Upgrade not genuine windows xp to genuine windows 7.

Q: Upgrade not genuine windows xp to genuine windows 7.

Hello,
Im in a trouble, so im hoping that you will help me.
I had a genuine windows 7 for a laptop a while ago, then i sent the laptop to my parents in a different country.
So i bought a new pc, without a operating system, driven by a lack of money i downloaded the old not genuine xp. Along came problems, unknown errors,bugs,etc.
Like for example, now i cannot start safe mode, i cannot make a new partition thru cmd or partition magic cause of somekind of file xmnt.exe is missing.
Sadly, i want to keep my bought games and programs, 'cause my internet is pretty slow, so it will take for ages to redownload/reinstall everything.

The question is: Can i upgrade my not genuine windows xp to windows 7 by buying it and installing like it's a common program keeping all of the programs/games/etc.?

Thank you in advance.

A: Upgrade not genuine windows xp to genuine windows 7.

Sadly if you are looking to regain stability your best bet would be a fresh install of windows 7
Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

as outlined there you can do a fresh install with the upgrade disc, this would result in the loss of your games and programs, though do a straight upgrade from xp to win 7 without cleaning out the garbage is just going to make win 7 run horribly too.

Hi

I have an ASUS notebook (U31F i5 with 4 GB mem) which until recently I used only occasionally. It has Legit Office 2010, but no CD/DVD drive. My desktop hard disk crashed in a big way so I am using the notebook as my main computer.

It has just recently started throwing up messages that my Windows Homw Premium (x64) is not genuine. It is gebuine OEM and activated (back when I got the notebook), and I have not tampered in any way.

I have had a look at some other threads on this forum on this issue, and so have dowloaded and run MGAdiag.exe, but to my inexpert eye, it appears to report everything OK.

I have pasted text in below, and would welcome more expert advice as to whther I have missed something, and if not, what should I do next?

regards

PB

There was a 5 page thread on trying to downgrade from Ultimate to Win 7 Pro but I thought I should start a new thread. I have a thead on a different forum but was hoping someone here might know the answer.

Users computer says Windows is not genuine, was 7 pro, in Sept 2013 we upgraded to Ultimate to use Bitlocker. System bought from Dell, used Anytime Upgrade to Ultimate. I spent ages on phone with Microsoft today, they have completely agreed both copies are valid, and the computer is saying they're not, in error, they will not admit that it's a Windows Update that caused it likely.

They took over remotely, and 30 minutes later gave up, none of the methods worked. She then advised me to BUY a copy of 8.1 and do a clean install. I don't want 8.1, if we have to reinstall I'd rather do Win 7 Pro again(same valid code) and then up to Ultimate again(same valid code), or go to Win 10 when it comes out. Of course you can't upgrade a "non genuine" copy of Windows 7 to win 10, even if it is in fact genuine.

We don't want to have to reinstall. MS also told me I need to downgrade to Win 7 Pro, put in the code, then upgrade to Ultimate. To do that they said I have to do a clean install. I've seen all the links to Windows Downgrader but we aren't exactly thrilled to be advised to use a 3rd party app. I have not tried the registry suggestions yet, I'm not particularly comfortable dealing with the registry. Two questions.

If MS had been willing to just give me a new U... Read more

Hello and thanks in advance to whoever can help me.

A couple of days ago I was downloading some video files and since I wasn't paying attention I clicked an .exe instead of a video file. I know this makes me the idiot, but I have beaten myself up over it for a while and cannot fix this myself so I am now humbly coming forward with my idiocy to get my Toshiba Qosmio back up and health. So here's the deal:

I got the popup that I wasn't running a genuine copy of Windows 7 64 bit Pro (which I am...came from the factory). Tried to resolve it online and the only answer I got was to buy another copy of Windows, which I don't really want to do. Then I tried to run Windows Update and I get random error codes as to why I can't. I tried a system restore and got a message that there is an error on my hard drive, to run chkdsk. Tried that, nothing. Even when Windows rebooted it wouldn't let me. So then I boot towards the safe mode menu and see an option for Windows Repair, choose that and click on system restore. I pick a restore point a week or so ago and try to restore. Negative. Got a message that not only could it not restore but now that restore point was damaged (hooray). Tried rebooting to that screen and all I get is black: pointer works with touch pad but not mouse. Tried booting into safe mode and I couldn't get explorer.exe to run and had no icons. Then rebooted to Last Known Good Configuration which is where I am now.

