Solutions to Issues Arising While Removing Pirated Windows® 7
What are the different issues that may arise while removing pirated Windows 7?
Windows 7 is the latest and the most powerful Operating System released by Microsoft recently. It can be installed in the system by downloading it from the Microsoft website. Sometimes, the user might unknowingly download a pirated copy of Windows 7 from fake websites. Such versions of files would badly infect the system and hamper its performance. The copy of Windows 7 would not support regular updates and useful features from Microsoft. The pirated copy of Windows 7 would not support genuine applications and driver files efficiently. It would also remind you that you have not yet resolved the 'not genuine' issue and so the computer is no longer eligible to receive security upgrades from Microsoft. It would then prompt you to protect your copy of Windows by installing a genuine OS. The Windows Genuine Advantage helps to attack the illegal piracy of Windows OS and Microsoft Office products. This would produce pop-ups on the login screen and on the desktop describing that this version of Windows 7 is not genuine.
Following are the different issues that might occur due to the installation of pirated Windows 7:
- Windows not genuine error
- Windows tweak
- WGA Remover.rar
Windows not genuine error
A little balloon would pop up on your screen that says you might be a victim of software counterfeiting. Below that, it would say that the copy of Windows that you have is not genuine and would then ask you to click on a balloon to solve the problem. If the users are working on a system that has this running in it, this popping error might make them annoyed.
Sometimes, you would receive black screen errors and notifications in the system. So you should terminate the process from running in your computer and secondly you have to change the name of the files that are running the process. Right click on your 'Task bar', and then click on 'Task manager'; now click the 'Process' tab; look for the process with the name “wgatray.exe”; then right click on it and click 'End process tree'. Then double click on 'My computer', and then go to C drive; double click on 'Windows' folder and then the 'System 32' folder. Locate the file, right click on the file and rename it to whatever you want. Then restart the system.
The notifications causes disturbance to the users and the user would not be able to remove the pirated copy of the Windows. In order to remove the Windows genuine notification, click the 'Installer.bat' to solve the problem. It is effective in the removal of both Office Genuine Advantage Notification and Windows Genuine Advantage Notification.
