Sound driver does not work

To install updates to win xp I used windows genuine advantage tool. It help to get all update for XP. But when I restart my machine it unstalls my sound driver. I think that drivers is not digitally signed as it gives warning while installing as "this driver does not pass windows logo testing.....".
I think the update to remove malicious software from windows removes it every start up. I don't want to install sound driver every time.

Can someone help me?
Thanking you in anticipation :-)

Says my windows xp did not pass genuine windows validation


Then your copy of Windows is not legit. Talk to whoever set up your system, or if you have a legit copy of Windows, you may have to reinstall.

Why am does this message "you may be a victim of software counterfeiting this copy of windows did not pass genuine windows validation" promptly appearing on my desktop?


It means that the copy of microsoft windows installed on your system in not a Genuine Copy (not original, duplicate copy). If you purchased it from a retailer or from an online store etc.. you can complain them about this issue. We can get rid of this notification, but it's not legal. So I don't recommend the method, but instead you proceed with the complain. I hope you understand what I mean.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Getting nonerasable warning from Microsoft!!!!!!!


Hi,

You seem to be a victim to piracy from your local vendor. You can report him to Microsoft and receive a finder’s fee, which isn’t going to cover the cost of new Windows XP. So here are some alternatives.
With new release of WGA, some methods no longer works, and some has been updated. Several methods that has certain success on certain people, you may try until you success.
Official Method by Microsoft - more information here. http://www.mydigitallife.info/2006/06/28/official-ways-to-disable-or-manually-uninstall-the-microsoft-windows-genuine-advantage-notifications-from-microsoft/

or:
First Method
  1. Lauch Windows Task Manager.
  2. End wgatray.exe process in Task Manager.
  3. Restart Windows XP in Safe Mode.
  4. Delete WgaTray.exe from c:\Windows\System32.
  5. Delete WgaTray.exe from c:\Windows\System32\dllcache.
  6. Lauch RegEdit.
  7. Browse to the following location:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\
    Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify
  8. Delete the folder ‘WgaLogon’ and all its contents
  9. Reboot Windows XP.
Note: With this method, you may be prompted to install WGA Notifications again which can still be unselected.

Second Method

Another alternative is by using System Restore to restore the PC to a previous restore point that WGA Notifications hasn’t kicked in, and then carefully stop KB905474 from been applied to the system. To use System Restore, go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore.
Note: Again, you may be prompted again to install WGA Notification, so it must be bypassed.

Third Method updated
This method involves using a cracked version of LegitCheckControl.dll to replace the original copy of LegitCheckControl.dll, and thus bypass the WGA validation and make Microsoft believes that your copy of Windows is genuine. To get rid of WGA Notifications warning messages, the patched version of WgaLogon.dll and WgaTray.exe to replace the existing files.
To apply the patch by replacing the files manually, try to end the respective processes in the Task Manager before deleting the existing files. Most likely is you will have to restart your PC in Safe Mode in order to replacing the original copy of LegitCheckControl.dll and related files. However, there has been automatic updater and even cracked WGA installer that automatically apply the patched version of WGA files.
Latest Update for WGA version 1.5.708.0 latest
Download http://www.mydigitallife.info/2006/09/27/remove-bypass-patch-and-disable-microsoft-windows-genuine-advantage-wga-validation-version-157080-with-legitcheckcontroldll-crack/
Latest Update for WGA version 1.5.554.0 latest
Download http://www.mydigitallife.info/2006/10/08/crack-and-patch-to-bypass-and-disable-wga-genuine-windows-validation-and-notifications-version-155540/ of Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool and WGA Notifications.

In the short of it, sometimes it worth to just get a legitimate copy so your problem will go away. Unfortunetely being the victim really sucks, because this will for every be a problem if you do any updating of MS software. If you look around (eBay etc) you may find some pretty good deals on Windows XP.

My best of luck to you.

A pirated windows cannot be made genuine in any way. There are patches that just disable the genuine windows check, but the windows still wont be genuine, and you wont be able to download certain updates from Microsoft.

Regarding performance there is no difference between a genuine windows and non genuine one. However non genuine windows does not download all updates, this can cause troubles when a software need the updates.



Always better using genuine Windows.
