You can get a little program to remove the WGA warning, and also to make that copy appear genuine

Well if you knowingly installed a copy from a friend or so then it could possible be a counterfeit copy...
However if you know that it is a genuine copy and you got the error message recently then contact microsoft, i have had this occur on people who actually bought there computer from a store, using "windows 7" but its the same technology used to detect the validation of your Windows so the system dont really matter, it would normally pop up after the update and then inform of a software fraud and a counterfeit copy may be installed and they had to call microsoft for resolution, they knew about it, but i never heard of it affecting XP.
Give microsoft a call if you know it is a genuine copy and they can resolve the issue for you...
Contact Microsoft. They will often provide discounted licences to

If you can show them a receipt indicating that you paid money in good

to reload with a valid code or call Microsoft to report it. I hope this
