Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) Give Wrong Validation to 12.000 Windows Users

In last friday, some users of Microsoft mistaken their copies of Windows XP and Vista as fraudelent by Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA).

During the 20 hours, users who buy Windows and attempt to re-validate their copies of Windows XP or Vista were told that their Windows software could not be validated because it is a victim of fraudelent.

For Windows Vista Users, failing the validation check puts the system in a reduced functionality mode, disabling the Ready Boost cache utility, the Windows Aero interface, and non-critical security procedures in Windows Defender.

The issue of this processing validations began at Friday afternoon at about 3:30 PM Pacific time. And by about 11:15 AM Pacific on Saturday the issue affecting the validation service had been resolved such that validations were again being processed properly.

The Microsoft's data shows that fewer than 12,000 systems were affected worldwide and that many of those have already revalidated and are fixed.

All customers who received this incorrect validation can fix their system. Go to and click the ‘Validate Windows' button in the upper right area of the homepage. After successfully revalidating any affected system should be rebooted to ensure the genuine-only features are restored.

For customers who need additional support Microsoft already offers free support for WGA issues starting with diagnostics and other tools and information. In North America support for WGA issues is available at 1-866-530-6599. Internationally it varies somewhat so to find out more about our support options go to (there's a link to technical support at the bottom of the page).

Windows Firewall - Free Personal Firewall Software From Microsoft

Microsoft regularly releases improvements to Windows to help keep you protected from constantly changing Internet threats. Windows Firewall is one such improvement, first released as part of Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2. If you have Automatic Updates enabled, Windows Firewall is already protecting you.

Windows Firewall by Microsoft protects your personal computer by block communications that might be dangerous software trying to find a way to connect to your computer.

Windows Firewall is smart enough to allow connections from personal computers in your home and to block connections from computers on the Internet. For example, Windows Firewall allow you to sharing any files between two computers in your home, but Windows Firewall will block if any people on the Internet try to connect to your personal computer.

If you have problem connecting to internet you just need re-configure your Windows Firewall setings. But if you’re not having a problem, simply verify that Windows Firewall is enabled on your computer, and then enjoy using Internet and Windows Firewall will protect you.

Windows Firewall just protect you from malicious software and not protect you from viruses or spyware. You must have antivirus and antispyware software installed on your computer if you want virus protection.

The easiest way to know if Windows Firewall is enabled and actively protecting your system is to click Start > Control Panel and then click the Security Center icon. The first item listed in Security Center will be Windows Firewall. As you can see, Security Center reports "Windows Firewall is ON", the default setting.

Windows Firewall performed well throughout the tests, and managed to prevent even the computer's identification information from out.

Don't go looking for exciting interfaces user options, however, as the Windows Firewall is not customisable to any degree. In spite of this it will attempt to look after you and provide a workable measure of protection for those who don't like the setting up and interaction involved in other firewalls, and would otherwise be going unprotected. However, this is a risky strategy and we'd thoroughly recommend installing one of the more sophisticated firewalls instead.

Add a Windows Firewall exception

Sometimes Windows Firewall might block a program that you use from connecting to the Internet. If you are experiencing a problem with a program that can’t connect to the Internet, but you are still able to browse the Web (demonstrating that it’s not a general problem with your Internet connection), you can add a Windows Firewall exception for the program that’s having problems. This will allow you to use that program without Windows Firewall blocking it.

Click Start. Click All Programs and find the program that you want to add an exception for. Then right-click the program and click Properties.

On Shortcut tab in the Properties dialog box, right-click the Target box, and then click Copy. This copies the program’s location to your clipboard.

3. Click Cancel to close the Properties dialog box.

4. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

5. From the Control Panel, click Security Center.

6. From the Security Center, click Windows Firewall.

7. On the Exceptions tab, click Add Program.

8. In the Add a Program dialog box, click Browse.

9. In the Browse dialog box, right-click the File name box, and then click Paste.

10. Click Open.

11. Click OK.

12. Windows Firewall adds an exception for your program. Click OK again.

Now, Windows Firewall will allow your program to communicate with other computers on the Internet.

