Remove Windows Xp Genuine Notification

  • Launch Windows Task Manager (Processes) and leave it open.
  • Meanwhile, go to C:\Windows\System32 and find WgaTray.exe
  • Right-click on it and then click to delete WgaTray.exe but leave the deletion confirmation box open.
  • Go back to Windows Task Manager and find Wgatray.exe to end the process.
  • Click “End Process”, and when you are prompted for a confirmation to terminate the process, align the “End Process” confirmation box with the previous “Delete File” confirmation box, or at least have them close together (because you need to do both actions quickly - at most within 2 seconds).
  • Press ‘Yes’ on the Task Manager prompt (to “end the process”) and then quickly press ‘Yes’ on the deletion confirmation (to delete the actual file). You’ll need to repeat this if you miss it.
  • If you think you did this successfully, launch Registry Editor (Start > Run > regedit).
  • Browse to the following location : 
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon \ Notify
  • Delete the folder WgaLogon and all its contents.
  • Reboot Windows XP.
As a precaution, after you have followed the above instructions:
  • Go to Control Panel > Security Center > Automatic Update Settings.
  • Select the third option - “Notify me but don’t automatically download or install them”.
  • Click OK.
  • The next time the “Windows Updates” icon appears in the system tray, click on the icon and it will display a list of available updates (Windows won’t automatically download and install them anymore).
  • If “Windows Genuine Advantage Notification Tool” is there, uncheck it and press enter to download everything else . You can right-click to “hide updates” that you don’t want.
  • Select “Don’t notify me about these updates again”, so that they will be ignored every time updates are downloaded.
  • Just remember, from now on, make sure to check the list of downloads so that you don’t install any new versions of this “tool”.
