see if that works

Your copy of windows did not pass activation or the number you tried using for activation is already in use by someone else. Either buy a legitimate copy of windows or contact Microsoft support.

How to remove genuine

Windows Genuine Activation is a component of any Windows OS build beginning with Windows XP. There is no need to remove it if you are using a legitimate copy of Windows. If you are not using one, you can procure one from Microsoft and stop using the pirated copy installed on the PC.
If you are using a Genuine copy of Windows with the correct license key entered into the activation component, you should consult Microsoft support for further assistance or post to their WGA forums.

You can only get a valid product key with an original installation CD of Window Operating System.
If you enter a product key of a different Operating System into into your current copy of Vista, your Operating System will be blocked, there fore, it is not advisable.

Windows vista basic activation key?

Sorry, you've come to the wrong place. If you have purchased your copy then it should be on the corner of the box or on the DVD cover.

Remove it from my desktop

It appears that the copy of Windows (your operating system) on your computer is not a licensed, legitimate copy. Either illegally reproduced or counterfeit. I recommend calling Microsoft at 1-888-571-2048. To the best of my knowledge you can just purchase a legitimate Key (serial number) for the version already installed on your pc and don't have to re-install anything. If you bought this computer used, does it have a Windows sticker anywhere on it containing a Key (serial number)?
