    How to disable the "Activate Windows now." message on Windows XP System.

    As soon as I turn on my system that running on Windows XP, I get the notification popup from the taskbar saying that "Activate Windows now.", I will close it for the first time then soon after an hour or earlier I get the same pop up again. Though it is not affecting anything but I don't want it to appear many times, so tell me what should I do inorder to disable it?

    Dear friend,

    It seems that you are using a pirated copy of Windows XP. To turn off the option-- activate Windows now, you should activate the Windows XP with the genuine key. You can also stop this message from appearing by activating Windows XP through illegal cracks such as Windows XP Activation Tools. If youre using a genuine Windows XP then you should contact Microsoft Support Centre to solve your problem.

    Thanks!
