Ok a week ago I get this error message about getting genuine windows. Now I have a perfectly legal copy of windows and now this error message pops up saying to poop out 150 dollars for genuine software. How can I skip this crap?

As far as I know the Genuine Windows validation is just checking to make sure that the copy is legitimate.

Go to the Microsoft Genuine validation page. Click on Validate Windows and follow the steps. You'll need to use IE to do this, however, as I believe and ActiveX Control will have to be installed.

If it's asking for money I'd be tempted to say it's spyware or something, try the validation first and then if it's still giving you grief about money try a spyware scan.

I think I had that piece of spyware once, had to reformat because no scanner I tried got rid of it, good luck though
