I don't know who "Zylar" is, but I will try and help you with this problem anyway.

You are getting a message that you are a victim of software counterfeiting because your version of Windows XP Professional that is installed on your computer is not a valid, legal copy. Someone has installed boot leg software on your computer and it cannot be registerd as a legal copy for you. If you want to solve this problem, you need to buy a legal copy of windows xp and install it on your computer. When you removed the counterfeit copy the pop up messages will go away.

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,

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.

What ever you do,don't waste you time and get talked into by microsuc to pay twice for a key then what you can buy a legit copy for. But make sure you buy one. Just because gates is the richest
man in the world for there underhanded ways,and locking you into problems. Kinda of like thieves. Now just because there are a thousand company's who's founder should have 4 times the money then gates does,but don't because they where human and not thieves and steal ideas just to get rich. Still means that you need to buy a few computers because if the mobo breaks and you don't get it replaced with the same exact one you have to buy it again.

Its too bad that a company like ford that built this country,didn't
act like micro, then they would be 1000 times richer then gates.
Instead of going out of business and people with no jobs.
