal liscense of Windows XP.

Victim of software Counterfeiting,Problem


To temporarily bypass the problem you can do a system restore to a date before you started having the problem.
If that does not work, boot to safe mode after downloading and installing HijackThis. Start Hijack this software (utility to modify registry values) and scroll down registry entries to the line that says “020 - Winlogon Nofity: Wgalogon - …” select it, and click fix checked.

If you think that your isystem is counterfeit and you had been victim of a scam you should contact the person that sold you the computer, and then contact Microsoft.
See Microsoft Help and Support.

'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 :)
