The software counterfeiting mean that the copy of Windows that you have has been pirated. It means that whoso ever sold you the Windows DVD or CD used illegal methods to copy from a single original Microsoft Disk and sold them to a very cheap and more ingeniously with a price tag of the original one without any authorization from Microsoft. Always purchase Software directly from Company or its authorized dealers. If you have purchased from it from Internet than its very difficult some times impossible to catch the crooks. If a local shop sold you than you might be lucky going back and having the claim for rebate.
Microsoft has devised a powerful test to check the genuineness of software online. They call it "Genuine Windows Validation" once you fail it your are denied for getting any goodies like software or tools you might be looking for on Microsoft site.

Good Luck!

If not,means that you are using a pirated version,then you will have to reinstall your windows

My windows xp software


If you find the message :

"You may have been a victim of software coounterfeiting.

This copy of Window did not pass genuine Windows validation.

Ask for genuine microsooft software."

That means that your system is counterfeit

If the system is counterfeit I cannot help you because of Fixya policies on piracy.

If it is not, I can tell you that you can get rid of the problem doing a system restore to a date before you started getting the message.
