Buy or install a NON illegal version of Microsoft Windows XP Pro or...

These notifications start coming back again after some time and do not feel good. Though I never encourage piracy but here is how you can remove this problem:
1. Before doing anything serious try restoring your system. If the problem is occurring after the Windows Update then System Restore will surely help.
2. But if it does not then do try this, launch Windows Task Manager.
3. Locate the process "wgatray.exe" and end it.
4. Log in into the Safe Mode and delete the file WgaTray.exe from c:\Windows\System32
5. Also delete the WgaTray.exe from c:\Windows\System32\dllcache
6. Type regedit in Run to open Registry Editor, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify key.
7. Delete the folder WgaLogon and all of its contents.
8. Restart the PC normally.

Why a icon shown you may be a victim of software counterfeiting

Was you copy a TRIAL copy the was install in your computer at the time of purchase? And as far as the desktop wallpaper, was it a picture that you worked with from something like Pulisher in the Office Pro Suite...I am thinking if the office program is stopped (end of the trial period) that other things may also stop working that were made using the programs contained therein. AH! but we have one for you. Download and Install OpenOffice, it is a total suite of programs that look like, work like, and are totally conpatible with MS Office. For FREE...I have used this program and it is totally wonderful, and did I mention for free. If you can use that office you can use OpenOffice, it is not a trial, it will not stop working for you...anyway try it...over 50,000,000 copies in use in the US with 139,000,000 hits on their site to is the link:
