Windows Genuine Advantage Notification question

    Often when I boot up and Windows XP Home Ed. opens, I get a popup that
    says the following:


    Windows Genuine Advantage Notification has encountered a problen and
    needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

    Error Signature
    AppName:wgatray AppVer: 1.7.17.0 ModName: licdll.dll
    ModVer: 5.1.2600.2180 Offset: 0005c811

    Fortunately this has only happened at boot up so I have not lost any
    work or data that I was working on.

    Can anyone shed some light on why this is happening, and is there a
    fix?

    Thanks,

    Frank

    Thanks to all responders for their input. I apparently do not have the
    pilot version of Windows Genuine Advantage as described at the
    Microsoft website. I have the release version (1.7.0017.0) and yes I
    did update to WMP 11 and IE 7. Apparently that was a no no!

    Guess I will be living with another Microsoft software annoyance.

    Hello,

    I'm running a XP Prof system with release version 1.7.0018.5, WMP 11
    and IE 7.

    No problems at all.