Hi,

OS: Windows 7 Professional 64bit. Used since Win7 came out with no genuinity issues until now.

A short while after the SP1 update I started getting popups claiming my Windows is not genuine. I know for a fact that my Windows is genuine.

Properties show my Windows is activated. I have activated both online and by phone yet the popup still keeps appearing. The MGA diagnostics show that there is a tampered file and apparently it is causing the validation to flag my system as not genuine:

I have tried to fix this for a while now. The file seems to be associated with MUI packages and Something called Vistalizator.

I have checked the registry and there are no MUI's. US-EN only. I do not have anything called Vistalizator.

I am rather frustrated with googling in microsoft pages as they all lead to the Vistalizator and MUI packs but I don't have them so the fix does not apply.

I was asked to move this to a new post, so I am reposting my original message and then an update:

I am also getting the popup that says Windows is not genuine after an HDD upgrade. It is coming up more and more frequently. I have "successfully" activated it over the phone and over the internet. The registry shows the correct key as being installed, but if I go to Windows system settings, it shows the wrong product ID, no matter how many times I change it. Also, if I go anywhere that you check if Windows is activated, it says that it is activated and genuine, but I still get the popup.

I have a screenshot of the Windows is not genuine message on my screen at the same time as The Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool saying it is genuine. (See attached.)

Update:
Following Slartybart's recommendation, I tried suggestions given in similar posts. I cannot post the errors received when I try activating, because I do not receive errors. It always tells me activation was successful, no matter what activation method I use.

Also, when I click resolve online now, it brings me to an MS page that downloads a validation program, which fails to install, error 0xC8000247. I have tried that several times.

Hi, I upgraded the HD on my HP Elitebook 8540w laptop. WIndows 7 Premium, OEM, from HP, system still under warranty. No problems for a couple weeks after the upgrade, then Windows is suddenly not valid. It is wierd. The System Properties shows Windows is Valid. But Windows Update and Microsoft Security Essentials will not update. The online check at Microsoft fails.

I loaded the Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool to see if you had any other ideas.

I have a MSDNAA account where I downloaded my copy of Windows 7 Pro, so its genuine, but when my computer is idle for sometime, in the lower right corner of the screen, sometimes appears the "not genuine" text with "evaluation copy etc etc". I go to Control Panel - System, then windows activates itself again, turning genuine again. This happened two times, yesterday and today. Is this a bug or what?

My HP Pavilion dv6 laptop suddenly has decided Windows is not Genuine. I put in the number on the bottom of the laptop and it says it is verified and good. But then after a while it goes back to saying it is not Genuine. I am out of the country at the moment, and I need to fix this in the meantime. I do Slui 3 and fix it, because if I try to go online to do this it won't finish it up, it just sits there loading. I haven't had issues with this laptop at all otherwise. Been using it for years. Bought it brand new. I do have virus protection but I am beginning to wonder if this is a virus? Or something like that? You would think that after entering the right number and getting the yes this is valid that it would be fine?

Hello, I am using an Acer Aspire 5738G, which originally came with Windows Vista Home Premium. Later I got the free Windows 7 Home Premium update disc and never encountered any problem.

But since the last 1 month or so, I've been getting this 'Windows not genuine' message on a random basis. Microsoft Security Essentials says that it will disable itself within 30 days if the issue is not resolved. When I click on 'Resolve issue', an IE window is opened and takes me to Microsoft's website. When I do all the steps explained, everything goes back to normal and my Windows is again considered as genuine.

I am a bit worried, although I can always solve the problem, it still irritates me when I see the 'Windows not genuine' message. What could be the cause of the problem and what is the solution?

Thanks in advance.

A friend of mine has a Windows XP Home Edition machine running Service Pack 2. She called me along this afternoon because she has been having problems with the machine for several weeks! Anyway this machine runs Norton Internet Security Center which was up to date as of a few weeks ago, but because of her problem it no longer seems able to complete its update process although she has 322 days left of her subscription. I tried several times but each time the update process terminated after doing some of the downloads. There is also an icon in her system tray area (right hand side) which refers to the non-genuine windows message and tells her to clickon it to resolve the non-genuine Windows problem.

