Win 7 valid

  highside 22:54 11 Dec 2009

Been running my perfectly valid Win 7 for some weeks.
Tonight this strange message appeared printed at the bottom of my screen.

'Windows 7 Build 7600 this copy of windows is not genuine'

Any explanation please, I ran Norton CC etc restarted laptop and the message has gone?

Just to make sure I downloaded an optional update from Windows Update and it dowloaded correctly so validation must have occurred.

CAn happen if your laptop time is incorrect, time may have reset when rebooted.

Thanks for that, something to keep an eye on, dont know why laptop would have lost its time but not quite to worried after hearing what you say.
