This may well be a bogus message.
If your computer has been working just fine, then I would first try to do a system restore back to when you didn't get the message.
I would then scan the machine with a program like malwarebytes which you can download free from www.malwarebytes.org.
If this is on a computer that is new to you, I'd visit Microsoft.com and look up counterfeiting or pirated software. There is help there.
Of course, if you installed a pirated operating system or program, you're getting the right message.

"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.

I can`t go in my mail,I want to remove you may be a victim of software counterfeiting


HI,

That message ("you may be a victim of software counterfeiting") is displayed when your Windows serial number is being used by someone else. If your copy of Windows is legitimate, try contacting Microsoft support.


Take care,

Software counterfeiting


Hello

It is the update kb905474 which came in as part of the latest updates.
It also installs the "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting" splash screen before/during start up of windows.
The removal of the hollow star is quite simple but there is no option of uninstalling the update(so far)
Read this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/905474/en-us

and you "can" delete(rename) this to get rid of the star:C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download\wgat ray.exe

Hope this is some help
