I purchased a genuine copy of Windows 7 about six months ago.I validated it with Microsoft and got the usual updates. Now when I switch on my computer tells me I have an unlawful copy.Any place I can contact?

You could also try Activate by phone
To start the Activate by Phone wizard, click the Start button and type: slui 4 and hit enter. In the Windows that opens, select your location and follow the directions.

Once you call the Activation number, either select the option to talk to a Live Activation Rep or if there is no option, don't enter any into the phone, this should force the phone prompt to transfer you to a Live Rep.

Presumably you've tried running System Restore, as a corrupted entry in the registry may have triggered the problem?