The problem she has is that on boot up she gets a message saying that her version of Windows is not genuine (it is since it was supplied with the machine 4 years ago) and what is more it talks about Windows XP Professional whereas she has Windows XP Home. In addition to these messages which give her the option to resolve the problem now or later, she gets pop-ups at various times saying that her copy of Windows is not genuine, maybe counterfeit etc.

In addition when these problems started to occur she says she was no longer able to connect to the internet (she has a router and broadband) - I noticed that her connection was disabled so I re-enabled this and we can now connect to the Internet.

Hello all, and thank you for the oppurtunity to post.
I got a Pop-up, titled Microsoft Security Essential, which states I am infected by a Trojan. At the same time I was surprised to see a Windows Genuine notification , which stated that because I have made major changes since I first loaded Windows XP Pro, I now have to reactivate windows. Is this for real? The Microsoft notice will not go away no matter what I do, it sits in the middle of the screen and resists all efforts to close.If this is a Virus I am sure I will need Help in removing.

Hi,

I have just upgraded hard drive from an IDE to SATA and cloned the old drive to the new. The system boots OK and I can log in to Windows but I get a message indicating that Windows is not genuine.

I've searched this forum and found a few threads covering this problem but haven't determined the way to resolve this. The threads seem to suggest pasting the output of The Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool to help diagnose the issue so here it is (I removed the Windows Product Key - paranoia!). Doesn't mean much to me so any help appreciated.

Thanks

A:Windows 7 not genuine after hard drive upgrade (IDE to SATA)

Code:
Notification Reason: 0xC004F00F
This error indicates the tolerance for online activation has been exceeded.

You need to perform telephone activation using these steps:

1. Click Start, and in the Search box type : slui.exe 4
2. Press ENTER on your Keyboard
3. Select your Country.
4. Select the Phone Activation option, and hold on for a real person.

FYI : there is no need to remove your product key in the MGADIAG report........its partly hashed which makes it extremely unlikely that anyone could use it for nefarious purposes.

Recently upgraded from Windows 7Home to Pro. After a while I keep getting non genuine error page. MS support initially said it is Genuine and did a remote fix but error still returns. Next time MS support say its a known issue due to Malware that only their subscription service can remove. I have run a Malware check, using MS's own Malware checker and found 1 file called TrojanDropper win32/ Rotbrow.d. This has been removed. Norton have also done a deep clean and found nothing. Running scannow it tells me there are windows files it cannot repair but in the CBS.log there is no "Cannot repair" flagged up. Running MGADiag I get a list of tampered files. I have another machine with the Windows 7 Home on it and I've tried to replace the suspect files to no avail. If anyone can help I'd be obliged.

A:Windows 7 Upgrade Genuine on upgrade but fails later

I may have solved this myself, by reading a lot of posts here folks so that you so much. It's great to have real support out there. I realised I have to go through the procedure of taking ownership of files, granting admin rights and copying stuff in manually. At last it past the MS validation test online for the first time.

I recently downloaded SP1 to my Windows 7 machine and shortly thereafter a message appeared on the lower right hand corner indicating that "Windows 7 Build 7601 This copy of windows is not genuine". I bought this machine used and so I verified the key with Microsoft and it is a genuine OEM key but try as I may there is nowhere to enter a product key. I go to start-computer-right click- and at the bottom under Windows Activation it states Status: Not Available - Product ID: Not Available and NO place to enter a product key. Also all of the DOS commands that I can find on the Net do not seem to work either. When I contact Microsoft support they are no help at all and tell me I need to do a CLEAN install with the disk that came with my machine. The only problem is that no disk came with this machine. I have also been told by "Tech support" since I have an OEM key I just cannot use ANY install win 7 disk. I have a TON of Apps. loaded on this machine and it TICKS me off that I have a VALID OEM key and seemingly no way to enter or fix which I suspect is a Microsoft bug to begin with as they have overshot to prevent piracy. Someone Please help!

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine, but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

I had a non-genuine copy of Ms Office installed on my computer, and have now purchased a genuine copy. Uninstalling the old (non-genuine) copy is impossible because it doesn't have an uninstaller, and it doesn't even show in Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs. So I just installed my genuine copy in a different folder in Program Files, so that the non-genuine copy wouldn't interfere with the newly installed genuine copy.

