I am a victim of software counterfeiting my

I'm sorry you find yourself in tis perdiciment. Software counterfitting hurts more than the manufacturer or owner of the intelectual rights, in this case, it hurt you.

You should have resourse through the vendor where you obtained this copy of Windows. Be prepared - some will say you are a participant and you knew what you were getting. Others may be more sympathetic. Depends on who and where you got this copy. Also, there is the issue of locating the vendor and proving they sold you the bad copy. If I were the seller (I AM NOT THE SELLER) I'd be long gone by the time you knocked on my door!

Microsoft has a program to get through this problem. It boils down to you paying for a legitimate license which should allow you to use what you have ... but ... if you are going to do this, you might as well get the real thing yourself at the store or web site of your choosing.

Thanks for your interest in

I hope you get this solved quickly

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 :)

Ask for genuine microsoft software


It appears you have been a victim of software counterfeit, just like message says. Windows cannot find your product number in its valid product keys database.

There are three possibilities:
  • you have purchased illegal Windows XP (you will have to contact Microsoft on resolving this issue),
  • you entered blacklisted product key by mistake (search on Microsoft's site on information how to change your serial number),
  • you intentionally installed pirated Windows XP (FixYa does not provide any feedback to pirates).

Your responses are intended to improve the level of service provided. Please rate your experience.

Victim of software counterfeiting

If you are referring to a message you got when starting your computer, that is due to your computer having an invalid key (not one given by Microsoft). When XP first came out, lots of "discount" computer sellers were illegally putting XP on computers with fake keys. Most likely you have one of those. You can get a free key from Microsoft if you can prove you bought the operating system, and where you bought it from. Microsoft will take that information and go after the place you bought it from if they're still in business. Otherwise, they do have an option to buy a legal copy.
