I have a question, My brother in laws computer XP Pro is not a genuine copy of Windows. He bought it that way. It has worked fine up until the other day. You open the browser, AOL or IE6, it may stay up from a few seconds to a minute. Then an error pops up saying that it has to close. Digital Signature. Now, I went to check out his problem and get his documents off computer and it wont let me. errror. Would windows have some sort of time limit that the system will work right. He has had this CPU for about 4 years. Never a problem. I am thinking it may be a virus. He has no anti-virus on it. I am going to try to install Avira and CCleaner.

Thank you for being honest but since it is a bootleg copy of Windows, it is against forum rules to help you with it
All I can suggest is remove the hard drive and slave it to yours to get the information off of it

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.
