wgatray.exe slowing system start

My computer got too slow to start, sometimes taking more than 5 minutes to let me work on it...

So i started to try to analyse what is happening, and i noticed that most of the slowdown is caused by the WgaTray.exe process (when i terminate it the systems become fast again)

the problem is that sometimes it doesn't allow me to terminate it, the process simply returns...

so i believe the windows genuine advantage is making my computer to crawl... (a friend told me that it is conflicting with my nvidia drivers, but wasn't sure, so im here)

anyone know how can i make this WgaTray.exe stop slowing my pc? My XP is legit and i prefer not just use the turnarounds of the non legit users that kill windows updates...

please help...

well..... :) one way is to make sure you were or are able to validate the system in question. you didnt mention if any wgatray exe. error messages appeared so im guessing none has. perhaps a trip to microsofts knowledge base would be in order...?or one might try here...http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Uninstallers/RemoveWGA.shtml
