Windows Genuine Advantage is a software anti-piracy program started by Microsoft in 2005. It enforces the online validation of some of the Microsoft products. It is automatically installed if Windows Automatic Updates are enabled. If goes to the Windows Update site, it will ask you for installing this validation tool before you can select the updates from the Microsoft update website. By accepting to install this validation tool, an ActiveX component in Internet Explorer is installed.
What does it do?

If, for some reason, this tool fails to
validate your Windows, then it’ll always show you a warning that you may be a victim of software counterfeiting and that your Windows is not genuine. It will show up on your logon screen and make you wait for some seconds. And when you logon, it will just site in your status bar and will keep annoying you.

Setelah anda copy dan simpan code diatas, maka jalankan file tersebut dengan cara double click file yang anda buat.
Belum puas dengan langkah-langkah diatas, sebenarnya ada satu langkah lagi agar windows kita 100% asli. Kita dapat menggunakan software keyfinder untuk merubah Windows Key dan Microsoft Windows Genuine Advantage Tool untuk mengecek windows kita asli atau tidak.
Selamat windows anda sekarang menjadi windows asli tapi palsu:D Dengan langkah2 diatas maka anda dapat mendownload IE anda menjadi versi IE 7 dan Media Player upgrade ke versi 11.
Sekian dulu yah, pesan saya gunakan selalu open source jgn biasakan diri anda bergantung sama windows (meskipun saya sendiri masih belum bisa lepas 100%)
