When you boot your computer, does it want to run a program to see if your copy of Windows XP is legit? Want to get rid of that? Here's what you do:

Go to C:/Windows/System 32. Look for and delete these three files:
KB905474
WgaTray.exe
WgaLogon.dll

Now reboot.

It's a pain Aki...........If you use MSN you have to have windows updates switched on, which means when you try to download MSN exe you go through windows genuine advantage......same if you try getting the newest windows media player....

It's tricky getting a decent copy of windows now that passes WGA...... cry



Thanks to .tUrniP for the sig

I still use the same OS I've been installing for years, along with some newer versions of course. What I have to do is keep up with all the newest "fixes" to keep Microsoft's WGA campaign happy. Of course, none of the fixes last forever. It's a constant battle between MS and those who work so diligently to defeat it! I simply glean from the effort!

The fix I've provided here deletes KB905474 which looks to see if your OS is legit and the warning bubble that replaces your desktop background if you fail the KB905474 test.

The easiest way I have found to test a "fixed" OS is to go Microsoft's site and try to download something useful to you that requires a "Genuine Check." If I can get it, I'm OK. If I can't, it just gives a warning without altering anything on my OS and I know I've got more work to do!
