I've had the "WGA Installation" Wizard at startup for several months but have not installed it because i've heard some negative things about it, and at my work, our work computers were getting the same notification, and our computer guy said "DO NOT INSTALL", and told us to just "X" it out.
So i'm wondering what i can do about this annoying WGA Notice that pops upon startup everytime on my computer.
Pros? Cons? Need more info from me?
'02 XP Pro, SP3, on a Dell Desktop.
Please advise if anyone can help me decide.

Hello Cool runnings I can help here as I was having the same problem, I did not install it for many days, then I was told to let it install, so I started to do so, I clicked on it to start then it brought up the read me info and I had to agree or not I clicked I do not agree after reading the info and once I clicked that it closed and the last 2 days there has been no sign of it so hope that fixed it.
good luck with it. :thumbsup:
