  • Unfortunately, the installed Windows 7 Ultimate license (Windows Product ID: 00426-068-5554583-86133) is a not-for-resale MSDN Subscription license.  It needs to be replaced with a genuine Windows 7 "Full Version" license which may be purchased from the Microsoft Store.

  • Your Product ID line shows that you are using an MSDN product key.  Unless you are the subscriber who was issued this product key, it is invalid for your use.

    Windows Product ID: 00426-068-5554583-86133

    The 068 is the MSDN indicator.  If you purchased a retail box the entire box and its contents is a counterfeit product.  Many counterfeit copies are being sold on eBay and the Amazon Marketplace as well as various websites around the world.  The product key is not a genuine retail PK.  It is a genuine MSDN product key and so will activate and pass as genuine until it is blocked by Microsoft as an MSDN key in use by a nonsubscriber.  It takes a while for MS to detect and complete processing of abused keys.  The seller plans to be doing something else by then.

    Pursue a refund for an item not as described immediately.  Do not accept a replacement product key from the seller.  It will be from the same source.

    Buy a copy of Windows from a rock solid seller like the Microsoft Store or Amazon Corp (not an affiliate).

    You have to assume the same problem with Office.

  • Hi Carey, Thank you for confirming my worst fears :(. The box it is in says 'Made in USA' on the Certificate of Authenticity and the DVDs look genuine enough, is this an illegal counterfeit?

  • It is a counterfeit manufactured in China.  Look at the YouTube video at the link I posted in my reply.

  • ok thanks. I have contacted the buyer and he will only refund if I send the item back unopened! It is impossible as I had to open it to install windows and register the key inside which is why I am having this problem and don;t know what to do?

    Make a complaint through the purchasing channel you used (probably eBay?) - they should be able to help.

  • ok I have started this. How can I tell if my Office 2010 is genuine, the box says 'Made in USA', the disc has no hologram on the OMG and the CoA looks the same as the counterfeit Windows 7 Disc.

  • Office Genuine Advantage has been retired so there is nothing in the report that says one way or another. 

    But consider:  From the same seller?  Heavily discounted? 

    What do you think the chances are?

  • Hi, I actually bought Office from Amazon (3rd Party Seller), a different seller than the one I bought Windows 7 from. Should I file a claim on Amazon against them?

  • If you are still within the seller's return policy just return it for a refund.  You can't prove it is counterfeit at this point.  Darin Smith may have a means to check the product key, though.  Let's see what he says.
