Could someone explain how to go about renaming these please?

3. Rename the following files by changing the extension to .old:
• Rename %Windir%\system32\WgaLogon.dll to %Windir%\system32\WgaLogon.old
• Rename %Windir%\system32\WgaTray.exe to %Windir%\system32\WgaTray.old

I assume %Windir% is replaced with C:

Also in 10 which part does the word subkey refer to please?

10. Locate and then right-click the following registry subkeys. Click Delete after you locate each subkey.
• HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\ CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify\WgaLogon
• HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows \CurrentVersion\Uninstall\WgaNotify

Go to Start; Run and type regedit. Click OK.

You are now in the registry and all should be clearer for you.

However, a note of caution - are you happy to edit your registry?

%windir% is C:\windows but you can use those commands exactly as written.

The subkeys are exactly as written, i.e. go to

• HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows \CurrentVersion\Uninstall\WgaNotify

highlight it and press the delete key.

• Rename %Windir%\system32\WgaLogon.dll to %Windir%\system32\WgaLogon.old
• Rename %Windir%\system32\WgaTray.exe to %Windir%\system32\WgaTray.old

How do I rename them and do I do it from the registry or command prompt please?

Easy way is from Search . Make sure "show hidden files and folders is checked and hide protected operating system files is unchecked .both in folder options/view
