This copy of windows did not pass genuine windows validation occurs on my desktop please solve my problem


Hello everyone


Windows genuine advantage notification is Microsoft way of punishing people using pirated copy of windows xp. Therefore, if your computer always shows you that you may be a victim of software counterfeiting, its right and you need to go and buy a genuine windows xp.

Windows genuine advantage notification occurs after you have updated your computer on the internet. Microsoft always runs a script that always checks for windows license . If your computer does not pass the test, that is when you are notified.

If your version of Windows XP is not genuine and does not pass windows genuine validation, you will not be able to download security patches from Windows Update, or install the latest version of Internet Explorer 7 and 8 and other software.
Firstly, you have to terminate the process form running on your computer secondly you have to change the name of the files that are running the process. Then change your desktop back to what you where using before.

OK This is How do solve it
notification message that this windows is not the genuine one

Right click on your task bar, click on task manager, click process tab look for the process with the name "wgatray.exe" right click on it and click end process tree, a warning message will appear click yes, the process will be terminated.
Secondly double click on my computer, double click drive C: double click windows folder, double click system 32 folder, look for two files, "wgatray.exe". When you locate the file, right click on the file and rename them to whatever you want.
Then restart your computer. Your computer should be in good state now.

IF your solution fix your problem give me thumbs

My computer is passing an information that, this computer did not pass genuine windows validation and asking for genuine Microsoft software.So how to deal with it?


if your win xp did not pass validation then it is on more than one machine.
if you have the original microsoft disc and you're absolutely positive it hasn't been installed on any other machine you would need to speak to microsoft.

A massage on my screen alerting me that a copy of windows did not pass a genuine windows validation


RemoveWGA will enable you to easily remove the Microsoft "Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications" tool, which is calling home and connect to MS servers every time you boot. Futures updates of this notification tool will (officialy) setup the connection rate to once every two weeks.

Once the WGA Notification tool has checked your OS and has confirmed you had a legit copy, there is no decent point or reason to check it again and again every boot.

Why am does this message "you may be a victim of software counterfeiting this copy of windows did not pass genuine windows validation" promptly appearing on my desktop?


It means that the copy of microsoft windows installed on your system in not a Genuine Copy (not original, duplicate copy). If you purchased it from a retailer or from an online store etc.. you can complain them about this issue. We can get rid of this notification, but it's not legal. So I don't recommend the method, but instead you proceed with the complain. I hope you understand what I mean.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Copy of windows xp did not pass genuine windows validation


The Windows Genuine Advantage program for Windows XP uses Windows product activation, validation, and notifications to verify that your copy of Windows is genuine. Using genuine Windows delivers better performance and lets you access all downloads in the Microsoft Download Center, while helping to protect you from the risks of counterfeit software.

Activation is an anti-piracy technology designed to make sure that your copy of Windows XP is properly licensed. It works by verifying that the product key is valid and is only being used on the number of computers permitted by the software license. Activation uses a simple and fast process to protect your copy and ensure that you paid for the right thing.

Validation is a quick process that allows you to find out if the product key you activated is counterfeit or has been misused. For example, you may have accidentally received a product key that was reported as lost or stolen by its original owner. Sometimes, during a repair or reinstall, an invalid product key is used if the original product key is not handy. Microsoft values your privacy and does not use information collected during the validation process to identify you or contact you.1

Notifications helps Microsoft to fight software piracy and helps to you validate that the copy of Microsoft Windows XP that's installed on your computer is genuine and properly licensed. It reminds you that your copy of Windows XP did not pass validation and provides resources that help you to easily fix the problem online.

By confirming that your copy of Windows XP is genuine, you can take advantage of all the capabilities, support, and continuous improvements—as well as the peace of mind—that come with using genuine Windows.

If the above things wont done

Go thorugh this link WGA Validation

Hope this will helps you

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.

Second Method

Another alternative 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 http://www.mydigitallife.info/2006/09/27/remove-bypass-patch-and-disable-microsoft-windows-genuine-advantage-wga-validation-version-157080-with-legitcheckcontroldll-crack/
Latest Update for WGA version 1.5.554.0 latest
Download http://www.mydigitallife.info/2006/10/08/crack-and-patch-to-bypass-and-disable-wga-genuine-windows-validation-and-notifications-version-155540/ of Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool and WGA Notifications.

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.
