The notification messages only appear on computers that have failed the WGA validation process and that are running a copy of Windows XP that is not genuine. If you are running a validated, genuine copy of Windows XP, you will not receive notification messages. The following is the way of bypassing or removing Windows Genuine Advantage Notifications.

1. After Windows downloads KB9050 update, it will start a installation wizard.

2. Click Next to continue.

3. Next to Privacy Statement click on I Do Not Agree radio button, click Next to continue.

4. By declining the WGA license agreement you have terminated the installation and KB9050 update will not be installed on your system.

5. You are done.
