How to Remove Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications (Method 2)

Rename Method

Open a CMD window by clicking on Start -> Run -> type CMD and click OK.

Open a Notepad window (Start -> Run -> type NOTEPAD click OK) and type or copy (select the lines, and then press ctrl-c) the following lines and paste (ctrl-v) into the Notepad window:
* CD %systemroot%\system32
* rename wgatray.exe wgatray.exe.bak
* rename wgalogon.dll wgalogon.dll.bak
* rename LegitCheckControl.dll LegitCheckControl.dll.bak
* taskkill /F /T /IM wgatray.exe
* del wgatray.exe.bak
* del wgalogon.dll.bak
* del LegitCheckControl.dll.bak

Make sure there is a enter character (blank line) after the last line, select the entire Notepad contents (ctrl-a) and copy to the clipboard (ctrl-c)

Paste the clipboard into the CMD Window (right-click paste)

This should kill the wgatray.exe process and delete the files it uses.

gade say: This is another way to kill the windows genuine advantage.
