I am getting a message "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting"on my laptop. Also the screen is black and no icons and start menu and shortcut icons are not visible on the screen. Please help me...


Windows validation software (Be it Windows XP to Windows 7) has deemed that the Validation Key (VLK) that was used to install your operating system was not legally obtained. If you think this is in error, you can use the Windows Genuine Validation site to check this. Just click on the Validate Windows button and follow the instructions.

Because the validation software has currently decided that your VLK is invalid, it has disabled many desktop features to make itself more evident. This is why the screen is black, no icons, update doesn't work etc etc.

If the the Windows Validation site determines that the VLK is indeed invalid then you have two options to re-validate Windows. One is legal, the other is NOT.

The easiest and legal method implies purchasing a valid windows license key. Simply follow the instructions from this page.

The harder, potentially frustrating, not recommended and certainly illegal method is detailed at these pages.

Tip

Where can I download Windows Vista?


Hi.

Windows Vista is a Microsoft Operative System, and cannot be downloaded, it can only be purchased, as it must be installed using a valid license number that can only be found on a genuine Microsoft certificate of authenticity.

The Operative system is the main resident software to manage computer resource and interface with the user.
Once installed, the operative system will allow the user to use a computer. A computer without an operative system cannot be used.

Other examples of modern operative systems are: Windows 98, windows XP, Windows 7, Mac OS, Linux.

Microsoft, that made Vista, does not sell the software directly. Vista can only be purchased from third party distributors. Here an example: purchase vista.

For this reasons you will not find any Vista download available from Microsoft.

Different versions of Vista where made available for download for testing purpose. This will allow you the download of the full Vista installer file, that must be recorded onto CD after downloading.
Here a download:Windows Vista Download - Softpedia.

The file available on the link above will still not be enough to install Vista if you do not have a valid version of Vista purchased or installed before on the computer. You will still be asked for a valid installation key during setup. If your computer is licensed for Vista, the key will be printer on a sticker located on the computer. The installation key is composed by 5 groups of five characters codes, like in this example: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx.
If you have no valid installation key, then you will need to purchase a genuine Windows Vista.

If you decide to upgrade to Vista you can check if you computer can support Microsoft Vista by using the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor.

If you instead have Vista already installed, and you do not need Vista installer disk, but you only need to download Vista updates, you can use the following links:

Windows Vista home page

Microsoft Windows Update

Microsoft Download Center

Well, free trial over. You may have a pirate or bootleg Windows Vista copy. Get valid key from the hardware or software vendor who charged you for both.
