Hello,

Apparantly it is what it says it is. What you have is probably not a legal copy of windows. I had a friend of mine have that same error and it was that he had taken it to a computer repair company and they reinstalled windows with a pirated copy.

You may be a victim of software counterfeiting. ask for genuine


This error message will come if you are using pirated copy of ur windows operating system. There are some registry files and patches available online to remove this message. Try using that but i would rather recommend you to go for genuine products to avoid such problems in future.

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,
Alex

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.

Genuine validation


you need a valid COA(certificate of authenticity). means you need a valid product key for your operating system. Once you have it, it will solve your problem.
