This Copy of Windows is not genuine. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought a PC last year, with Windows 7.

    Today I started getting this message in the bottom right of the monitor.

    It doesn't seem to do anything, but it's an irritant.

    Windows 7

    Build 7601

    This copy of windows is not genuine

     

    I am using a genuine copy of windows. It was included when I bought the PC (new) from Harvey Normans.

    Can you please advice how I get rid of this message, bearing in mind that I'm not overly computer literate. I can follow instructions, but quite often it's without understanding what I'm doing.

    (I am in Australia.)

  • Don't worry about this. I found that reactivating windows resolved the issue.

    Please post an MGADiag report anyhow – it will confirm whether your problem really is solved
