It's popped up on my parents laptop--I remember back in the day I found a site that had me do all this registry editing and file deleting and it worked great.

But now I can't find it and the pop-ups and system tray icon and desktop picture is starting to piss my parents off.


So, is there any way to currently remove the Windows Genuine Validation/Your system may be a victim of counterfeiting bullshit?

We got the system tray icon, slow Windows start up, and on the desktop (which we can't switch) it says You may be a victim of software counterfeiting.


Any help would be appreciated guys <3

Thanks so much.

Love,

Usually just reentering your product key fixes it.

Key cause of this problem is having a non-legit version of windows.
Recommended solution is to enter a valid windows key.
