      If you remove it, you can’t get automatic updates anymore. It’s windows genuine advantage(wga). Useless but harmless. Just leave it alone.

      Just now u asked me whether dllcache is a folder or file. Actually it’s the folder.
      Just paste the address onto windows explorer’s bar

      U couldn’t see it just because u didn’t uncheck some options in folder option. (it’s hidden and a part of windows operating system files)

      Kalau tak boleh, tambah maklumat lagi.(I’m Malaysian-Chinese) Then i can see your problem. hehe.

    Is wgatray.exe a legitimate file?
    I have ZoneAlarm which alerted me to “Wgatray.exe” is trying to access the Internet and has previously asked for access. Of course, I searched the web for this and came up with the Windows Genuine Advantage Tool. It seems to be a Microsoft deal but I got conflicting information that it could be a malicious program. I denied it access temporarily until I deemed it okay to run, this is a completely new thing to me. I’ve never seen it before and am not sure if it came from the operating system or windows update, anybody have ideas?

    ( I have various spyware sniffer tools that regularly monitor my computer for any nasty spyware and viruses so I know I have no viruses at the moment or spyware. )

      It does come from Microsoft, it is the Windows Genuine Advantage tool that rats you out if your version of Windows doesn’t still have the price tag attached, and you have to have it running in order to get updates from either Windows Update or Microsoft Update.

      If, however, for any reason your version of Windows is not deemed “legitimate”, you can still get the important updates from Microsoft a different way. You need to use Firefox as your browser (which you should already be doing), and then visit the following website:


      You will need to install a Firefox extension for it to work, but this is safe and easy.

      Updates are a little slower with WindizUpdates, but they are the exact same ones you get from Bill…..but without him going through your wallet to see if you have all your receipts.

      WGA cant be removed and downloading WGA “killers” will only temporary remove the problem. This is very easy, but permanent method that works ( tested on my friend`s computer ).

      1. Create a system restore point before doing any changes : http://www.ecuhq.com/tricks-f6/create-a-system-restore-point-checkpoint-t28.htm

      2. Start / My Computer
      3. Click on C drive / WINDOWS folder / system32 folder ( C:WINDOWSsystem32 )
      4. Locate : WgaTray
      5. Right mouse click on it and select Rename
      6. Type : WgaTray-ecuhq.exe
      7. Click Ok and make sure its renamed
      8. Now locate WgaLogon.dll
      9. Right mouse click on it and select Rename
      10. Type : WgaLogon-ecuhq.dll
      11. Click Ok and make sure its renamed
      12. Close everything
      13. Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to open Task Manager
      14. Go under Processes tab and locate WgaTray.exe
      15. Right mouse click on it and select : End Process
      16. Click Yes
      17. Exit Task Manager
      18. Restart your computer

      Note : ecuhq was just an example. Otherwise it doesnt matter what you add.

      Hope it helped.

      wgatray.exe is a process which belongs to the Microsoft Windows Operating System and provides a notification system for Windows Genuine Advantage product validation software. This program is a non-essential process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems.

      Do a “search”, find out if there is another copy in another file, like Prefetch, and put all of them in the trash (but don’t empty it yet).
      re-start and see what happens.

    How can i FIND wgatray.exe?
    Can anyone tell me where or how can i find/locate the wgatray.exe,please? I know it’s in the C:WINDOWSsystem32 directory but i can’t even find it there. As what most people said,i need to unhide all my hidden and system folders to make it visible. I’ve checked “Show hidden files and folders” and unchecked “Hide extensions for known file types” and “Hide protected OS files” but still,nothing happened..

    Thanks in advance.

    Help! WGAtray.exe slows down my computer!?
    Recently, i bought adobe photoshop from a computer store. its the real deal. but then when i tried to install it, they say i need a sp2 or something and have to update my computer.

    so i clicked on update, and after all is finished, i installed photoshop but the computer still rejected it for some reason stating that i need to have sp2 to run the program.

    I checked the requirements on the adobe site for photoshop and its required to run it.

    then i gave up on installing it and the next day asked for a refund.

    then i went home and started the computer. after pressing my password and enter, there’s a warming about my computer not being genuine. i just click the wait for 5 seconds to continue log on my user. the log on was very slow. and my firefox is always fixed to automatic when log on to user. but this time, the CPU usage was too slow that i have to wait 5 minute until firefox appear. then on the bottom right, there’s the notification that my computer is not genuine.

    please help! my computer is not pirated! i havent done anything illegal.

      Do you have the disk that came with the comp. when you bought it. You may have to do a clean install.
