Hello sanaejaz28
Probably your software is not genuine . You need to buy a valid key that is no more available at Microsoft's . You can purchase an install disc at one of these places and use the key to validate your XP OS :

I AM HAVING WINDOWS XP WITH SERVICE PACK 3 BUT THIS COPY OF WINDOWS DOES NOT PAS FROM GENUINe windows validation what should i do? plz help me because notification is coming that you may be a victim of...


I understand. Microsoft has cracked down on tracking software that are installed in computers by requiring a validationg of your install operating software.

Since the XP operating system was installed on the computer when you purchased the system. Who ever sold you the computer must provide the CD key for your XP software. This CD key is five groups of numbers and letters you must enter to send to Microsoft to validtae your XP software.

Hope this information will give you what you need to validate your XP software.

Good Luck

How to solve "you may be a victim of software counterfieting"

The Solution is simple, Just purchase the licensed version of windows, otherwise you will be committing the crime of SW piracy.

Temporarily you can get rid of the message, just uninstalling the Genuine verification patch from control panel.

Windows XP displays "you may be victim of software counterfiet"

Go to Windows Explorer - do a search using the following string wga*.* (I think you will be directed to System32) - rename the files found as wgaxxxx.old (where xxx is the extra letters)

This will stop the nag screens.

Good luck.
