Windows 7 no longer genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • My system has been running this installation of windows 7 64-bit for a few years. Just got a pop-up 15 minutes ago telling me that it is no longer genuine and I must activate today. I have not made any hardware changes to the system since Christmas where i swapped out my dvd writer for a bluray writer. I cannot even remember how long ago i bought this copy now, however i do know that the copy running on my laptop and my other pc were bought from the same company. I went to the site directed from the activate window and it eventually just tells me i have to cough up for a new copy of software i already paid for.

    I've run mgadiag and here is the report:

  • Windows Product ID: 00359-232-6425443-86806

    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.

     however i do know that the copy running on my laptop and my other pc were bought from the same company. 

    likely that copy is bad also. post a diagnostic from that machine please for analysis

  • Bummer. Wish it hadn't taken this long for it to suddenly shoot me in the foot.

    Laptop has an xxxxx-232-xxx etc product ID. The other PC is xxxxx-113-xxx etc ID. I think i was wrong on that key, IIRC it was an OEM license bought from OCUK with a disc whereas the others were bought from another company as licenses only about 3 years ago. My brother also had a key from them and had some sort of trouble, only to find that the company have gone bust. (or something similar, no surprises as to why now) Sadly it was my dad who bought the keys for us and he can't remember the name of the company. (I'll see if my brother knows)

    So i'm guessing my only option now is to cough up £80 for another license :(

  • you could file a counterfeit report. there is a possibility of getting a complimentary copy.

  • I've got my dad on the case and it seems the company was called winkey 247 or something similar. I've already paid up for a copy for my main pc as i use it all the time. My laptop can wait, although it's not registering as non genuine presently, although I'm sure it'll pop up and surprise me at some point.
