    Have an error that reads "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting" "This copy of Windows did not pass genuine Windows validation". We are running XP with service Pk3. It put an icon in the task bar and a banner on the desktop. Is there anything I can do to remove this without formatting? Anything in regedit? Thank you inadvance.
