Remove WGA alerts
 
Remove the non-genuine copy of Windows XP nag screen and You may be a victim of software counterfeiting reminder

You will need to start in safe mode.
use task manager to stop the process wgatray.exe, this will allow us to delete the files giving the nag screens and reminders
*NOTE for some versions of XP (home edition) you will need to stop this process before restarting into safe mode

delete the file wgatray.exe in both of the following directories:
C:\Windows\System32
C:\Windows\System32\dllcache
*This stops the pop-up balloon

Now open regedit:
naviagate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify
and delete the entire folder called WgaLogon
and restart your computer.

You will be prompted to re-install these services which have been deleted, simply write down the services it says are missing, and de-select them from msconfig -> services tab, and they will be gone forever.
If you get the odd pop-up or returning screen you may also disable the System Event Notification under this same menu.
