WGA is lying to me. RRS feed

  • Question


    I've done major updating on my computer after not having internet for a year. When I restarted my computer the WGA logo appeared on my toolbar saying "You may be a victim of software conterfeiting". I followed protocol and validated my software 3 times (all three times it said it passed and was complete) now and yet that logo is -still- there saying it failed. Um.. wtf? How do I make it go away? It's annoying : /
