If your copy of windows is legitimate, re-activate it. the deactivation may be caused by hardware changes, or virus activity

Microsoft article on activating windows (there will be a phone option) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307890

If you cannot get the activation to com up go to command prompt

Start-Run-type"CMD"-press "ENTER"
type oobe/msoobe /a
the activation process should start.

Good Luck, hope this helps

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,
Alex

If you purchased the software (you may need a copy of the receipt) you can contact microsoft and they will assist you in getting a valid key for your PC.

If someone installed the software for you, then you may be a victim of counterfeiting and the only recourse is to obtain a legal liscense of Windows XP.

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.

I have problem


windows is running in "limited use phase", the reason could be
  • non activation before 30 days of installation
  • pirated copy
the windows version that you're using is not a geniune copy. Please contact your computer's vendor if the machine came pre-loaded when you purchased it. Or re-install windows with a geniune product key.

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.

Victim of software counterfeiting


After installing your genuine copy of Microsoft Windows XP you are prompted with a “Your software is counterfeit” error message at startup. Even after visiting the www.microsoft.com/genuine/ site and validating, you still get the above message popping up after 2 or 3 boots. There is an easy solution to this and I would like you to follow the steps below to fix the issue.
1. C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files
  • Within that folder, remove any files or folders associated with .WGA
2. Safe Mode
  • Reboot your computer and as soon as Windows logs off, start repeatively tapping the F8 Key on your keyboard.
  • As soon as you see the Windows Advanced Startup options select Safe Mode within Safe Mode get yourself into these folders…
  • C:\Windows\System32 (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
  • C:\Windows\System32\dllcache (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
    Note: Dllcache is a hidden folder, to view hidden folders do the following, go to Start, Control Panel, Folder Options,
    Select the view Tab and under the Hidden Files option, select Show hidden files and folders
3. Safe Mode Registry
  • Click on Start, Run and within the open dialog box type regedit and click OK.
  • Within the Registry Editor navigate your self to
    HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\WGALOGON
  • Right Click and Export the WGALOGON Folder (this should be saved onto your machine for backup purposes)
  • After Exporting the folder, DELETE the WGALOGON folder
  • After deleting close all applications and Restart your machine back to Normal Mode
After being prompt of a successful validation, Restart your Machine.