The problem is that even though I tried opening Ms Word or Excel directly from the newly installed folder and not from the old link to the old version, it still gives me a message (like before) that says "Get Genuine Office - This copy of Office is not genuine".

How do I get rid of the old (non-genuine) Ms Office if I am unable to uninstall it? Please don't tell me to work on the registry - I don't want to touch the registry because I'm not a computer pro, and I won't know what I'm doing. I just want to get rid of the message that says get genuine Office.

I am using Windows XP Home.

A:After HDD Upgrade - "Windows 7 Is not Genuine"

You need to re-activate - Windows thinks that the licensing Store has been tampered with.


Please first try recreating Licensing Store.

Recreate the Licensing Store
Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-Click on Command Prompt and select Run as Administrator - accept the UAC prompt
Run the following commands in the Command Prompt window, using the Enter key at the end of each

net stop sppsvc
(wait until the service has stopped before entering the following lines)

CD %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform
REN tokens.dat tokens.bar
net start sppsvc
slui.exe

After a couple of seconds the Windows Activation dialog will appear.
You may be asked to re-activate and/or re-enter your product key, or Activation may occur automatically.
If you are asked for your Key, use the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case

Reboot and Post back with a new MGADiag report

I have a laptop with Windows 7 Home Basic OEM pre-installed, it was genuine and had COA on the bottom of laptop.
Accidentally, at that time I was 12 years old, so I don't know about 'crack', 'hack', software counterfeit, etc. . Thus, I thought my Windows was 'low', I want to upgraded it to Windows 7 Ultimate version with Windows Anytime Upgrade.

I searched key generator (keygen) on internet, I found it and generated the code (for Windows 7 Ultimate). Then, I pasted the serial number (product key) to Windows Anytime Upgrade. First, it was failed. So I cancelled the upgrade. But, when the laptop's shutdown and I turn it on again, it was upgrading to the Windows 7 Ultimate. How weird!

Now, I know the pirated / not genuine Windows is not safe, against the law, etc.

My question, is, I restored it to the genuine version of my Windows (7 Home Basic OEM) using my product key.
But I downloaded the setup using the Windows 7 Ultimate pirated (using keygen) that I told you...
Is my Windows become 'not genuine'?
After I restored it, It is very good, clean, doesn't contain virus or error, works perfectly. Then I upgraded it to Windows 10 Home.
Is it okay? Or I should buy the DVD to perform clean install so it is 100% clean?

Need your opinion, please...
Thanks

A:Windows 7 Home Premium Build 7601 This copy of windows is not genuine

He needs to change the Product Key to the one on HIS COA sticker on the machine's case.
The Key currently in use is System Builder one, rather than an OEM_COA one - which means that it's probably yours.

You then need to uninstall and reinstall the WAT update -


Close all open windows.
Open an Elevated Command Prompt window, and type the following command

wusa /uninstall /kb:971033

and hit the Enter key
Accept the warnings/confirmations, and wait for it to complete

copy and paste the output (if any) from the command prompt window to a reply here,
Reboot

reinstall the update from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971033
Reboot

run another MGADiag report, and post it.

Hi,

I am a tech idiot and I need help. I appreciate anything anyone can do.

For several months I have been getting messages that our windows may not be genuine. It came installed on our Dell and we bought directly from Dell so I basically ignored it. Recently we got a message that it is not genuine in the bottom right corner of the screen and windows things on the screen started to look clumsy and not run right.

I tried many times to follow the validation processes to fix this but it would never complete. I had my stepson try to fix it and he is a computer pro. He tried remotely and came back saying that the windows version itself was apparently too corrupt and I needed to reinstall it from the original disk - which seems to have got lost in a move. Ugghhh. Oh yeah, several times in my efforts I was told to run chkdsk - did so and it identified different issues, seemed to fix them but made no difference in my ability to fix the validation issue.

So, I bit the bullet and went out to BestBuy and got a Windows 7 Builders Pack. I tried to update windows several times using it - no go. It got to the same point every time and quit. It basically said there was a file that was not correct and install could not be completed. So, I decided to back up and do a full install. Same result. I am at my wit's end. I ran the diagnostic below. Before I try more dramatic moves like hard drive replacement - or new computer, I thought I would give it a last go here.

