  • Windows Product ID: 00359-232-7134481-86569

    The product ID -232- Indicates a not for resale MSDN account. If you are not the account holder and you purchased this in a retail box, the box and it's contents are counterfeit. Demand an immediate refund from the seller

    For more information see this:


    And this:


    To see how good these counterfeits are becoming, see:


    You will have to purchase a legitimate windows from a legitimate retailer.

  • I bought this PC as a Emachine from Walmart, since then I have upgraded the CPU, GPU, memory and power supply. I have had it re activated after all of my upgrades. All I do now is Windows Updates but still randomly it says im not Genuine. I'm an I.T. guy so I know a thing or two about PC's.. This is MY COPY OF WINDOWS 7 but whats wrong on Microsoft's end?

  • your product key is blocked because you have purchased a counterfeit windows. (it is blocked for abuse, installed on too many computers)

    Microsoft did not produce this windows. It was manufactured by thieves.

    did you look at the links I posted? the video is especially telling.

    For MSDN Keys:-

    MS can only act once a key hits a threshold (and they won't tell an outsider what that threshold is, understandably). They then have to put it through internal systems to ensure that all relevant parties are informed, just in case it's an oversight - then it enters the queue for the next update to the system. I have no idea how often the WAT checking system is updated, but I would suspect that it's no more than weekly because of admin and timing issues. The internal MS processes could therefore take easily a couple of weeks.

    It therefore depends on how close to the end of a vendors sales list you are, and how quickly he's selling them.

    The cannier ones will sell just enough to stay under the threshold for each product (MSDN subs include a huge number of products), until they've maximised the profits, then try and flood the market before disappearing into the sunset, laden with your cash. This could take anything up to a year or more.

    you can report piracy here:

  • I dont understand. I bought this PC from Walmart about 3 years ago. Is it possible someone stole my key thru some kind of software/hack? This was the pre installed Windows 7. Ive never actually seen a real Windows disk after Windows XP.

  • It was not something that stole your key.  The key was bad to start with.  In order to get an MSDN subscription, you need to sign agreements with Microsoft.  Then they allow you access to keys that are to be used ONLY for the purpose for which they were intended.  THOSE keys have been leaked from time to time and exploited.  Any key with the -232- as the second set of digits means it is an MSDN key that was compromised.  When enough of those keys are "activated", Microsoft will ban them from further use.  That might take over a year before a particular one is banned.  But the effect is the same - the counterfeit installation is then flagged as non-genuine.

  • the answer remains the same.

    you have changed the motherboard from what the OEM shipped. an OEM license is not transferable to a new motherboard.

    if you don't have a disk. I suspect you purchased a key from one of the bogus key sellers. it definitely is not the key your computer shipped with.

    the key in your report is from a not for resale MSDN subscription.

    Product keys are never sold separately by Microsoft. If you see a listing on an auction site, online classified ad, or other online page advertising product keys for sale, it’s a good indication that the keys are likely stolen or counterfeit. If you were to purchase and use a stolen or counterfeit product key to activate Windows installed on your PC, the key may not work for activation, may already be in use on another PC, or it might be blocked from use later by Microsoft when the key is reported stolen.

  • So now I'm gonna have to pay $100+ to get windows "again" because of scumbag thieves? If I don't reactivate Windows will I still be able to game, surf the web, etc? I work for YouTube and Machinima.com I HAVE to be able to game/make video's or I cant pay my bills. Hell I'm 31 with 2 kids and a wife, i cant afford to buy Windows to be honest.

  • until you get genuine windows every hour your screen will turn black and you will get a not genuine notice. ( I don't recall if you will lose your work) you will not be able to use any of the free Microsoft programs and Microsoft security essentials will stop working after 30 days.

    last time I looked a full retail edition of home premium was around $200. an OEM license is cheaper however be aware it is tied to the original motherboard it was installed on. make sure you purchase from a well known legitimate retailer.

  • So Microsoft cant just give me a new key or something? I mean, I'll give them 100% access to my PC if it means clearing this mess up! I don't feel I should be held responsible and punished for something that some cock sucking criminal did. I served my country with 10yrs in the U.S. Army, all I want is to use my computer without a hassle but If thats the case "I'm screwed" then i'm gonna go get a Mac or Lynix system, thats just absurd.
