'Driver not loaded & Windows not genuine' pop ups

Thanks so much for your reply. However, like I said I'm clueless about these things. So where is this duplicate 'KEY' and how do I find it or as you say, re-load Windows within Windows? I realise this may seem pretty standard stuff to you, but whilst I'm confident to carry out tasks I basically understand, in this instance I don't know where to start. Should there be a programme or file I can go to, to start a re-load? Or are you saying without doubt I must purchase a new copy and then load it? Sorry if I seem confused or just plain stupid! Incidentially, the pop up msg appears as soon as I switch on.

Many thanks for your help.
Michelle

Ok,Let me put it to you this way.Lets say I bought a Windows CD and loaded it onto my computer.On my CD jewel case I would have a long key number that I would need to enter into my computer before I could completely install Windows. I would have three days to either call Microsoft and register my software with a call person,or I would have the same three days to do it over the internet. Either way I did it, my CD key would now be tagged to my computer and registered with Microsoft . Microsoft takes a picture so to speak of my computer hardware and would store that information with my CD key. If I gave you my CD and you used the already registered key and tried to register it, Microsoft would see that your computer was not a match to it's data base and would flag your computer as not having a genuine copy of Windows hence the "nag" as it is called.You need to get your own CD key using the two methods I suggested and register that Key with Microsoft.

After ez gig clone, windows not genuine message


To clarify, what you have to do to eliminate "This computer is not running genuine windows" pop-up after cloning your hard drive but you know your windows is activated: Get the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver from one of two places, depending on whether you have a brand name or generic computer, and then reactivate windows online. For generic drivers for all versions of Windows XP thru 8, including updates for December 2012, go to: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Software+Products&ProductLine=Chipset+Software&ProductProduct=Intel%c2%ae+Rapid+Storage+Technology+(Intel%c2%ae+RST)

For my brand, Lenovo Thinkpad T410-T430, for Win7 (32 bit): http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-74431
Don't forget to reactivate Windows, using your product i.d., or you'll still get the "Not genuine windows" pop-up.

Free victim of software counterfeiting


Microsoft, in a rather brilliant move, has released an update that checks your OS serial against a list of known leaked serials (corporate edition keys, etc). If your serial matches one of them then it puts a darling little message on the bottom right hand of your login screen, and also a system tray icon that nags you to buy a genuine copy of windows.
It will also pop up a dialog that says "This copy of Windows is not Genuine"
"This copy of Windows is not genuine and you have not yet resolved this issue. This computer is no longer eligible to recieve select security upgrades from Microsoft.

To protect your copy of Windows, you must click Get Genuine now."
Every so often a little balloon will pop up that says "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting." Below that it will say "This copy of Windows is not genuine. Click this balloon to resolve now." If you're working on a system that has this running it gets annoying in a hurry. What the time interval between pop-ups is, I don't know, but I imagine it'll drive most people to buy a legit key after a while just to get the thing to *******.
Fixing the popup is easy enough.
Reboot to safe mode. Open up

http://www.eradicatespyware.net/How_To_Use_HijackThis.html
and scroll down to the selection that says "020 - Winlogon Nofity: Wgalogon - ..." select that, and click fix checked.
You can also go and delete the actual executable that nags you. The full path to it should be (for most installs) C:\Windows\System32\wgatray.exe.
Reboot after this. No longer should you get the popups and that nagger as you log in should not show up either

Start Menu And Desktop Icons Are Gone The start menu and desktop icons are gone. When I right click on the desktop nothing happens. I have to do things with the task manager only! How do I get them...


Heya

First of all Start up menu and desktop icon doesn't appears because explorer.exe doesn't loads properly which is a system component file mandatory for the computer to load...Now the solution:-

Press CTRL+ALT+DEL simultaneously ONLY when you don't see any icons or the start up menu
Windows TASK MANAGER will appear.
Now click on FILE top left corner>>>NEW>>Type explorer.exe>>Click OK or enter

You will be able to see all the icons

Now the Software Counterfeiting problem..This happens when your copy of windows doesn't pass the Genuine test..Now this doesn't mean that the copy which your using is not genuine.Even if its not genuine i.e. pirated..there's a common solution for it.
Click on the following link to download and install WGA remover which will remove the Software Counterfeiting problem..

Did not pass windows logo genuine test


Just click "Continue anyway" and it won't harm your system as long as you perform a system backup. The reason why it keeps on appearing when you install your driver is because Logitech did not register their product to Windows Compatibility or that your driver is older. Check for the latest driver found at Logitech website.

Windows Genuine Advantage is telling you that your Windows product key is not a genuine or original key.The key that someone used for your Windows O.S is a duplicate key in Microsoft's data base. Microsoft deems this as piracy. In order for your Windows to become "genuine" you with need to either purchase a new key from Microsoft or purchase a new legimate copy from a retailer and reinstall it. Both messages are related.I think you need to reload windows. You may be able to load Windows from within Windows as you already have it installed. The new install will simply load what is required over your existing version allowing you to enter that genuine key.When this is done I think both issues will be gone.

This almost sounds like you have a maleware infection.
It almost sounds like the one that has been going around that claims to be Windows XP antivirus and that it found 450+ spyware infections (there is no such thing built into Windows XP).

I would suggest running SpyBot or Hyjack This to find out if you do have a malware infection.

Thanks to Window's genuine advatage update you will now have to reinstall your operating system with a valid copy. The genuine advantage checks the oerating systme for validity and if it doesn't validate then it shuts it down. The only thing you can do is buy a new copy of which ever operating system you prefer and reinstall it.
