  1. My system got a problem
    "you may be a victim of sofware counterfeiting"

    I took help from this video and
    editing the icons as told "renamed them"
    according to the the video -




    after this I restarted and then the "you may be a victim of sofware counterfeiting"
    issue was solved but
    icons took around 6 minutes to display (blank black screen)
    and then I had to give the previous names to the icons , I thought it will solve the problem
    which caused the icons to get delayed to appear

    but system is still taking 6 minutes to display the icons even the icons are now
    surrounded by black colors.
    Now, the "you may be a victim of sofware counterfeiting" is back with a new problem.

    I have Antivirus
    ESEST SMART SECURITY7
    Clean my PC Registry Cleaner
    Malware bytes- anti Malware

    I tried everything but everything is the same.

    Please Help

    Regards
