    When downloading updates it finished and said that it failed to install and had to uninstall them.  I restarted compuer and then it says in corner my windows is not a genuine product.   I went online and verified that it was genuine.  It was preloaded on machine thats less that 2 weeks old.  I am now downloading the update again.  What do I do about the validation problem?  I'm not a pro at computers so I hope someone can help me.
