Windows 7 Build 7601 This copy of windows is not genuine. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought my computer at Best Buy about 18 months ago. It's worked fine except for a few backup problems I encountered and fixed. A few guests used my computer last week, and now all of a sudden I can't use my restore points, I can't install updates, it takes forever to uninstall anything, my disk defragmenter doesn't work along with a whole host of core windows diagnostic tools. And just today, during one particular boot the message appeared in the lower right:  Windows 7 Build 7601 This copy of Windows is not genuine

    Oh, and every time I try to log off, it hangs forever on the "Shutting Down" window. I have to power down to get it to reboot.

    Most of my other software works fine. Please advise.
