Good Day

For the past two days, I'm a DC voltage that is given by my operating system.

After the latest windows updates, I am continually receiving some Popups and hollows that are saying,

'You may be a victim of software counterfeiting'. Then say ' this copy of Windows is not genuine. Click this balloon to resolve now '.

Also show an error saying

This computer is no longer eligible to receive select security upgrades from Microsoft

This copy of Windows is not genuine

This copy of windows is not genuine, and you have not yet resolved this issue. This computer is no longer eligible to receive select security upgrades from Microsoft.

To protect your copy of Windows, you must click Get Genuine New.

Resolve Later                                     Get Genuine

I am using windows XP and service pack 3 and updates until last week settled on it. I don't want to spend money on this error. So please guide me, how to get rid of this error which makes my virtual life in pain.

Thank you!

Good evening,

  • This error which is showing up is actually “Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) notification”. It can happen if your copy of Windows XP is not genuine. As it is happening after your recent update, it is possible that the WGA notification tool was installed with that update. If you want to remove this problem in an authentic way then you may buy a genuine copy of Windows XP. If you do not want to spend any money you can use a small tool called RemoveWGA  to get rid of this problem.

Hello,

Please do the followings to solve your problem of your computer

  • Restart your computer and go into safe mood. ( If you are not sure about going to safe mood, just restart the computer and continue pressing F8 while rebooting and you will get the option to go to safe mood.
  • Once you in the safe mood, non-essential programs will not run, including WgaTray.exe (the Windows Genuine Advantage program).
  • Then go to C:WindowsSystem32.exe and locate and delete WgaTray.exe.
  • Reboot your computer and you are done.

Hope this will work.
