store brought copy of win7 now tells me its not genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a store brought copy of win7 ultimate I have been running it for around a year now and just today it tells me its not a genuine copy.

    I dont understand how this is when i brought it it was sealed  and i had to crack the microsoft seal sticker on the pack.

    after spending $200 on this copy it looks like i have to out lay another 260 to get a new product key I dont think so ill just change to a diffrent OS  system.

    not real happy  when i had installed win7 it validated and every thing.

    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
    Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
    To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
