When you get this message it means that the licence used to install windows is not genuine.

When this happen you are supposed to call Microsoft to find out why you get the message.

To temporarily get rid of the message you can do a system restore to a date before the message came for the first time.

Try this site to download crack for genuine windows validation:
http://depositfiles.com/en/files/2951056

 or if it really worst and your computer is lock by the program then you can re install your operating system then after you finished installing your new Operationf System then diable the Automatic Updates  by accessing to your control panel then click Security Center then Automatic Updates and click diable or turn off Automatic Updates. In that way you can prevent your computer from downloading Updates from Microsoft and prevent downloads of other Windows validation program.

There is not much you can do it you purchased pirated software. Below is a list of just about all you can legally do. Number two below is the only one that will get you a free legal copy of Windows.

  1. Purchase a valid Windows XP cd-key online from Microsoft.
  2. If you can produce high-quality counterfeit media, along with a proof of purchase, you can get a free replacement key from Microsoft.
  3. Contact your reseller for redress.
  4. Purchase Windows XP from a local OEM reseller.
  5. Purchase Windows XP at a retail location.

I'm sorry you find yourself in tis perdiciment. Software counterfitting hurts more than the manufacturer or owner of the intelectual rights, in this case, it hurt you.

You should have resourse through the vendor where you obtained this copy of Windows. Be prepared - some will say you are a participant and you knew what you were getting. Others may be more sympathetic. Depends on who and where you got this copy. Also, there is the issue of locating the vendor and proving they sold you the bad copy. If I were the seller (I AM NOT THE SELLER) I'd be long gone by the time you knocked on my door!

Microsoft has a program to get through this problem. It boils down to you paying for a legitimate license which should allow you to use what you have ... but ... if you are going to do this, you might as well get the real thing yourself at the store or web site of your choosing.

"You may be a victim


Welcome to FixYa!

If you're seeing notifications that the copy of Windows that is installed on your PC might not be genuine, or that you might be a victim of counterfeit software, it's likely that your copy of Windows was not properly activated or is otherwise not genuine. To fix this, click the notification and follow the steps to either repair Windows or-if you have inadvertently obtained counterfeit software-buy genuine Windows.

If you are using Windows XP, download and install the Windows Genuine Advantage Notification Application. It will scan your operating system and will remove the annoying message if it's a legitimate copy of windows.

Download here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/905474

Keep me posted.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Victim of software counterfeiting how to rectify it


Incase you are a victim of counterfeit product of Microsoft then :-
  1. Purchase a valid Windows XP cd-key online from Microsoft.
  2. If you can produce high-quality counterfeit media, along with a proof of purchase, you can get a free replacement key from Microsoft.
  3. Contact your reseller for redress.
  4. Purchase Windows XP from a local OEM reseller.
  5. Purchase Windows XP at a retail location.
Notice the word "Purchase" appears in three of those five options. There's almost no way to finagle a free cd-key out of this.
Counterfeit software can come from a number of sources. It's important to use a reputable reseller when purchasing software or PCs that come with software.
And, now the good part :-
Microsoft also offers several options to help victims of counterfeit software obtain a legal copy of Windows, including a complimentary offer for victims who were deceived into buying highy quality counterfeit copies
To help customers who unknowingly purchased a counterfeit version of Windows XP, Microsoft has created two genuine Windows offers for those who qualify:
  • Complimentary offer: Microsoft will make a complimentary copy of Windows XP available to customers who have been sold counterfeit Windows. Customers will be required to submit a proof of purchase, the counterfeit CD, and a counterfeit report with details of their purchase. Only high-quality counterfeit Windows will qualify for the complimentary offer.
  • Electronic License Key Offer: Microsoft will offer an alternative for customers who find out via the WGA validation process that they are not running genuine Windows, but do not qualify for, or choose not to take advantage of, the complimentary offer. These customers will be able to license a Windows Genuine Advantage Kit for Windows XP directly from Microsoft for a special on-line purchase price. The Windows Genuine Advantage Kit for Windows XP will include a new 25-character Product Key and a Windows Product Key Update tool that will allow customers to convert their counterfeit copy to genuine Windows XP electronically.

Ask for genuine microsoft software


Hi.

It appears you have been a victim of software counterfeit, just like message says. Windows cannot find your product number in its valid product keys database.

There are three possibilities:
  • you have purchased illegal Windows XP (you will have to contact Microsoft on resolving this issue),
  • you entered blacklisted product key by mistake (search on Microsoft's site on information how to change your serial number),
  • you intentionally installed pirated Windows XP (FixYa does not provide any feedback to pirates).
