Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
This message appears if you have performed a windows update that installed the "Genuine Advantage Notification". It is basically saying that your copy of windows is not a genuine version, and you need to get a valid Windows XP cd-key from Microsoft to get any additional non-critical updates from Microsoft. It is just a reminder and will not stop you from using your PC.
If you want to get rid of the message, you will need to follow the instructions to purchase a new key. Alternatively, if you perform a system restore to before you started getting the message, it should work for you.
To do a system restore, go to start, programs/all programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore. Follow the instructions on this wizard and it will restore your computer tho the state it was on the date that you choose.
Hope that helps
