The previous article on methods to disable the Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) Notifications and crack the WGA Validation Tool has became a bit messy, with lots of the bypass methods no longer works, or too troublesome to hack, and with wealth of information mined in the comments section. This article is the updated version which contains only the popular and easiest working methods on how to crack, disable or remove the WGA Validation Tool and WGA Notifications from your Windows XP machine, and how to bypass genuine Windows validation required when downloading certain software apps such as Windows Defender, DirectX, Internet Explorer 7 and Windows Media Player from Microsoft, and when during to process to install the application.

The simple hack will make your Windows XP always genuine and activated, by simply routing the validation callback to your own PC.

Universal and All-in-One Way to Make Windows Activated (Passed WPA), Disable and Remove WGA Validation Tool (KB892130) and WGA Notifications (KB905474), plus Bypass and Skip Genuine Windows Validation required when Download and Installation of Software for Genuine Licensed Microsoft Customers

Note: This method most likely works on Windows XP SP2 (Service Pack 2) only. If you still haven’t upgrade to SP2, you can download Windows XP Service Pack 2 that no need any validation to download and install via direct download link.

  1. Download the WindowsLicense.rar or wpa_registry.rar (links and downloads removed due to complaint from Microsoft) archive files which contains the same registry’s registration file with .reg extension.
  2. Extract the archive to retrieve the registration file.
  3. Double click on the registry entry file (with .reg extension), and answer Yes when asked whether want to add the information to the registry to hack the registry.
  4. The Windows is fully licensed, legal, genuine and activated. You should be able to pass all validation of Windows Genuine Advantage program required at anywhere, including Windows Update or Microsoft Update, Microsoft Download Center, validate with Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool, validate from Genuine Microsoft Windows online, setup installation of WGA apps and etc. Of course, until the next Microsoft update.

The registration file actually put in the following registry keys and branches to the Windows registry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WPAEvents] "OOBETimer"=hex:ff,d5,71,d6,8b,6a,8d,6f,d5,33,93,fd

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion] "CurrentBuild"="1.511.1 () (Obsolete data - do not use)"

If you can’t download the files above, simply open any text editor, copy and paste the above text (make sure the format is text only and not a rich text, as the quotation marks (which is distorted by WordPress) matter to make the registration file you created yourself works), and the save the file with .reg extension. The double click on the .reg you created to apply the registry trick.

Note: Some users reported that the hack on the registry trick is erased, reverted or reset once reboot or restart your PC. If so, use the patch or crack listed below for your version of WGA.

Make Windows Genuine and Legally Licensed by Changing Windows XP Product Key (CD Key)

A bit tough method, as most likely the Windows XP license key or CD key or volume license key (VLK) that is leaked where you can find on the web is already or will be blocked and blacklisted by Microsoft. However, if you can find a OEM PC preinstalled with genuine Windows or computer that installed with legal and activated copy of Windows, you can retrieve the unique Windows Product Key or CD key from the PC and share to use the product license key on your copy of Windows. Of course, it’s against the TOS (Terms of Service) for Windows OS, and not advisable.

If you still want to try to find a valid VLK or product key serial of Windows, and use and update the valid key to your non genuine and non legal copy of Windows XP, here’s a list of tools and utilities to retrieve or modify and change the Windows XP Product CD Key. Here is the step-by-step guide to change product key to make Windows genuine permanently.

Warning: If you use a invalid or demo CD or Product Key, you may screw up your Windows installation and need to re-validate the Windows.

Patched or Cracked Version of LegitCheckControl.dll, WgaLogon.dll and WgaTray.exe

If the above methods do not work, you can try to use the cracked or patched version of WGA related files in order to trick and hack WGA validation agent to believe that the Windows is genuine.

    To Helios and anyone else trying to apply this fix to Windows 7.

    This patch is for WGA.

    Windows 7 does not have WGA.

    Consequently this fix is NOT for Windows 7.

    I know this might sound controversial, but have you not considered reading the instructions before downloading and installing it on an OS that it is not intended for?

    The Ultimate Windows Genuine Advantage hack:

    All you need to do is prevent XP from calling home. I have done this with a XP install using a Corp Key & installed WMP successfully after hitting VALIDATE button, and even get windows updates with any hitch.


    1. Go to C:WINDOWSsystem32driversetc folder. HOSTS file in Notepad

    3. add

    4. save

    Thats it !!! when windows attempted to call home the requests just gets bounced back to your PC.

