this keeps comin up everytime i switch my comp on and its preventing me from getting latest downloads and it has only started doing this since i downloaded a movie from limewire which gave me 187 virus's so now my comp is ultra slow at everything,

really frustrating as it was perfect before someone said to go to limewire

i have now deleted that and done the tutorials on here so eveything is up to date except the windows not genuine thing

any help how to get rid of this would be much appreciated

Hello ousy and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

If you have a genuine copy of Windows see this Microsoft site for more information.

Do you know your original product key? And was the product key that was generated by the WGA Diagnostic Tool different? If so you can change the product key back to the original product key using the Windows Product Key Update Tool. To do this, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
