Hi johnabraham747,

Unfortunately, discussion of issues involving illegal software violates our site rules. If your copy of Winodws is truly "pirated", I'm afraid we can't help you with "a way around it".

Hello,

Whenever taking over a computer for good, either by purchasing it from someone you don't know, or a relative's old computer, you should format it down, and re-install everything from scratch. You do not know what buggies may remain on the system, and you in good faith probably do not have any need for the data. It is also a great way to collect all of your drivers for hardware at the get go.

Re-building a box is not for the faint of heart, but it is the proper way to take ownership of a computer.
