wga installation screen

Specs: Windows XP Pro, 2 ghz 1GB Ram
Every time I boot my computer I get the windows genuine installation screen. I have not installed it. It just wants me to install it. I have to click cancel everytime. Everything I have read has to do with deleting the .dll in the system32 folder. I do not have those in my folder.
Thanks

CDH

WGA is Microsoft polite way of letting you know you are a victim of counterfeit software. If you believe your copy of Windows is genuine, call Microsoft and explain.

WGA nowadays requires to be installed before any XP Updates can be installed.

While on the Internet, open My Computer, then up in the Menu Bar, click HELP, then click "Is this copy of Windows legal"

NEWS STORY ABOUT MS Tues.7-26-05:
If the program detects a counterfeit copy, it will offer two options:

_Customers who fill out a piracy report, provide proof of purchase and send in the counterfeit CDs will get a free copy of

Windows Home Edition, which retails for $199, or Windows Professional, which sells for $299.

_Those who simply submit a piracy report — giving details of when, where and from whom the operating system was purchased —

and send in the counterfeit copy will get either version of Windows at half price.

The authentication process was optional until Monday. From now on, it will be required for all software updates except
security patches.
