Windows Genuine Advantage has been downloaded and make attempts to install on every boot? How do I clear the installation folder

Solution


You can delete installation of WGA by deleting files/folder containing the word in the WGA
  • Clear this folder C:\WINDOWS\system32\KB905474\
  • C:\WINDOWS\Tasks (wga setup)
  • C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download\a49d784415582d2f98c84ceb0a75d898\update
  • C:\WINDOWS\Prefetch\ (WGASETUP.EXE-2490191D.pf)
