Windows has just started telling me my copy of windows 7 is not genuine??? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a two year old HP G61 laptop and this morning I have been getting messages telling my copy if not genuine and I may have been a victim of counterfeit software, but it is the same software it came with from new.  I now have a black desktop screen with white writing which says "This copy of windows is not genuine".

    Please help.

  • 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.
      - **in your own thread**, please
    Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
