I have been using windows 7 ultimate for about 2 years. It validated Ok on installation then. Why am I suddenly getting the message " This copy Windows is not genuine" after installing updates yesterday on booting up??
Can anyone shed some light on this. I am loathed to have to install windows again. MS stinks. Any help appreciated
Certainly did not and this is a site I use regularly. One should not expect security programs are infallible,they have yet to be invented, one should always use a little common sense in these cases.But of course you can just Google activation problems and choose another site. As I said it is a common problem and there is plenty of info out there.:-)
Thanks for your input. I tried what was suggested and it has not worked. Still saying that my copy is not genuine. I shall persist looking for a solution as I belive my copy is genuine even though not bought from MS direct!
Not being able to resolve the issue I have bought a new OS. But I am not allowing update and installation of KB 970133, I believe it is. Just unchecked it w/in a batch of new updates.
I do feel aggrieved as I believe my copy of wins 7 was genuine.
I also had a similar response with my system. Have tried a lot of ways to get the condition back. but it get worse as days pass on. Even my desktop went black and is not showing a single wallpaper. The popup window appears each and every minute. I am just tired up due to that. Then I contacted a computer service center near my city(Toronto). They told that either i should insert a valid product key or should reinstall the OS. I took the second option and turned the windows updates off.
