THERE ARE NUMBER OF METHODS BUT FOR YOU THESE 2 METHODS ARE GOOD

1) METHOD:-
TRY SYSTEM RESTORE.

2) METHOD:-
2.1) LAUNCH WINDOWS TASK MANAGER.
2.2) End wgatray.exe Process In Task Manager.
2.3) Restart System In Safe Mode.
2.4) Delete wgatray.exe from c:\Windows\System32.
2.5)
Delete wgatray.exe from c:\Windows\System32\dllcache.
2.6) Launch RegEdit.
2.7) Browse the following key HKEY_LOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWSNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify.
2.8) Delete The Folder "WgaLogon" and all of its component.
2.9 ) Reboot System.

3.0) BE HAPPY NOW.... AND NEVER EVER INSTALL WINDOWS GENUINE ADVANTAGE NOTIFICATION IN WINDOWS UPDATE OTHERWISE YOU HAVE TO REPEAT THE DAMN PROCESS AGAIN.

IN ORDER TO THAT FOLLOW THIS

START
--> CONTROL PANEL--> AUTOMATIC UPDATES --> CHOOSE THE OPTION """"""""""""Notify me but don't automatically download or install them"""""""""""

When u use this option whenver your system detects any new WINDOWS UPDATE choose the updates which u want to install... DONT INSTALL WINDOWS XP SERVICE PACK --3.

SOURCE: WHEN I UPDATE THE WINDOWS IRECEIVE THE MASSAGE YOU MAY BE AVICTIM

Is this your first time to update your operating system?

This message is a security feature of MS to detect the copy of windows is genuine before it let you update.

It may have been that you installed a pirated copy of windows. But if you are sure that your copy is genuine, contact microsoft as soon as possible and tell them the problem...they may give you a new serial key and instructions to resolve this problem.

hope this helps.

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.

When i restart my lap then show message you may be a victim of software counterfeiting. this copy of windows did not pass genuine windows validation


Hello

It is the update kb905474 which came in as part of the latest updates.
It also installs the "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting" splash screen before/during start up of windows.
The removal of the hollow star is quite simple but there is no option of uninstalling the update(so far)
Read this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/905474/en-us

and you "can" delete(rename) this to get rid of the star:C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download\wgat ray.exe

Hope this is of some help

dude,

your using pirated software. it will work no worries about that. you can not update it anymore. to update and be safe from internet threats you need to install genuine Windows XP.
