You have installed, maybe inadvertently, an update called WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) which is an anti-piracy system. It detects if you have installed a pirated Windows and notifies you repeatedly. If you think you bought a genuine Windows XP then contact Microsoft.

No assistance would be provided to anyone on BleepingComputer.com related to bypassing, removing or disabling WGA.

Per BC forum rules:

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.
