    Sorry I wasn't online....

    It's not possible to delete that OGA, you can disable it...Please follow below.

    Hack 1: Disable OGAAddin.dll from Loading with Office Applications

    OGAAddin.dll (and OGAVerify.exe) is a few files that been installed
    by OGA Notifications. OGAAddin.dll allowed OGA Notifications to install
    as an add-in to applications in Office productivity suites to display
    not genuine reminder message to illegitimate and illegal copy of
    Office. By stopping the OGAAddin load behavior and preventing
    OGAAddin.dll from loading, the Office Genuine Advantage Notifications
    message can be suppressed.


    1. Run Registry Editor (RegEdit.exe).

    2. Press Ctrl-F to open search box, and search for OGAAddin.connect registry key.

    3. In the right pane, right click on Load Behavior and select Modify.

    4. Change the value data from 3 to 0.

    5. Repeat for each and every OGAAddin.connect found.

    With this hack, Windows still treat OGA as installed, and will not prompt user to install again.

    Hack 2: Disable and Remove OGAAddin from within Office Applications


    1. Run one of the Office app such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher and etc as administrator.
      Note: Open Windows Explorer, go to
      %SystemDrive%\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12 (may be different
      depends on version of Office installed and x64 OS uses Program Files
      (x86) folder), and right click on Office app executable, e.g.
      winword.exe, excel.exe, powerpnt.exe and etc to run as administrator.


    2. Go to Options (at the bottom of menu triggered by Office button) -> Add-Ins.

    3. Select COM Add-ins under Manage drop menu list, and click Go.

    4. Disable or remoeve the OGAAdmin.

    5. Repeat above steps for each and every Office applications installed.
    Let me know the result.

    Thanks for joining me.

    Have a nice day.

If you are talking about the Microsoft office 2007 ..this is a program and have to be removed from the control panel ..add remove programs ...like any other program ....BUT!< I suspect that you just put the problem in a wrong way and you are having problems with the windows XP operation system that got to update and the windows genuine advantage program kicked in and removed the desktop picture and placed an warning in the tray system ...and kinda made your day ....
In this case the bugger that you are looking for is not called like that ...
You have to make a search for a file named < WgaLogon.dll >
this will be located in windows folder ....in C drive ...in a folder named sys 32 ...
but if you will make a search from the start ....it will find it ...after that all you have to do is renaming it by changing a letter ...for example WgaLogTone.dll ....when you accomplished that just restart and all will be ok ...get the desktop background back ..and fix minor issues by the way you find them ...
Prompt me with the result please...!

    by the way ..I suspect is the same way if the problem is with office genuine advantage ...all you have to change is the file ya ar elooking for ...and try to find a file named OgaLogon.dll ..and do the same just change a letter in the name..and it will not proceed with the log-in and will not block it anymore..but it will still make problems until you get a license key that works..

How to remove windows genuine error from windows7


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

Solution 2
1-Launch Task manager
2-End process WGAtray.exe
3-Quickly restart in safe mode.
4-Click start, then Run. Type regedit and click ok.
5-Click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
6-Click Software, microsoft, windowsNT, currentversion, winlogon, notify.
7-On the right hand side find folder WGAlogon and delete it and all of its components.
8-Restart in normal mode.
9-Go to c:\windows\system32 and delete WGAtray.exe file.
10-Next to it should be WGAlogon.dll, delete this too.
11-Delete from recycling bin and reboot.
This should have solved the problem but i advise switching your automatic updates to
"Notify me but dont automatically download or install them". This should advise you if your computer tries to download WGA again.
Solution 3


For windows XP SP3 users try this method
1 Lauch RegEdit.
2 Browse to the following location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\
Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify
3 Delete the folder 'WgaLogon' and all its contents
4 Reboot Windows XP.

Solution 4
Disabling and renaming the files 'WgaLogon.dll' and 'WgaTray.exe' in C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder by using the program Unlocker seems to get rid of all the nags/popups.
Solution 5
Another alternative suggest that three files are installed Windows XP System Folder for WGA:
\WINDOWS\system32\WgaLogon.dll
\WINDOWS\system32\WgaTray.exe
\WINDOWS\system32\LegitCheckControl.dll
The wgatray.exe process makes the check for genuine windows software. If WgaLogon.dll is denied execution right, that WinLogon is unable to call it to check on Windows validity and display notification package at boot, and since WgaLogon is also responsible for running and maintaining WgaTray.exe, no more tray popups either.
To change and disable the execute bit of WgaLogon.dll:
Turn off Simple File Sharing in Tools -> Folder Options -> View tab.
Right click WgaLogon.dll in Windows Explorer and open the Security Tab.
Click Advanced button.
Uncheck the Inherit box at the bottom.
Click the Copy button.
Click OK.
Go through each listed user/group and remove the "Read & Execute" permission for WgaLogon.dll, leaving the "Read" permission as-is.
Click OK to apply the permission changes.
Close the file properties dialog.
Restart the computer.
Turn "Use simple file sharing" on (optional).

I weant to remove genuine microsoft software from


IF you mean the "Genuine Microsoft Software" notification that keeps popping up you can try this:

Following three simple steps now you can get rid of the pesky and sometimes buggy Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) notifications:
1. Reboot Windows in safe mode (hold the f8 key while booting and you will get the option to boot in safe mode) and then:

2. Open Registry Editor (regedit.exe) and search for wgalogon folder and delete it. You should backup up the registry beforehand, in case somethiong goes wrong.

3. In your windows directory search for files wga* and delete them.


You are done!

Now reboot back normally and continue your work. Windows Genuine Advantage will not bother you anymore.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++

IMPORTANT: This involves editing the Windows Registry. Make a registry backup by selecting "Export" from the "File" drop down menu in "RegEdit". Selecting a name to save the file under. Make sure "My Computer" highlighted in software so the entire Registry is backed up.

Never make changes to the registry without making a backup copy of it first.

If your system misbehaves run "RegEdit" and select "Import" from the "File" menu. Navigate to where you stored the backup of the registry on your hard disk and restore the previous version before you made the changes.

Hi,

Try to follow some of these methods:

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 suggested by dman 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 cracked and patched version of LegitCheckControl.dll with thanks to Danny.
Latest Update for WGA version 1.5.554.0 latest
Download cracked and patched version of LegitCheckControl.dll, WgaLogon.dll and WgaTray.exe for v1.5.554.0 of Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool and WGA Notifications.

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.

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.