Any help appreciated.... Read more

A:Windows 7 - Genuine Issues Leading to Unable to Update/Install Windows

So, you`ve reinstalled windows 7, you`ve downloaded the network drivers from dell.com and installed them, and you`ve tried to activate windows with the key on your COA or the key from the system builder pack, and it will not activate ?

And you`re saying you went to BestBuy and they had a Windows 7 builder pack ????????

Amazing How much was that, if you don`t mind me asking ?

If you used that license it should say OEM System Builder, but yours says OEM SLP which means System Locked Pre-Installation. Are you sure you`re trying the right key from BestBuy ?

A:Windows 7 Home Premium Build 7600 This copy of Windows is not Genuine

You've had a Trusted Store Tamper - often the result of malware (or conflicting AV's)

What Anti-Virus programs have ever been installed?

Please download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) from http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/ - UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM PRO' at the end of the installation - and update it, then run a full scan in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.

Delete everything it finds

post back with a new MGADiag report, and we'll see if anything has changed

A sorry story - I went to download a copy of Opera, and must have gone to a non-genuine site because all of a sudden I got a host of pop-ups, inc one telling me about a wonderful "Optimiser" product. Had a go at cleaning the virus and then performed a windows update that had come along.
Next boot i have lost my user profile..

Long story short, I think I have cleaned the virus, fixed the user profile issue, but now am lost in the non-genuine Windows nightmare. Diagnostic report below.

A:Virus, Windows update, user profile and now Genuine Windows problem

If it gives you a access denied message while trying to activate windows; you may very well need to change the permissions for your user name in order for you to have access to it as windows 7 has quirks about having access to certain items even if your user name is a administrator. As for the non genuine windows thing; I strongly advise you in the future to never go to a non genuine site for any free browser. Always type the url directly into the address bar of the browser you use as that way you will encounter less issues. To get rid of the non genuine opera copy. I would download and install revo uninstaller from the link below and that should help to get rid of any registry entries in windows as well as the program folder:

http://www.revouninstaller.com/downl...e-portable.php

download, install, and run the uninstaller from the above link then do a google search for opera browser. Thats your best bet at this point.

My Dell XPS 8700, I bought from Dell has been a pretty good machine. But then I started seeing the modem failing to initialize. It would do this for so long, I'd have to get up an walk away for awhile. Other times only a system restore would fix it, but even that wasn't guaranteed. I noticed when I gave up and finally just want to reboot that it would hang on "Windows is shutting down," but never would. My last resort then is to do a hard shut down. Only problem then is that it would hang on "Please wait while your computer is updating." Only it would never boot back up. If it leave it like this overnight then sometimes I wake up to the desktop but the modem is still not engaged. The modem is a cable modem and it was JUST changed out to a newer one about three weeks ago. But this intermittent problem has been going on for well over a year. Now the most recent development is that the lower right corner of the desktop says that my Windows is not genuine. The ONLY thing that is not OEM from Dell on this computer is my sound card. I installed a Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi on it the day I got the computer.

I run CCleaner both for windows cache and registry cleaner on average once a week, and it is constantly active. I'm on my computer mostly for college but I also play a lot of games on Pogo. I'm not what you would consider a "gamer" utilizing other online platforms.

Since the end of March a window has popped up saying that windows is not genuine. I have had Windows 7 Home Professional x64 since I bought this computer, so it is genuine. I have run Malwarebytes Super Anti Spyware, and I have AVAST. Windows also will not update no matter what I do. System restores will not work either. I have tried to install several Window updates that are supposed to fix these issues but they will not install. The SURT did run and install. When I try with other programs it says error: 800706F7

Hello,
Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7600 This copy of Windows is not genuine

I have a Lenovo desktop that I installed Windows 7 Ultimate on last fall. I obtained my legal copy of Windows 7 from Tiger Direct as a promotion that was giving away copies of Windows 7. I still have the envelope and installation cd, the installation cd looks just like another copy of Windows 7 I got from Microsoft. I have been installing updates since the installation last fall. The message appears in the lower right hand side of my desktop screen.

According to a thread that I read a couple weeks ago, I checked my Updates and found that I have two Windows Updates that do not have Publishers. The updates are kb958488 and update kb 971033.

