Sounds like you got a pirated version of Windows installed on your computer. If you think it's a mistake and you have an original version of Windows installed, try communicating with Microsoft and let them know about your problem. You can also try to restore your system to a date previous to when the message started showing up. Also, disable the automatic updates for Windows so that the message won't show up again. If you're not using an original Windows copy, you will get the message whenever the Operative System updates to a certain new version that checks the validity of your OS. You could also try to disable the MGADT (Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnose Tool) from your computer and don't download it whenever you make an update in the system. (NOTE: removing the MGADT might be difficult if you don't know how to manage the registers in your OS, if you know how to then go ahead with any method provided in the internet, however, if you're not sure about it, DO NOT do it, you could mess up your computer and lose your information in it)

I just reformat my pc from someone i know..it was fine when after 2 days a message telling im might be a victim of counterfeit software and yet validation is a failure everytime i validate it.how can i...


This is due to the Product Key that has been entered is fake or invalid. The operting system will not tell you if it is a real key until the activation is attempted. I would suggest gaining a valid geniune copy of Microsoft Windows XP to remove the counterfit software icon.

I am a victim of software counterfeiting


The only way you will ever get to get rid of that annoying counterfeit message is to install a genuine windows software, i.e. you need to purchase a unique windows software/CD for that pc. If you purchase the windows software, then during installation, in which you much boot from CD/DVD drive, you must select repair. That way all your documents will be preserved intact for you. The counterfeit message really simply is saying to you that, “look, this copy of the windows is actually owned by someone else and has been registered as such on Microsoft server.” Microsoft requires that each PC have a unique CD/software.

You will have to go to Microsoft.com and relicense your copy of Windows XP. You can purchase a new key and see if that will reset the desktop or wait until the CD arrives to reaload it.

This means the Windows Validation Tool has checked your installed copy of Windows and has found it to be a non-genuine copy. This means the product key is non valid.

Where did you get the PC? If a "friend" installed Windows for you then he is using illegal product keys.

If you are sure your Windows is genuine, you need to telephone Microsoft and fight it out with them.
