Microsoft Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) Validation Tool (KB892130) and WGA Notifications (KB905474) looks to have a new version rolling out. The new WGA version is 1.5.554.0, but currently only small amount of computers are installed and ‘infected’ with v1.5.554.0, as most users are still using WGA v1.5.540.0 or v1.5.708.0 if they try to download from Microsoft Download Center.

If you have genuine Windows Validation Tool and WGA Notifications with version of 1.5.550.0, you can follow these instructions to bypass and disable the genuine Windows validation check and the annoying Non Genuine Windows notification nag screen warning message.

  1. Download cxx0254a (removed due to complaint from Microsoft) (extracted from Windows.Genuine.Advantage.Validation.v1.5.554.0.Cracked-CRD) by Team Crude which contains patch and crack version of LegitCheckControl.dll, WgaLogon.dll and WgaTray.exe.
  2. Extract the zip file downloaded.
  3. Launch Windows Explorer, navigate to \Windows\System32 folder, and delete LegitCheckControl.dll, WgaLogon.dll and WgaTray.exe files. (Note: If you unable to delete the file, restart your PC into Safe Mode, and try again)
  4. Copy the extracted files from the downloaded ZIP to \Windows\System32 folder. If you haven’t delete the three files (LegitCheckControl.dll, WgaLogon.dll and WgaTray.exe), simply replace the existing DLL if can, if can’t follow above step.
  5. If you’re in Safe-Mode, restart your computer now.

Alternatively, download the patched KB905474 Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications (removed due to complaint from Microsoft) setup installer version 1.5.554.0 which automatically install cracked version of LegitCheckControl.dll, WgaLogon.dll and WgaTray.exe. After download the installer, simply execute it. As more latest version of WGA is released, the crack may not be working properly to bypass and disable all WGA check. However, at least the Windows PC will get rid of the notification nag message.