Windows Defender for Windows Vista - Antispyware Software from Microsoft

The definition of spyware in is any software that covertly gathers user information through the user's Internet connection without user knowledge, usually for advertising purposes.

Spyware applications are typically bundled as a hidden component of freeware or shareware programs that can be downloaded from the Internet. Once installed, the spyware monitors user activity on the Internet and transmits that information in the background to someone else. Spyware can also gather information about e-mail addresses and even passwords and credit card numbers. Also called adware.

Why Spyware is Dangerous ?

Spyware is more dangerous than you think. Spyware is not a random action like virus. Spyware is a targeted attack directed to specific people to get a very specific information like personal profile that includes account access information or bank or credit card account.

Today, spyware is the fastest growing threats on internet. National Cyber Security Alliance reports that over 80% of computers are infected with spyware according, it is estimated that spyware infections will soon surpass computer viruses.

The FTC reports that combination of Internet fraud and identity theft cost consumers $437 million in 2003. A recent Gartner report noted that theft from personal bank accounts was the fastest-growing type of financial fraud. Spyware attacks are blamed for much of the increase where thieves have stolen account numbers and passwords to get into accounts online or through telephone banking services. Meridian Research estimates the financial sector will lose $8 billion by 2006!

How to Know if Your Computer is Infected With Spyware

Spyware maybe on your computer even if you don't see any indications. To get protect your private privacy, we recommend that you install and run Windows Defender from Microsoft. You might have some form of spyware on your computer if:
  1. You notice a new links, toolbars, or favorites that you did not intentionally add to your web browser.
  2. Your home page, mouse pointer, or search program changes unexpectedly.
  3. You type the address for a specific website (for example, a search engine), but you are taken to a different website without notice.
  4. You see pop-up ads, even if you're not on the Internet.
  5. Your computer suddenly starts running more slowly that it usually does.

How to Prevent Your Computer From Spyware

It's very important to install and run antispyware software on your computer. After that, you must get the latest update of your Operating System, and off course the latest update of your antispyware software thay you have been installed on your computer.

If you are using Windows Vista as your operating system you can use Windows Defender as your private antispyware software. You can access Windows Defender from the Security section of the Windows Control Panel so you don't need to install this software because Windows Defender is included in Windows Vista. But If you are Windows XP SP2 user, you must download Windows Defender for no charge.

What is Windows Defender

Windows Defender is a free software from Microsoft that will helps you protect your computer from popups, slow performance, and spyware.

Windows Defender now available for Internet Explorer 7 to help you make conscious choices about software installed on your PC by providing always on protection that monitors key system locations, watching for changes that signal the presence of spyware.

Windows Defender protects and will removes spyware as well as provides control over modifications to software installed on the system.

Windows Defender provides you a real time monitoring functionality, which means it will always run and keep you protected while you’re using your Windows Vista system. The Windows Vista version of Windows Defender features an updated scanning engine, simplified alerting functionality, multiple-language support, and other enhancements.

Windows Defender provides top-notch spyware detection and removal, and it is connected to an online service that will keep it updated and on top of the latest threat trends. Because malware constantly evolves, so does Windows Defender and its support team.

How to Update Your Windows Defender

Because spyware is continually being developed, Windows Defender automatically makes sure it has the latest definitions before a scheduled scan, so you are better protected from new threats. Definition updates are created by Microsoft analysts with help from an active network of Windows Defender customers who submit spyware reports. These reports help keep Microsoft—and you—ahead of new and emerging threats posed by spyware.

Windows Defender works with your Windows Update settings to automatically install the latest definitions. If you don't want updates to be installed automatically, you can choose instead to be notified when updates apply to your computer, so you can download and install them yourself, or you can set Windows to automatically download updates, and then notify you so you can install them yourself.

