  • Hello amecer,

      I can see two options:

    1) Return the PC to the person you bought it from

    2) Purchase a Genuine copy of Windows, from a trusted retailer or etailer, to use on the computer.

    You may also submit a Piracy Report against the seller at http://www.microsoft.com/piracy/

    Thank you,
