WIndows 7 temporarily reported as not genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, yesterday I switched on my laptop and to my horror as it booted, I got a message telling me that my Windows 7 is a fake.

    Then the message disappeared and it booted normally.

    I have restarted a few times since then, and not seen the message since.

    This is a genuine version of Windows 7, purchased from PCWorld and I installed it at the beginning of this year onto a new hard-drive. I also added RAM. I have had no trouble with it, and it is certainly not pirated.

    It is Win7 home premium, 64bit, on an HP G50 laptop with AMD Athlon X2 and 4gb RAM


    So this is a glitch, but what kind of glitch and could it recurr?


    I ran the WGA diagnostic and here are the results:

    Not knowing what caused this is worrying. Could it happen again? Could it black out my desktop and start throwing annoying messages about not using a fake copy? I have got a system restore disk, so could restore if I have to, but I'd like to know what causes this and how best to avoid a repeat.

    Words of one syllable possibly advisable, please.

  • It looks fine now, I don't see anything wrong with the report. If it should happen again run another diagnostic right away, before rebooting or anything and post it.


    Download and run MGAdiag and paste the results in your thread go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012

  • OK thanks.

    I've done the validate bit as Carey has suggested.


    no nasty messages or anything like that.

    Fingers crossed.