Any ideas on how I can correct this?
Thanks,
Peter

A:Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7600 This copy of Windows is not genuine

You can call the toll-free number Microsoft provides when activating Windows online fails. You basically talk to a computer for about 4 minutes, but once it's done, your copy of Windows should be re-activated and as such be validated as genuine since you said you got it from Tiger Direct. Hope this helps.

Currently getting the error 0xC004F057 - Windows 7 Build 7601 This copy of Windows is not genuine. A couple of months ago I upgraded to a SSD and cloned the previous HDD using Acronis. I didn't have any activation issues at that time, although I can't remember if I did activate (1st time I have done this). I followed this by upgrading to Windows 10. The upgrade worked but the system was slow so I reverted back to Windows 7. Everything was fine until a couple of days ago. I have since tried typing in the product key from the sticker but it says it is not a valid. The other thing I note is that the sticker is saying I have Windows 7 Home Premium, but the report below is saying I have Windows 7 Professional. Appreciate any guidance to fix. Cheers

Hi all,

Randomly had a not-genuine error pop up on me last night. The copy of windows IS genuine, I purchased this PC directly from DigitalStorm and never had any issues until last night. I'd like to repair any missing/corrupt files if possible.

After searching high and low I've found a few steps to try and diagnose the issue: I've run chkdsk on the OS HD, and then ran SFC SCANNOW from elevated cmd.

I've included the CBS.log and I've also run the diagnostics tool, here are the results (below)

Thank you SO MUCH for any help you can provide!!!

All the best,

Mike

Here's my dilemma: I had a desktop system where I virtually replaced all components except my Intel SSD (I only have Win 7 & "programs" installed on this drive). My old OS was Win 7, 32 bit. Since I got a nice 64 bit motherboard/CPU, I purchased Win 7, 64 bit. When I got my new system started, I had all kinds of problems (so many, I can't remember all the details). When I finally got the 64 bit version of Windows 7 to install, it never did ask me to enter the Product Key!?!? It registered/kept the product key from the 32 bit version! After several weeks of trouble-free operation, I now have the "black desktop" with "Windows 7, Build 7601, This copy of Windows is not genuine." Every-time I restart windows, it want me to enter a new product key and "I know" that I'm entering the correct characters.


The following quoted info seemed like a good place to start so I followed this information:

A:Issue: Windows 7, Build 7601, This copy of Windows is not Genuine

You say that you purchased Windows 7 - where from?
The installed License Type is COA_SLP, which is not available to the general public, and can only be sold pre-installed by a major manufacturer. If you did indeed purchase this retail, then it's a counterfeit.

Does the Product Key in the report agree with the one from your purchase?
If not, use the option to change the product Key to the proper one.

A:How do I activate windows on a Dell laptop which came with pre installed genuine windows 8.

It is possible  you have a pirated copy of Windows. Computers with a factory installed legal copy of Windows do not need to be activated. The activation code for Windows 8 is located in the system BIOS and is read automatically. You can check the code by using one of the utilities that will extract it from the BIOS. If there is a code, contact Microsoft and ask them if the code is valid.

Hi,

I have owned my laptop for 1 and a half years now and all of a sudden I'm getting this error. I brought the laptop in to the shop 2 weeks ago after it started smoking from the power input plug area and it works fine up until today's error.

The scenario was kind of weird. My battery was plugged in and the blue light on the battery was on but my laptop was indicating that it wasn't plugged in. I shut down, and tried the plug again. The battery light lit up on the front of the laptop, so I powered back on. Upon loading up, I get the Windows 7 Build 7601 This copy of Windows is not genuine error. Not sure if these events are related. I updated all my windows updates and restarted. Then I am now getting a prompt for an invalid activation key.

I ran a windows activation validation, and it says "Windows has not yet been activated with a genuine product key. Not to worry, we can help with that"

And then lists a bunch of prices for windows 7...

Laptop:
Asus K53S

I'm not very good with computers. I had a sticker on my laptop that was peeling off so I removed it and apparently my activation key along with it, not realizing I might need it again... I have the box it came in but I don't see an activation key on that.

