How to remove "ask for


Just follow the on-screen prompts to "get genuine", i.e., use your credit-card to purchase a license-key from Microsoft. Follow their instructions to install the new product-key, and those "Windows Genuine Advantage" pop-up messages will cease.

Windows 7 not genuine, copy of windows 7 ulitmate not genuine


The different ways to find out whether Windows 7 is genuine or not are as follows:
Activate Windows dialog box
Online verification
Offline verification

Activate Windows dialog box
The user can see whether Windows 7 is genuine or not by activating Windows dialog. To do this, one needs to go to 'Start' and open the 'Search' box. Type 'Inactive Windows' in the box and see whether the version is genuine or not. If the operating system is a genuine one, a message will be displayed stating "Activation was successful" with a logo of Microsoft on the right side of the screen.

Online verification
The user can also verify that Windows 7 is genuine or not by going to the official website of Microsoft and using the validation mechanism that determines the genuineness of an operating system. One may have noticed while downloading updates for Windows that the system asks for a verification to continue the download process. The user should always connect to the web using Internet Explorer and download updates only from the official website.

Offline verification
Another way of checking whether Windows 7 is genuine or not is by going to the 'Control Panel' of the system where one can find an option of system and security. The user needs to click on 'System' and go down to the option of 'Windows Activation'. If Windows 7 is genuine; it will show that Windows is activated along with its product details. This box will also display Microsoft logo to confirm its genuineness.

On the right hand side of my screen it says: "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting


Hi,

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

Sir my computer displays "you


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.

That my copy of the windows did not pass geniune windows validatn


Hi
Microsoft check the key of all windows software. If it fails you get the message that you have recieved.
If you want to get genuine, you have to pay Microsoft.
If you feel it is a genuine copy that you have, you have an option on screen to tell microsoft where you purchased it from.
If you do nothing, you will continue to get that message each time you log on and you will not recieve any more updates.
