  • Returned from vacation, started up my computer, and have been notified that my copy of windows 7, which I purchased online from Microsoft and have been running for over a year, is not genuine.  Any ideas?

  • It seems Microsoft is having a problem with their servers. Looks like it involves downloads from the Microsoft store and Digital River.

    Users are reporting this:

    Call: 866-530-6364  (windows 7 Genuine Advantage solution center)


    Explain you're getting the No Longer Genuine message. Rep reported that it seems a lot of keys have been blocked due to them being refunded on MS's side, but not on the user's side. He issued me a new key (he cannot email it or update your account) and I retried the activation and it worked.


    Additional info.

  • I just wanted to update this thread.

    There appears to have been an issue with the Product key Activation/Validation servers that only effected a subset of Digitally Distributed Product keys.

    This issue has been corrected and user that were affected by this should no longer be seeing a Non-Genuine/Key Blocked error.

    If you do still see this error please try the following:

    1) Reboot and then re-try Activating and/or Validating.

    2) If you still see the issue, please contact Microsoft Assisted Support (at one of the below URLs)

    Thank you,

  • I followed the instructions provided by George and called the number.  They directed me to where I could re-enter my product activation key.

    Start -> Right Click on Computer -> Left Click on Properties -> Scroll to the bottom of the window that comes up and Click "Change Product Key". 

    Enter the original product activation key you received (hope you saved it), and it should work.

    ---- One note here - When you enter the key, do not copy and paste it with the dashes.  I did this the first time and it rejected my key.  I had the product key saved in a text file as follows:  XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX  

    I just copied this and pasted it into the text box and it didn't accept it.  I tried again, leaving out the dashes, so the text I copied looked like this: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    and by leaving out the dashes, it was accepted and the error vanished.


    Thanks all for your help.
