  1. Recently, i've just discovered that my copy of Window XP isn't genuine. Something that i think is a window "pop up" about window genuine validation always appear whenever i start using my PC. I've removed all its file in my system32 folder. The only thing i've to do now is to open the Registry Editor and remove some files there. But i don't know what's the files and its directory. Somebody please help me, thanks.

    If your copy is not genuine there is nothing you can do with it except pay Microsoft for a genuine validation key. If you have a genuine validation key sticker on the system case, it may be that the installation used the wrong sort of windows install CD.

    If it says that your copy is not genuine & you're sure that it is genuine, call up Microsoft to fix things up. If it is not genuine & you were aware of that from the start, then you will not get help here.
