Windows Genuine Advantage issues
Hello again sevenforums.
I'm having some issues with my partners laptop. Her ex-boyfriend upgraded her laptop with an illegal copy of Windows 7, not sure what version.
Now I was unaware of this and updated her system with Windows update, and now I get the WGA notifications after I login and the blank desktop with WGA tray notification bubbles.
My issue is that I cannot undo what has been done to this system and would like to remove WGA from the system.
But first, a few things you need to know.
1. I do not have the original disk to restore her system to Vista, like she had before.
2. We do not have the Internet at our house at this time either.
What I am asking is this. Is it possible to remove WGA from her system completely manually via deleting singular files/folders from the C:/ drive or registry?
I've looked over a few tutorials pertaining to this and they all explain about finding wgalogon.dll from the system32 folder, which I cannot find there, even with hidden folders visible. Nor can I find the wgatray.exe from startup via msconfig.exe.
It would be nice to be able to resolve this, but If you have a strict policy against tech support for illegal copies of Windows products then I completely understand, but I would like a response in any case.

If you can please post a screenshot of your system disk management it may be possible to recover to factory condition if the original manufacturer's partition is still present.
this will at least get you back to a legal state and is the only solution we can offer other than purchasing a legitimate copy of Windows 7
