A window keeps coming up saying that my copy of windows is not valid. I know mine isn't the real copy, I'm currently using Windows 7 and I just want to remove the windows genuine checker. Last time this happened, it shut down my whole computer and I couldn't start it again.
Any tips of how I can fix this problem?
I've tried using the CMD method and deleting the wgatray.exe and wgalogon.old but it couldn't be located in windows/.../system32
So I don't know what's wrong...
if it's not really necessary to use windows, you can always switch to other free OS.
otherwise, you should buy it.
There is a friend of mine who had the same problem, and I saw how he removed it.

Well you need to be in safe mode, have admin privileges, and make sure the process isn't running. Because it should all be there. It may be a hidden file so when your looking for it you can't find it because it is hidden. Also, if you still can't find it then run a search on whatever drive holding windows is and search for the program. When it finds it you can figure out where it's located easily.
Ehh... sorry menino for getting you into trouble just then.
I just realised I'm not quite sure what is wrong with my laptop. I know after a windows update, whatever it was, found out that i was using a fake version of windows 7. I can only know this by the message at the bottom right hand corner of my screen that says something along the lines of "your version of windows is not genuine". Sometimes a message comes up in a window asking me permission to validate my copy of windows.
I've used a program that tries to remove the wgalogon and wgatray and it can't find it. It even said that wgalogon wasn't active on my system. I've also gone to the actual folder to try find the files. Nothing.... So any clue, guys?
I think more than 10 years after releasing it, Microdoft can afford to give Winows XP licence for very very cheap. Say, around Rs250 ($5).
They don't have to give CDs or DVDs-just the permission to use it as a legal version.
Many people do not buy the original because the cost is wayyy over their budget.
Profits from 11years of sales should be ebough, right ?
