-Error/Problem-
Fix:
basically its already in the error topic, but i posted it here, so ppl can easily find it.

1. use hijackthis to do a system scan only
2. find wgatray.exe (or anything similiar to wga.. service and check the checkboxes in front of them
3. now click on "fix selected" (make backup if you not sure if some wga is related to wgatray or not)
4. reboot.

if this doesn't fix it, then follow other methods i suggested in the error topic (listed above) and/or post a reply here with the problem and/or question.

Windows XP - how to remove genuine warning popup

Postby Sethioz » Thu Dec 16, 2010 11:09 pm

This tutorial will teach you how to remove this annoying windows genuine authentication warning, which goes something like this:

"This copy of Windows is not genuine you may be a victim of software counterfeiting.

who cares, only idiots buy microsoft shit anyways, rest just download and remove those annoying things they put in there.

1. go into "C:/Windows/System32/" folder
2. find a file named WgaTray.exe
3. drag and drop it somewhere else (like desktop)
4. press "ctrl + alt + del" to open task manager (you can use process explorer, which is much better).
5. kill the WgaTray.exe process. either right click and kill or highlight and press "del" button, then choose "yes"
6. now delete the file from desktop (or whereever you moved it to).

- MAKE SURE that you do not try to delete it from system32, because it never works ! you have to move it out of there
- If this does not work and it says that you can't move the file, then do this:

1. boot into SAFE MODE.
- reboot pc and keep hitting F8 button while booting, this should give you menu to boot into safe mode
- if this doesnt happen, then boot windows normally and while its loading, pull the plug on pc (if laptop, remove power cable and battery while loading).
- next time you boot, it will say that windows did not boot properly and give you the menu, choose safe mode
2. now when in safe mode, delete WgaTray.exe
3. reboot normally and you are done.