Help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

A:Windows 7 error: Build 7601, this copy of Windows is not genuine

Computer built 06/2011 with Windows Pro 64 bit. Overheating caused a RAM failure and video card failure. During repairs, upgraded Intel SSD. First, Windows update started failing and just recently, started receiving the "not genuine message". Tried reactivating which was successful. Still getting message.

Thanks for any help.

Hello

So after almost a year with a legit copy from a PC dealer, im now getting this "This computer is not running genuine windows" error pop up a couple times a day.

Im unable to open the validation site in IE even with active script on, and the legitcheck.hta says it's not a valid windows. I have tried the method of cmd.exe with admin rights and it successfully activated the windows product code on my case. Still no change.

slui.exe and slui.exe 4 doesn't open at all for me. Neither does the "Activate Windows" shortcut.

I have multi language installed from dealer if that makes any difference (Norwegian & English)

Im leaning towards it might be either malware or an error with either an AntiVirus or a registry cleaner.

Please help

Mmk, So recently I've been recieving these messages telling me that I may be a victim of piracy and that I did not pass the Windows genuine version test. This meaning that I may have a pirated copy of windows. However I know for a fact this isn't true.

I was just wondering if there might be some settings on, or there might be some trouble shooting I might have to do to get it to work. Basically whatever someone might think is a plausible reason as to why I didnt pass the "Windows Genuine Inspection" test.

Thank you in advance!

HI:

I bought a new Dell desktop with Windows 7 Pro two weeks ago from the big online seller (Fulfilled by). I could not find the COA Key anywhere on or inside the computer or in any of the boxes it came in. There is a color shifting blue Windows Pro label on the computer.

When I activated it, it never asked for the key, but it did say "Activated". On the computer>properties page it says Activated. All updates have installed with no warnings.

From reading some of the posts here, I'm concerned that I might have a counterfeit Windows. Here's the MGAD:

I had to replace the hard drive on the comp I/we fixed for my buddy. He bought it new but doesn't have an XP disk. I loaded a copy of XP Media Center and was going to input the key code from the COA on the side cover of his machine. WELL...the CD I borrowed from a friend was a "9 in 1" and when I loaded Media Center it flew right by the key entry portion of the installation! So I figure I would do the right thing and run updates, this checks Windows Genuine and of course it failed. I expected this. So I downloaded the Key Update Tool_enu.exe and "woe is me" I doesn't support Media Center apparently!!! So now, there are warning boxes saying you may be the victim of counterfit software popping up on start-up and in the task bar there is the Windows Genuine logo. I wanted to do this right and figured I could input his number after the install! Anyone know if there is a way to put in the key code after the fact or a way to get Microsoft to validate this copy?
It's a good thing I don't get tired of learning...cuz there is soooooomuch more to learn and sooooo little time left! I could NEVER learn it all! I started way too late! LOL!

Thanks,
Andy
 

A:Windows Genuine

This is a somewhat sticky thread. As it is clearly obvious that you used an illegal copy of XP in order to install and we can't be of any assistance to criminals, you are nevertheless trying to make it legal. So I'll offer some advice before closing this thread.

Here are some references in how to put in the product key. But the chances are that the version of XP that was on that machine was an OEM version with a product key that was part of a series licensed to the manufacturer. If that is the case, then only versions of XP from that manufacturer will accept the key on the machine. You will need to buy recovery CD's from the machine's maker.

Hello Seven Gurus from around the world! I have another task for you. Whenever I start up my computer, it pops up with this message that says "
this copy of Windows is not genuine" then I click "Ask me later" because my register key doesn't work. Then it turns my screen black at start-up and when it goes out of screensaver. It also has a little message in text at the bottom right that says:

Windows 7
Build 7600
This copy of Windows is not genuine

it's gotten to be really annoying!

Additional Details:
it also pops up every five minutes a small window that warns me about not using genuine windows.

any suggestions?

A:Windows 7 Pro MS indicates Not Genuine

Where did you get Win7?

Did it come preinstalled on your PC as there should be a COA sticker affixed with shows the licensed version and can be used to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If so I'd reinstall the Product Key now at Computer>Properties activation link.

If you bought a retail copy the "OEM" in Product ID means it likely is a pirated bootleg copy. I would ask for my money back, or contact MS Customer Service which has a program to provide a replacement copy for those who cooperate with investigating piracy.