    The way it works is any domain listed in the HOSTS file is blocked from connecting. This by the way is how some virus programs prevent you from connecting to the internet by generating a list of sites in the HOSTS file to prevent connection.

    Does this mean it is not advisable to upgrade to SP3 as I'm still under SP2? Also, my Windows version isn't genuine.

    Thanks for the help. :)

  • John

    To what jg says:

    If you are installing an unlicenced version of XP and patching it, then you need the corporate pro version which does not have an activation mechanism in it.

    WMP has a separate check built into it.

    This patch does not address either of those issues, and does not purport to.

  • jg

    I made the registry updates and was able to install/validate Windows Media Player 11. But after a reboot the registry values go back to what they were and the activation popup keeps coming up. So I'm at SP3 with all the latest critical patches, and WMP 11 is working so the only thing left is to get the annoying 30 day to activate popup to disapper. Anyone want to help out with that? Thanks.

  • jg

    I installed and it's not working. It did allow me to get windows updates (so I'm at SP3 plus additional fixes) but it won't let me run Windows Media Player. Plus the 30 day activation icon keeps popping up in the lower right corner? Any idea or help???


  • Eric Buist

    I am trying all sorts of instructions to remove the WGA nagware, with absolutely no luck. I always come to patches to download, and the links are broken. If I google around for patches, I get viruses and trojans. It really seems that this is a no-go. There is no way to get rid of the nag, except throwing away the whole computer and purchasing a machine from Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc. Buying parts and assembling a machine ourselves is not the solution, because it adds up a 200$ cost for a genuine Windows.

    For a variety of reasons, some XP installations have difficulties with the registry fix as described in the actual text. If that is the case, then you need to abandon doing it that way and use the patch method.

    As has been described in various articles on this site, if you want to run a copy of XP, then it really needs to be the pro-corp version as you can run into various issues with other versions.

    I currently have XP Home Edition installed and I do not have a valid product key, my question is, what happens when you "run out" of days to validate Windows?

  • eoin

    I am running XPSP2 and have failed WGA test. Can i still receive automatic updates with WGA failure?

  • freddo

    I have WGA (ver 1.05.0540.0000) running on my XP Pro/SP2 system. Today, 26th May 2008, I ran the registry update method listed on this web site.

    I did not reboot.

    I then went to the Windows update page. After doing "Checking for the latest updates for your computer", the web page said that in order to use Windows Update I must upgrade some Windows components first. There was no option to avoid this. When I said yes, it installed WGA. However the version running was still the same as before (ver 1.05.0540.0000).

    Then the dialog went into "Checking for the latest updates for your computer" once again. I got a screen saying "To get updates, you must first validate your Windows software."

    And then I failed the WGA test with a messag "The product key found on this computer was issued to an organization that is no longer using the key."

    Any ideas on how which approach to use next?

  • Soupstoned

    Regarding: Universal and All-in-One Way to Make Windows Activated …. with the Note: Some users reported that the hack on the registry trick is erased … at the end.

    I find that if Micro$oft reports that my copy is not valid, simply merge the .reg file again and it works – for a while. There is no problem with the .reg file, it just needs to be re-applied occasionally. A lot easier than any of the other approaches!

    thanks v. much for the detailed explanation. I got hold of xp corporate (with a key) however have come across another problem now..

    ..I have xp retail installed which was updated for Feb 2008 (so v. recent) whoever, when i go now to install xp corporate everything is fine till the setup process decides to restart my laptio to continue installation of corporate (As a new installation). Ocne my pc boots and i get to the setup stage of selecting install/repair etc, my laptop completely shuts down! i've tried this several times now, with a different xp corporate as well, in case previous one was corrupt, but without fail my laptop shuts down at some points during the new installation over the retail (expired) xp pro.

    No idea what is going on, i don't think my laptop is overheating as boots fine into win xp. Might this be because my *current* xp pro version is so recent while corporate is not? (its dec 2007 version)

    any suggestions? this is driving me crazy..

  • John

    I think the easiest way to explain it is this.

    XP home and XP Pro retail require validation of the licence key as part of the installation procedure. If you don't have a key then you can only use the OS for the trial period after which you then have to have a key. The wga fix does not address the lack of a valid key for this purpose.

    XP Pro Corporate does not have that validation process. So provided you can get a key that enables you to use it, there is no trial period that expires, but the problem then arises when you try on-line updates where you get caught out with wga. These fixes do address that.

