Windows genuine message?

Hi,

When I open my Laptop Lately there is a message on the screen from Microsoft saying "click here to check if the copy of yr Windows XP is genuine",

After this message compared every time for weeks, I clicked on "yes take the validation process": the result was "my copy is not genuine"

go ahead and purchase a genuine copy at $148 on Microsoft.com

I bought this pc on ebay and paid for it including windows pc and its all legal; this message of purchasing a genuine copy keep comparing on the lower right side of my task bar

how do I get rid of this message wich is oviously a scam?

Can anyone guide me to delete the running program that originates this message?

thank you

    the guy sold you a computer with a pirated OS. Microsoft isn't scamming you.

    Google "remove WGA" there is a program out there on the internet that will remove the program that is causing the warning, but XP will redownload it the next time it's time for updates.

    You have to purchase of copy of Windows, who you bought it from didn't give you a legit copy.
