This is not the original content of this post because I have deleted it for more than a month. The reason is out of fear that I’ll get sued for it. But now I am reconstructing a new post about removing the Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) Notifications tool. Why? Because I found out that M$ itself is releasing a removal tool for it.
Here is another less complicated one. Just download the program and run it to your ‘infected’ computer.
This next site also will help you remove the darn application. According to wikipedia’s external links section it is another legal way to remove WGA. This site is great because there are pictures to guide you along the way.
I highly suggest that people convert to Linux or MAC instead, because Microsoft seems to be getting worse for each Windows version they come up with. I mean this WGA annoyance also affects even those with a legal copy. That is really frustrating. You pay hundreds of dollars only to be told that they at M$ have accidentally determined it was illegal and thus you have to pay again for a new copy. They only got worst with Vista already. Just look at the release date that seems to stretch up to eternity not to mention the expensive hardware requirements. Shift now before it is too late.