    However…. there is another problem. SP1 and the WU version of SP2 also include licence key checking when they are installed onto an existing system. So you need to install the XP and the service packs whilst avoiding that issue.

    The SP2 for administrators that you get from MS as a stand-alone file does not include the key check (unless they have altered it more recently).

    So you need either (a) a slipstreamed XP corp/SP1 install followed by the SP2 mentioned above, or (b) a slipstreamed SP2 install.

    When you add the fixes found here, some of them install wga, but others do not. For a fix to work, you have to already have wga on the computer.

    You can do that in two ways. Either (a) go to WU first, fail wga and then add the latest fix, or (b) install an earlier fix first like the 1.5.540.0 which does install the wga files, followed by the latest fix.

    Also, some software for MS also includes a separate wga check. This affects things like WMP11 and Defender. It used to affect IE7, but that has now been dropped. There are different ways of dealing with that which are described elsewhere. One way is the registry fix mentioned in these posts. There are also individual fixes for individual pieces of software.

    I hope I have got the above completely correct – but invite anyone to add corrections.

  • Blek


    In case you use sp2 slipstreamed version of the XP corporate edition you only need to patch the latest WGA version. For installation of WM11, ie7 and defender you need also a to patch the registry with "WPA_registry.reg"wich can be found on the internet as WPA_registry.rar or -zip.

    A SP2 compatibel VLK Key can be genereated with program XPkey.exe which is a keygen for several MS products which can also be found on several locations on the intenet of via P2P programs.

  • John

    Lara, if the xp pro that you have installed is a retail version that you do not have a genuine key for, then this page is not the place to seek advice.

    I normally use XP Pro Corporate slipstreamed with SP1 and with an appropriate VLK, followed by the SP full version mentioned on this page. That is then followed by the earlier 1.5.540.0 WGA fix (which also installs the WGA components) followed by the latest WGA fix. If the 1.5.540.0 fix is not available, then a visit to WU and fail the WGA is necessary first before applying the latest fix.

    That then avoids potential key problems associated with installing SP1, or problems with having to validate the installation as the corporate version does not require it.

  • Blek


    Try to find an XP corporate edition on a torrent or P2P network. A Corporate edition does not need activation. In combination with the WGA hack as discussed on this page you will be able to download all updates.

    PS If you hava a corporate edition it is wise to slipstream XPSP2 first before installing. This will make installation easier as you do not have to switch the installation keys before updating to SPXP2.

  • Lara

    John – thanks for the replies.

    I see what you mean re: WGA and validating. my laptop came with (licensed) home edition, but i've formatted since and installed win xp pro (w/out licensed key). I guess what you are saying is the crack works if you haven't gone passed the validation period. can reverting to a previous restore point maybe solve this issue? I was hoping to find a way to crack through this w/out going through the hassle of re-installing over this o/s (over xp pro) with home edition and then using the key i originally had…

  • John

    Lara – I've read your post again, and have probably answered something you didn't ask.

    If you install XP, you must have a licence key of some sorts. You cannot install XP without a key and then expect a wga fix to somehow mitigate the lack of a key when the trial period expires

    If you say what version of xp you are trying to install, and whether or not you have a key, people will be able to advise, but this page might not be the best place to find your answer.

  • John

    Lara – this page is about fixing a working XP installation so that it passes wga and allows the user to download updates etc from the MS site.

    The issue you refer to relates to installing XP in circumstances where you have to activate the product on-line. That is a separate issue to WGA.

  • Lara

    i've just tried the 'easter' edition crack (wga but it doesn't seem to have worked. I'm not sure if this might be because i've already gone passed my 'grace' validation period with win xp? i've restarted and i still get the error msg that windows can't load unless i validate, rendering everything useless :(

    ..All i get is the 'validate' windows pop-up asking me for a valid key

  • John

    Re: wga

    Fixes for this are already circulating the torrents, so it won't be long before something appears here.

  • John

    As from 21st March 2008, there appears to be a new version (1.7.0069.1) of wga validation being rolled out which might explain why some people are having difficulty with the fix, although it still works where I am.

    The file "activate.exe" contains spyware.tool.agent.FC, "enable.updates.exe" contains a Win32 trojan, and "windows.validation.exe" contains win32/Ciador.EAX.

