i dont know if this is an appropriate topic for this forum but anyway..... and im not sure if im allowed to say this here... i was reformating windows the other day and couldn find my windows cd, so i intentionally used pirate windows cd, and it works perfectly. later update drop menu shows up. saying that updates r ready for my comp. Then, i update it and since then all the time i have bin getting victim or forgering notifications, saying that my windows didnt pass genuine validaton. Now, everything works great, but these pop ups from Microsoft just wont stop and i dont know what to do or how to stop them... Pls can someone help me how to stop those notifications from coming all the time?
