My compter be a victim of sotfware couterfeiting


Did you just purchase the computer, and it had Windows XP Professional "pre-installed"?
If so, the store that sold you the computer may have used a "counterfeit" copy of Windows, rather than using a "genuine" copy of Windows (which only cost them about $100).

Or, did you recently take the computer to a computer-store, for repair (such as after having a computer-virus), and did they reinstall Windows, again using "counterfeit" software?

Or, did a "friend" install Windows XP, using "counterfeit" software?

Follow the on-screen instructions, and use your credit-card to make an online purchase of a valid license-key for Windows XP Professional.
Or, purchase a copy of Windows 7, and install that software.

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,

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

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.

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.
