    When I turned on my computer today a box popped up from Microsoft stating that I might be running a pirated copy of Windows XP. when I clicked on the box it downloaded the file legitcheck,hta file, I opened it and it said that had no valid signature and the publisher was unknown.

    I am afraid to run the file after it stated that the publisher was unknown.

    Does anyone know what this is about? My Copy of XP is legit and registered.

    Sounds like some malware.

    I would run antivirus scans and antimalware scans.

    Try running them in safe mode if possible.

    Nope, that's completely legitimate. Let it do its thing.
