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 :)

i think the operating system has been updated by u(knowingly or unknowingly) and the operating system is not original(pirated/cracked).
Buy an original one or use an oem version if u have got with ur machine.
The best method will be to format and reinstall the operating system and not update it.

Always check the authenticity label on any software when purchasing as claiming that it doesn't work or will not register when it has been opened, will not helps.

You may be a victim of software counterfeiting.


Whenever you get a genuine windows validation error you must contact Microsoft to find out why you get the message.

Temporarily you can get rid of the message doing a System Restore to a date before the genuine windows validation error appeared for the first time.

To do system restore you can go to
Start button>Programs>Accessories>System tools>System Restore.

Just click validate,enter the activation # and reactivate.
It does this if the activation file gets damaged,or if using pirated software.(if this is pirated software,you will need to get a genuine copy)

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.
