Hello! I don't understand Microsoft logic. To increase security, the company recommends to use limited user account. But this has led to problems with WGA Notifications. The problem arises because the validation tool writes data to data.dat file during validation process. This file located at the following folder: %ALLUSERSPROFILE%/Application Data/Windows Genuine Advantage/Data Limited user account can't access to this file. Therefore WGA incorrectly flagged my WinXP as non genuine. Also WGA Notifications connects to Microsoft servers every time when Windows starts. Of course, I immediately uninstalled this "important security update" from my system for privacy reasons. To me, WGA Notifications is spyware. That is the reason why I use DropMyRights instead of limited user account. For more information about DropMyRights, please, read these articles: DropMyRights Every Windows XP user should drop their rights Windows Users: Drop Your Rights For more information about WGA Notifications, please, read these articles: Genuine Advantage is Microsoft spyware Windows Genuine Advantage is still genuinely bad Get all security patches without WGA nightmares Windows Anti-Counterfeit Tool requires loosening PC security Windows Genuine Advantage falsely accuses millions I strongly suggest to stay away from this "important security update"!
