First of you need to delete the wga.exe, to do this do a search for the file once you have it up in the search window, press control alt delete to bring up the task manager, find the wga.exe in the task manager highlight it, you have just a second to do this before it returns, so you have to be quick, click on end task and quickly delete it in your search window, it may take a few times to get it right. Once gone goto start bar and open run and type REGEDIT, when the regedit window appears you will need to click on the + signs browse to wgalogon you need to delete WGALOGON folder. Here is the path:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\WgaLogon

When done reboot the mechine and windows genuine software is removed, try not to download it again by turning off autoupdates and setting it to notify me option, choose custom install when it does update and uncheck windows genuine advantage.

Just insert the original seriel key

  1. Download Windows Product Key Update Tool (KeyUpdateTool.exe) from Microsoft.
  2. Select Run when prompted. help plsss - toolscreen1_en.jpg
  3. Enter the product key found on your COA where requested, and then click Next to begin the update.
  4. Once the update is complete, click Finish to restart your computer. When your computer restarts, your computer’s product key will match the COA product key. If this tool fails to change your product key to match your COA, contact Microsoft Support. toolscreen3_en.jpg
  5. After updating your product key you will be required to activate Windows. Once Windows is activated, you can verify that your copy of Windows is genuine by going to http://www.Microsoft.com/genuine and clicking Validate Window

Sir, ask for genuine microsoft you may be a victim of counter the copy of windows did not pass genuine windows validation?? s


It means that the windows that you are not currently using is not genuine, as for genuine windows, you have to purchase it, it also depends upon, like, if your pc was offered with a copy of genuine version of operating system or not, genuine operating systems are offered with a few branded desktops and laptops and otherwise if its an assembled system you have to purchase it from a software store which sells genuine softwares.

Remove ask for genuine microsoft software? - Solve this!


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.
