    I have a problem that i cannot remove windows 7 genuine.
    It appears in bottom of desktop as:

    Windows 7
    Build 7600
    This copy of Windows is not genuine.

    I try this method but cannot remove:
    First i deleted wtatray and wgalogon from Localdisk/windows/system32

    And then i go to regedit
    and deleted notify folder from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Current Version\winlogon
    Then i reboot my pc.
    But cannot remove it.
    Please provide me best solution.
    I think this is in right place.

    No help with illegal software on this forum. Piracy costs all of us. That's one reason that new OS's and other Microsoft software (Office, etc) costs so much. And so many jobs as well. And there are those who gets ripped off (as it sounds you may have been done so) like I once did. If you have been a victim of pirated software, and can prove that you purchased it, Microsoft will help you. Contact them to see, there is a discount program for those who are counterfeit victims. Running illegal software poses other risks, like spyware being placed on your computer to rip you off even more, and is most likely to cause viruses on your computer as well. And then there's the chance of a fine and/or imprisonment. I don't mean to sound harsh, but I'm telling you like it is. That's exactly why sites like the Pirate Bay are gone now. It's not fair for those of us who honestly pay for our software to keep up the freeloaders. And I'm not afraid to stand up and say so. I just noticed something, your screen name. captainpirate? Does that mean that you advocate piracy? If you don't want to pay your way, then you need to learn an Linux "distro", as they are called. There, you can be given a "genuine" OS for free.

    Since when? It's like the war in Afghan, it just never stops.

    But I agree with everything else. Not that I have never download anything before in my life, but I always buy it if I like it. I kind of like having support for things the legal way.

    True, doing things the legal way, you can get professional support should you need it. That's the best way to go. Too, pirate sites will always be out there, but the risk of using them is not worth it. I read a story somewhere on the net recently that someone was banned for life from one of the gaming sites because of it. And there was the woman who downloaded songs and was caught, too.

    The legalities you can agrue about all day, we can go around in circles arguing about them. Its the the malware side of things you want to look at, at the end of the day you are sharing files from uncertified sources, and these are often infected. The bad guys use P2P filesharing as a major conduit to spread their wares. Polymorphic file infectors such as virut only spread via P2P. I know if that a user comes to me with an infection which has been brought in from P2P/Warez sources then I have absolutly no sympathy for them.

    That is true as well, my stepson did this, downloaded an illegal copy of XP Pro from Pirate Bay, and his PC was infected so badly that Cablevision disconnected his service to keep from infecting any further. And it was an expensive one,too. It was beyond the point of repair. This was in 2003 and he gave $1700 for the PC. He only had it a year, but all he used it for was porn sites and chat rooms, and spread viruses all over the place.

    Backup documents you don't want to lose.
    Pop in Vista DVD.
    Reboot from DVD.
    Use the installer's hard drive partitioning tool to (repartition if needed and) reformat the partition(s).
    Install Vista.

    You don't need a separate "boot disc", the Vista DVD will already have all the files on it that you need.

    You can also download the free boot CD ISO image of Partition Wizard, a free disk partition and management application. It's about a 30MB download.

    I know that it is illegal that some of us use not genuine windows ,but i doesn't agree with you because now there is now way in poor country to buy a software costs the same as the month payment (windows in Egypt costs the same as my salary by the way i am engineer) and no one can afford that and we are porn in world that doesn't knew that there are any operating systems except windows we learn here by practicing we sit on computer and try every thing until we knew how is works so hard for us to afford the price of software were we are searching for the food and money.
