Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
Microsoft xp professional
After installing your genuine copy of Microsoft Windows XP you are prompted with a “Your software is counterfeit” error message at startup. Even after visiting the www.microsoft.com/genuine/ site and validating, you still get the above message popping up after 2 or 3 boots. There is an easy solution to this and I would like you to follow the steps below to fix the issue.
1. C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files
Note: 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

Go to Drive where the folder window is located. Click windows. Click system32. Look for WGAlogon and WGAtray. Rename them with WGAlogon1 and WGAtray1. Then click Ctrl +Alt, Delete for Task Manager. Click the tab Processes. Highlight for WGAlgon then click end process. Restart your computer. Then change the black screen with the wallpaper you want. Everything will be normal then.

for windows xp you can use this tool to remove the anoying messages
Note that your windows will still be the same, if you want to solve all related problems (not able to install service pack3 etc) consider buying a real copy of windows.
Thanks and good luck,

The only way to fix is to get a new license key or a new Genuine Windows XP CD.

There is ine caes Microsoft in all it's wisdom did not consider. There are people who bought computers with OEM versions of XP, but did not come with a restore partition and they have lost their recovery disk. In this case their only option is to purchase a new recovery disk from the OEM. Personally I think this is one of thse cases where I can justify using a pirated OS, just to get them up and running and remove personal files etc. before the restore. But MS is far too paranoid and there is no way to verify ownership in this case so technically it is illegal. But ethically, I don't see a problem myself.

This means that you have an invalid or incorrectly entered product key. This will also happen if you use a license number that you find on the Internet.
Contact the place where you purchased the item, or call Microsoft's "Activation Center."
Make sure you have correctly entered your legally acquired key.
This is the contact information for Microsoft's local activation centers. http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/existing-customers/activation-centers.aspx
If you do not have a valid or legally acquired product key, you cannot fix this problem legally.