  • John

    I would be inclined not to download files which are mentioned in posts, as there appears to be problems with some of them.

    If you install the latest patch from the articles above, then you will still be prompted to re-install wga by MS. You therefore need to turn off automatic downloads so that you are notified of new updates but you install them yourself. You can then choose not to install any wga programs that are offered.

    As regards the December 2007 version of wga, I believe that just refers to the stand-alone version and not the version offered when you update.

    That registry entry did the trick for me, I believe i'm on wga 1.5.722.

    If it doesn't work after a reboot, well that's not too bad, just run the script when you want to validate something.

    I don't understand. Why are people offering registry edit solutions when we've seen numerous reports above of XP refusing to open after a reboot? Either it works or it doesn't. Why the conflicting reports?

  • Whitebear

    The Registry solution is maybe the most easy way. But unfortunatelly after restart it doesn't work, unless you register it again.

    What to do?

    1) Just download hstart (for hidden running commands etc. in the background) from here:

    2) than copy the above listed registry setting in your notepad and save as (all file types) wga.reg in your C:Windows folder

    3) create a batch file (.bat file from notepad) with following text:

    reg import C:Windowswga.reg

    and save it as updatewga.bat in your windows folder

    4) and finaly make this batch file to run at all startup hiddenly:

    copy following registry settings in a .reg file and run it once so that it will be added to your HKLM Run Registy settings:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


    "WGA"="C:WINDOWShstart.exe /NOWINDOW /WAIT /REALTIME "C:Windowsupdatewga.bat""

    That is all. Now you can reboot your machine as you wish the WGA reg settings will be overwritten all the time so that you have a permanent WGA reg.

  • ancients

    I can't use the universal method. After copying and save as .reg file, when I try to open it, the message "The specific file is not a registry script. You can only import binary registry files from within the registry editor". What's the problem?

    2 – Download and Open "Generate Windows XPVLK Genuine Serial" ( ) from :

    Then select "Windows Xp Pro. VLK" from Product Family section, press "generate"

    to generate a brand new Windows XP VLK serial, note it to somewhere to use on the next step.

    3 – Download and open "Change Your Windows XP Key" ( from :

    Select "Change Windows Key" from the options, then enter the serial you previously noted

    in the previous step.

    4 – Download and open "Windows Genuine Advantage Fix" ( ) from :

    Select "Yes" in the dialog to apply genuine fix, now your windows must be licensed.

    5 – Download and open "Genuine Advantage Checker" ( ) from :

    "Genuine validation status" must be changed from "Blocked VLK" to "Genuine"

    After that you can :

    – download all Windows and Office updates,

    – play all the media with "Windows Media Player 11",

    – Surf the web with "Internet Explorer 7",

    – and much more..

    just enjoy…

    I did it and it worked fine, I validated, but after mandatory reboot to recieve more updates, I recieved error 0x80004005 and cannot log in. I do not have sp2, is this the reason, how do I fix it? sp2 requires validation so how can I? Thanks

  • The easiest way to find a genuine serial for windows is to go to your local library, school or even your workplace and have a look for a little sticker that says something to the effect of "Microsoft Windows XP Professional" then below it should say "Product Key: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx", obviously you have to get the key to the right type of OS you are trying to crack (eg. Home or Pro), then you should have no problem download or installing software and you'll pass WGA checks.

    Guys, how do I use System Restore? Can some1 please tell me!

  • John

    Does the registry hack work with the latest version of wga notifications that is being offered to UK users from the Windows Update centre from 21st February, or is there a new patch on the way for that?

  • ajisa

    hey the guys came out with the new WGA few days back in feb . can anyone guide me to a location to disable that enable updated for win xp. ta

  • sephiroth2m

    Great! Thank you so much

  • Username

    The registry hack works great for me: the Windows XP SP2 is running in Parallels for Mac, on a Core Duo Mac Mini. I have to run the .reg hack every reboot, though.

  • Nico

    WindowsUpdate fails with error 0×80004005 after modifying the registry.

    How can I get it like it was before, without using System Restore?

  • Mal

    Actually, for me the reg method did seem to work fine up to and through the point of actually getting access to the updates, which it seemed to handle alright.

    However, when I was to reboot and re-log in to XP, I got the error code 0×80004005 and I couldn´t get in at all!

    Had to enter fail safe mode and make a system restore to get back in there…

    If you're administrator, check if you have ownership of the hosts file.

