windows xp problem
hi im new here.
when i updated my laptop windows said it was not genuine. i tried disabling w/ ppls guide but i dont know if it works because when i log in it says something like this "windows activation blah 6 days left verify or not?" then if i press ok or cancel a ding can be heard and it logs in normal yes i used a remover and blocked the things, but the pop-up from the login is still there. it does not say on the desktop that i need to validate and the timer is not there too. i am wondering if the timer still counts or the remover just missed it. i know its just easy to say just buy a new windows xp or vista or something. but my mom doesn't have time for this... so, can you guys help me if i disabled it? or i cant? is the timer still ticking or its jsut a glitch now? i tried searching the files but it doesnt find it, the timer on the login xp where u choose which acct u login only says there.
