Question about Compaq Deskpro EN 6500+ Model 6400 CDS PC Desktop
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.
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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.

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
