Update validating xp
When a user installs Windows Genuine Advantage, an Internet Explorer add-on is installed labeled "Windows Genuine Advantage".
In early releases the tool could be readily disabled with the IE Add-on Management feature.
Also, there is Windows Genuine Advantage Validation and Windows Genuine Advantage Notification, these are 2 different things.
Validation allows or stops you getting certain update patches and software like Window Media Player or Security Essentials.
Now when you get to the desktop, everything should be back to normal!
Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) is an anti-infringement system created by Microsoft that enforces online validation of the licensing of several recent Microsoft Windows operating systems when accessing several services, such as Windows Update, and downloading Windows components from the Microsoft Download Center.
Although it’s designed as an anti piracy measure, all too often WGA causes problems for legitimate users telling them their copy of Windows XP isn’t legal and they should go and buy a full copy to make their system a “genuine” one.It is accessible by either a stand-alone program, a Netscape-compatible web browser plug-in, or as an Active X control within Internet Explorer, the latter of which is relevant to any attempt to access Microsoft updates via its browser.It includes the following steps: The Active X control is downloaded on the first validation and when a new version is available, but the validation itself can be performed any time the user connects to a Microsoft Website to update.Although Microsoft themselves state WGA Notifications cannot be removed once installed, this is of course, completely untrue.A little tool called Remove WGA enables you to remove Microsoft WGA Notifications which is no bad thing whether your XP install is genuine or not.
