I Get Genuine Products - Then The Pop Up Appears On Media Player That I Haven't Got A Genuine Windows Tag! RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hi, I really need your help.

    I bought my computer about 18 months ago. Now, everytime I try to download something, like Windows Media Player, a pop-up comes on saying that my computer is not genuine. I always get a key to change this, and then I try to download again. However, the pop-up returns. I thought it was a glitch at first, but I have noticed that it happens all the time. Please give me some advice!
