Hello Rogerio...

Be careful, somebody can be using your serial number.
Contact the Microsoft support and explain the problem

R you sure its not referring to the microsoft genuine validation tool update. Try running microsoft updates and see what happens.

microsuck is putting that message on many legit computers.

unrar this with winrar (click free version).

go into safe mode. go to folder option to show file extensions. go to your windows system 32 folder. rename the wgalogon.dll to winlogon.dll.bak.

now copy and paste these files (which are easy made with notepad) in your windows system 32 folder.

reboot back to windows. you can now delete that winlogon.dll.bak file if you want.
