First when ever my computer is on, at the bottom of the right hand corner there is a black box that is headlined "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting. Then whenever i try to go to different webpages on the internet sometimes more often then not, a red box appears saying " Warning! Visiting this site may harm your computer!

Pls be specific. Windows itself is a microsoft software. Are u facing any kind of problem like on the bottom right hand corner of the desktop it shows any message like "U may be a victim of general software counterfeiting" In that case u will have to reinstall windows. And please make sure that internet connection has to be disconnected before u turn off the windows update from control panel.
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.
The only way you will ever get to get rid of that annoying counterfeit message is to install a genuine windows software, i.e. you need to purchase a unique windows software/CD for that pc. If you purchase the windows software, then during installation, in which you much boot from CD/DVD drive, you must select repair. That way all your documents will be preserved intact for you. The counterfeit message really simply is saying to you that, “look, this copy of the windows is actually owned by someone else and has been registered as such on Microsoft server.” Microsoft requires that each PC have a unique CD/software.

To temporarily bypass the problem you can do a system restore to a date before you started having the problem. If that does not work, boot to safe mode after downloading and installing HijackThis. Start Hijack this software (utility to modify registry values) and scroll down registry entries to the line that says “020 - Winlogon Nofity: Wgalogon - …” select it, and click fix checked.
If you think that your isystem is counterfeit and you had been victim of a scam you should contact the person that sold you the computer, and then contact Microsoft. See Microsoft Help and Support.
