    A little from the post.
    After having read many threads on various forums, I found that everyone is using his own manual method to remove the possibly installed Microsoft WGA notification tool. Some boot into safe mode and create empty 0Kb WgaLogon.dll file, others will use the NTFS permissions to remove the execution flag from the files (WgaLogon.dll and WgaTray.exe), others will try to remove the registry entry loading the DLL, and finally some uses all methods.

    All of these methods may not be convenient for everyone, and are anyway not automated. I have created a small tool removing the WGA notification

    I simply make a restore point before I do any updates, that way I can always go back. And every so often I make a Ghost image of the system drive too.

    Tried it and it removed. Thanks zapjb.

    I also changed the product key to one that works with microsft update so we shouldn't have this problem again.

    What are the odds of this WGA stuff being on my computer?

    I bought my computer in Jan 2006.
    I have a legit copy of Windows XP Home.
    I have not used Windows Update or Automatic Updates ever since I bought my computer.

    I shouldn't have to worry right?