  1. Open Windows Update by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Update.
  2. In the left pane, click Change settings.
  3. Click the automatic updating option that you want.
  4. To get important and recommended updates for your computer, under Recommended updates, select the Include recommended updates when downloading, installing, or notifying me about updates check box.
  5. Click OK. Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Windows Vista Specific Functionality

Windows Defender in Windows Vista automatically blocks all startup items that require administrator privileges to run (this is considered a bad behaviour for a startup item). There is no known easy way to automatically unblock these items, the only suggestion given is to "contact the software vendor for an updated version" which is Vista compatible (does not require administrator privileges to run). This automatic blocking is related to the UAC (User Account Control) functionality in Windows Vista, and requires the user to manually run each of these startup items each time they log in. If there is no updated version of the startup item, the only currently known way to circumvent this behavior is to disable UAC altogether (since this is also a UAC related functionality, disabling Windows Defender while not disabling UAC will not solve the issue)

Windows Defender uses three ways to protect your computer form spyware and other potentially unwanted software:

Real time protection
At a real time, Windows Defender will alerts you when spyware attempts to install or run itself your computer. It also give you alerts when a programs run to change important Windows settings on your computer.

Get SpyNet community
If you use Windows Defender, you will be able to see how other people respond to the software that has not yet been classified for risks. This is called The online Microsoft SpyNet community. you will know what software is allowed by other people on Community so you can choose whether to allow it on your computer. In turn, if you participate, your choices are added to the community ratings to help other people choose what to do.

Scanning options
You can use Windows Defender to scan for spyware that might be installed on your computer. You can schedule it and get report on regular basis.. Off course it can automatically remove any malicious software that is detected during a scan.

System Requirements To Use Windows Defender

About Windows Defender

Windows Defender is based on GIANT AntiSpyware, which was originally developed by GIANT Company Software, Inc. The company's acquisition was announced by Microsoft on December 16, 2004.

While the original GIANT AntiSpyware supported older versions of Windows, support for the Windows 9x line of operating systems was dropped. However, Sunbelt Software, which was originally GIANT's partner, sells a product based on the same technology called Counterspy which still has support for older Microsoft operating systems.

At the 2005 RSA Security conference, Chief Software Architect and co-founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates, announced that Windows Defender (which was actually known as Microsoft AntiSpyware prior to November 4, 2005) will be made available free of charge to all validly licensed Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003 users to help secure Windows users world-wide against the increasing threat of malware. Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system has Defender included as an integrated part of the operating system, and is enabled by default.

Windows Defender not only features scanning of the system similar to other free products on the market, but also includes a number of Real-Time Security Agents that monitor several common areas of Windows for changes which may be caused by spyware. It also includes the ability to easily remove ActiveX applications that are installed. Also integrated is support for Microsoft's SpyNet network that allows users to report to Microsoft what they consider to be spyware, and what applications and device drivers they allow to be installed on their system.

About Idle Time Software

Idle Time Software was founded in 2004 by Cathy Davies, an internationally exhibited artist specializing in information technology and multimedia installations.

She was experimenting with the idea of screensavers as an unexplored, cinematic medium, "and I thought they could be a lot more interesting than some fish moving around. They are a little movie that plays again and again when your workstation isn't working for you - why not put something really thoughtful, even personal there? After all, your computer toils all day for you, why not let it dream once in a while?" For her first release, Holding Pattern 1.0, Davies wanted to work with a subject matter that was cinematic and beautiful, "but also common and meaningful to many people." She landed on the idea of a commercial airplane flight and HP 1.0 was a runway success, outgrowing servers with over 350,000 downloads and prompting the formation of Idle Time Software.

Davies is working with photographers to develop several new cinematic screensavers including the forthcoming Cubicle Flood, in which a standard office setting slowly fills to the ceiling with water over an eight hour period of time. Cubicle Flood and all future releases will be available in free as well as premium versions.