  • gurumandir

    Sorry i posted this on wrong thread I am now posting it here again.

    I have tried the permanent method of patching WXP and it worked quite nicely. However, when I tried to use it on another PC wga-fix.exe did not change the host file. I discovered hosts wa s hidden and read only. I manually made it read write and ran host fix it again became read only and hidden and did not change. I tried to change -h -s -r attribute from command line it worked but again I tried to manually edit it with notepad. But when I try to save it gives error and hosts again becomes read only and hidden and creates a backup file. I tried to discover what utilty is protecting it i could not also i am logged in as administrator. There was spyware blaster on the system which I know protects the hosts file but even after removing it it does not help. I also disabled AVG anti-virus and zone alarm but the file still is protected and cannot be changed. How do I remove this protection. I am sure the protection is in the XP itself and not some hidden program do you have an idea how I can unprotect it?

    then reinstall it from the website =D

  • Slarti

    Hosts file method plus changed key to a generic

    VLK liscence still working

  • Slarti

    how did i find out? i removed the files that

    was causing the 80004005 error (those files

    also were locked by the OS so i used copylock2

    to rename qmgr1.dat and qmgr0.dat to *.old.

    After that the error disappeared, i executed

    the liscense.reg again to make sure it is

    used since i had rebooted and then continued

    Windows Update via Internet Explorer 7.0.

    The WGA test failed with invalid product key.

  • Slarti

    yep the liscence is now blacklisted by MS

    suggest : update the liscence.rar to NOT WORKING

  • Slarti

    It seems MS has done something to WGA lately.

    The liscence registry fix seems to be now

    detected by MS. IT renders the error code

    0x80004005 which means that there was a

    problem verifying the liscense.

    Can anyone verify that?

  • Slarti

    First of all im not sure if the universal method

    works on any other version than XP PRO SP2 CORPORATE EDITION

    You may have to re-execute the regfile if you access windows update after a reboot.

    I was denied by WGA today so i went back in

    my browser, reloaded the registry hack and

    continued forward in my browser and i was able

    to access normally again.

    I installed Windows on my Desktop and performed this trick ('windows_licence.rar' one) and worked like a charm.

    I installed Windows on my Laptop with the same CD and CD key, performed the same trick but this time it logs me off saying it wasn't able to validate my version of windows or something like that.

    I realised this only occurs when I run the .reg file. So I was wondering, people want thier .reg files stay forever. I want my .reg file to reset after reboot. Can you tell me how to do that?

    Thank You,

    Cause if the .reg file resets my windows will work.

    I tried the method of adding the registry files and that didn't help at all, in fact I had to do a system restore just to get my computer working properly after it screwed it up.

    What I need isn't so much to be able to download from the microsoft site but to be able to install SP1, which I have downloaded from a tech support forum. During the installation it tells me I don't have a valid product key. I am wondering if all of these crack methods on here also extend to that phase of the windows validation check or just being able to download off of the microsoft site?

    Hello guys,

    I tried everything and still cannot get rid of the pop-up telling about illegal copy of windows:

    Here is the story:

    1. my version of WGA 1.5.554.0

    – I tried the Universal and All-in-One Way descibed above – did not work

    – then I tried to download the cracked WGA for my version (554) and still nothing

    2. Then I updated to 1.5.716.0

    – I tried both ways again (cracked 1.5.716 and those two registry files) and still nothing

    Any idea what I might do wrong?

    Thx for any help.

    It seems that even with the ESI patch for 1.5.716, it works for Windows Update and Microsoft Download Center. However, it still does not work with Windows Media Player 11 and Internet Explorer 7.

  • Jaime Bichara Jr

    I tried the new wga LegitCheckControl.dll 1.5.716.0. It works with downloads but when going to windows update it shows an error:( To install updates from this website, you must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group on your computer. If you use Windows XP, you can see if you are an administrator by going to User Accounts in Control Panel.

    Note: If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might also prevent you using this website. Contact your system administrator for help with updates. )

    This is a new problem. Looks like Microsoft has a new blocker for pirated windows software. Can this be solved. Kindly help. Thanks

    I'm not sure if you can help with this, but I am getting messages telling me that I have to activate my product key within 2 days. When I tried to do this it said that my key was invalid. I tried using the key from our other PC which is about 1-2 months old(bought from Dell), and it says the key is typed incorrectly.

    Any idea what I can do besides buying a new product key?
