key2_shaghayegh, I've a hunch M$ is generating that message as they're pretty proactively pursuing what they perceive as 'pirates'. Suspect they've implanted a Trojan to have it checked each time you boot.
Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean , other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Superantispyware can do the job and you can get it free @:
among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update prior to running and disable 'restore' (restart after cleaning) so it doesn't get put back. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
Just a guess, but...

You got hit with the nagging messages because you are using a Volume License key (in lieu of a legitimate product key) that has been blocked by M$. There are two ways to get rid of it - your choice:

Choice 1: The expensive way - buy a legitimate copy of Windows XP and perform a Repair Installation using the new CD and Product

Choice 2: Try the free but full of headaches way - try all of the 17 methods given HERE that may or may not disable and remove Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications Nag Screen
