Windows 7 suddenly not genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I bought Windows 7 upgrade about 4 months ago and upgraded it from Windows Vista Ultimate.  Today when I turned on my computer I got a message saying that it was no longer genuine and that I had the wrong product key.  I tried re-entering the key to see if maybe I had typed it in wrong but, that would not make any sense since I have been using this computer for approximately 4 months with no problems (my computer is home built).  I have not changed any of the hardware during this time and I have not recently installed any new programs in the past 2 weeks.  I downloaded a program called MGAD (Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool 1.9.0027.0) that was suggested on these forums to check the product key for validity and these were the results:

  • From your MGA report:

    Windows Product ID: 00426-067-0635716-86685

    Unfortunately, the product key used to install your copy of Windows 7 Ultimate is non-genuine.  It is a  MSDN subscription  not-for-resale product key.  Whomever sold you this product key did so illegally.  In order to fix this issue, please visit  Genuine Microsoft Advantage and click on Validate Windows.  When validation fails, click on the prompts to "Get Genuine" to learn how to acquire a WGA Kit.

    For additional information, please review: Blocked Keys  and  Purchasing Genuine Microsoft Software
