Hi. you can try this:
1. Before doing anything serious try restoring your system. If the problem is occurring after the Windows Update then System Restore will surely help. 2. But if it does not then do try this, launch Windows Task Manager. 3. Locate the process "wgatray.exe" and end it. 4. Log in into the Safe Mode and delete the file WgaTray.exe from c:\Windows\System32 5. Also delete the WgaTray.exe from c:\Windows\System32\dllcache 6. Type regedit in Run to open Registry Editor, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify key. 7. Delete the folder WgaLogon and all of its contents. 8. Restart the PC normally.
Note: if you are not comfortable doing steps 3-7, please please get a computer expert to do them for you.

Want to remove you may be a victim of software counterfeiting


the message is displayed because your version of windows is not genuine. here are some steps to make your windows genuine
1 . start > run > " regedit" (without the quotes of course)

2 . Go to the key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WindowsNT\ CurrentVersion\WPAEvents\OOBETimer
…and doubleclick on it.
Then change some of the value data to ANYTHING ELSE…delete some, add some letters, ..just change it! now close out regedit.

3 . Go to start > run > "%systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a" (again, don't type the quotes)

4 . The activation screen will come up, click on register over telephone,>next> then click on CHANGE PRODUCT KEY, enter in this key:

JG28K-H9Q7X-BH6W4-3PDCQ-6XBFJ and give update.

(Now automatically window will return back to activate by telephone mode and ask for activation code,just ignore and exit that window it's done)


the only permanent method to remove that message is buying an original version and i do recoment that, than the steps above........

Sounds like you're running a black listed registration code. If you got the serial with your PC call into Microsoft to activate or purchase a valid copy of XP.
