gcol said:The "nagware" that Bob described is installed in a windows update. You can remove the program that checks for a legit version of windows quite easily by following these instructions.
Lauch Windows Task Manager.
End wgatray.exe process in Task Manager.
Restart Windows XP in Safe Mode.
Delete WgaTray.exe from c:\Windows\System32.
Use the search facility and search your pc for "wgatray" and delete anything you find.
Browse to the following location:
Delete the folder ‘WgaLogon’ and all its contents
Reboot Windows XP.
Should be gone now. Remember not to download and install the Windows updates for Windows Genuine Advantage, when it prompts you to do so in the future.[/quote
how do i get into ? Delete WgaTray.exe from c:\Windows\System32.
Shut down the process I mentioned in Windows Task Manager before you restart. When you boot up in safe mode (you know how to do this I take it?), just click "start", "search", select "all files and folders" then type in "wgatray" in the top box, then hit "search". Select all the files it finds and delete them, then delete them from the recycle bin also.BOB.DOLE said:how do i get into ? Delete WgaTray.exe from c:\Windows\System32.
Have you tried restoring the pc to a time before the trouble started?Diyisfun said:GCOL, I have followed your instructions, but rather than delete I have just changed the file names. Whilst the PC on boot up said it may be counterfeit, I dont have the little symbol now.
But I still cant get in to my hotmail account Or log into thisismoney. If I go to another PC I can. Any ideas?
