WGA Notifications, will not activate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm getting a "This Copy of Windows is Not Genuine" message, and a tray icon notification that says "You may be a victim of software counterfiting" message in the corner.  Activation won't work in IE; however, the alternative exe version runs, and I've been able to use it in Firefox to download programs (though obviously windows update won't work).

    Surprisingly enough, Windows Defender installs fine.  I don't know about IE7 - I'm not about to put that on a machine of mine.

    The copy of Windows is legitimate - I bought it locally, I've seen the holograms, the store in question is beyond reproach, and I personally applied the CoA to the machine, and have done dozens of 'em before.   The cd key in windows is correct.

  • It's a system I built from a macbook parts.  I installed the hard drive and RAM in it.  Kept having issues with crashing, freezing, overheating, etc.  It got much better and way more reliable when I put windows on it.

    It got better still when I installed linux on it.  The games I play work better and faster under emulation in Linux than they do under Windows.  Don't ask me why.

  • Sorry about that - I'd had a go at trying to fix it myself; had some fun with "Remove on Reboot" and regedit, and for some reason I didn't it working.  You have my humblest apologies; it seems to work fine now.
