WINDOWS "Software Counterfeiting" Error !!

Problem:
every time i switch on the PC there is a message telling me that

"You may be a victim of software counterfeiting."

Solution:

Firstly goto C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files

Within that folder, remove any files or folders associated with .WGA

then Reboot your computer and as soon as Windows logs off, start repeatively tapping the F8 Key on your keyboard.

As soon as you see the Windows Advanced Startup options select Safe Mode within Safe Mode get yourself into these folders…



C:\Windows\System32 (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
  
C:\Windows\System32\dllcache (Rename wgatray.exe to wgatrayold.exe)
    
(remember Dllcache is a hidden folder, to view hidden folders do the following, go to Start, Control Panel, Folder Options,Select the view Tab and under the Hidden Files option, select Show hidden files and folders)

after that Click on Start, Run and within the open dialog box type regedit and click OK.

Within the Registry Editor navigate your self to

HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\WGALOGON

Right Click and Export the WGALOGON Folder (this should be saved onto your machine for backup purposes)
  
After Exporting the folder, DELETE the WGALOGON folder
 
After deleting close all applications and Restart your machine back to Normal Mode

goto www.microsoft.com/genuine

Get into the site above and manually re-validate your copy of Windows.
  
After being prompt of a successful validation, Restart your Machine.
