    Windows 7 not genuine problem

    It seems like that's an OEM windows copy, it will do that the every time you reinstall the OS. If you have the key, next time you see the "not genuine windows copy" click it and choose to activate by phone, everything else is pretty straight forward as it explains step-by-step. If it doesn't work, then its highly likely that you got a Pirate copy.

    windows not genuine

    download ms tool that will verify if your windows is genuine. perhaps it's not the key but the system itself

    Windows 7 Genuine...

    That's what I was thinking too? If I bought a Win7 and I activate my key how would it become a non-genuine key in a couple months?*Wtf :wtf:

    ...and I thought pirated OS's could receive updates, so how will they get this new update to check if it's genuine*Confused Upgrading from non-genuine windows to genuine windows :confused: I know my copy is legit, but what if for some strange chance MS screwes up and falsely accuses me as non-genuine? I don't know if that's possible or not.