Hi,

I'm getting indications that my Windows 7 Pro x64 software is not genuine. I've contacted Microsoft four times and they have confirmed the license and reactivated my already activated system.

I believe their reactivation efforts caused a corrupted slui.exe file, that was resolved in the below thread.

http://www.sevenforums.com/performan...can-t-fix.html

The corrupted slui.exe issue is resolved, but I still get the indications that my Windows is not Genuine.

My father had a computer built by a friend, and he paid around $4,000 for it. It has Windows XP Professional, which my father believed to be genuine. I did a check on his computer for malware, spyware, adware, to clean up his startup, and to remove useless programs. I found that automatic updates was off for some reason, and he had at least 2 viruses as well as malware. I turned on automatic updates, and now I have found out his windows is NOT genuine.

We plan to deal with his "friend," but for now I was wondering if anyone knew a program that deletes files before windows boots up? This way it won't bug him to death until his friend BUYS him a genuine version.

A:Genuine Windows

Meaning that windows product activation is now popping up each time the computer loads?

If that's your situation, you have my (and our) sympathy, but we cannot help you crack this copy of windows. If you're really seething over this, however, you could get this guy into some serious doo-doo by reporting his piracy.

Okay, so I have this Lenovo laptop that has been with me for just a year. A few months ago, this whole 'not genuine' appeared and I tried solving it with the slmgr -rearm thing. I tried to do it again but this time it told me that I have reached the limit. So of course I tried fixing the registry and changing the value of skip rearm. When I tried it again, it told me that all I need to was restart my computer and I thought it was okay already. Looks like I was wrong. It still says that it's not genuine or something like that. Should I reinstall Windows 7? Or is there another way?

Also, two days ago I found out that my laptop has been slowing down and freezing a lot. I checked the task manager and svchost has been taking up 900k of ram. What the heck?? I tried to stop that process but it says access denied even if I'm the administrator.

A friend of mine bought a second hand lap top.He brought it to me to be checked out,He bought this machine from a computer store repair guy,He paid 170e for this machine,

when I checked it out I noticed that the software was not genuine,he used a loader to activate it.he also installed a old 40g sata hdd,not even 1 g of ram and the cpu was in over drive causing random bsod after the machine had been running more than 30 minutes, I went back to the guy and challenged him over all of the above issues,His answer was what did my friend want for 170e,that it was standard practice to install pirated windows and were would you get genuine windows for this sort of money.I told him it was illegal what he had done ,I want to report this person for what he has done,how do I go about this, I'm sure he has done this on 100s of machines...

A:Windows 7 not genuine..

mircrosoft once had a program where if you report pirates you can get discounted operating system - dont know if they still have that program. What the guy did was illegal and it is not standard practice. The guy should have installed a legal version or left the os off the system. Check the bottom of the laptop and see if it still has the sticker for the original os. If it does, you can install that version legally if the key is still visible on it. If you want to report him, go to the following site.

A:Windows 7 not genuine help

Hi Frales,
I have previously had the same problem. I have had a pirated copy of Windows 7 installed onto my old computer by a tech service. I had to upgrade to genuine (100% Windows 7) and activate a product key. There are 3 ways to see if your copy of windows is not genuine.

1.) At the bottom right of your desktop there sometimes will appear a short paragraph of text displaying:
Windows 7 Build (4 Digit Number)
Windows is not Genuine.

2.) Right click 'My Computer' and click on Properties. Then you will see System Specs and Windows information. At the bottom of the screen if it is not genuine it should say Windows is not activated. If it is, it should say Windows is activated. (Displaying a product key looking something like this 3DE1 - 234S - GGHD - 117J

3.) When you boot up your computer a pop up message says:
You may be a victim of Software Counterfeiting.

Thank you and I hope this reply was helpful to you.
Your man,
James

I have struck a very unexpected problem in attempting to get some help with a different problem. In the process of examining my logs, one of the very helpful experts here has seen something that indicates to him that my OS is pirated. This is a big surprise to me, as I purchased the computer from a very reputable supplier, I have the Windows 7 CD, the COA sticker and all the bits and pieces that come with a new computer. I have been told in a PM that I should post the results of the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool - MGADiag utility, and that this will enable experts to tell if my Windows is genuine or not. The person who sent me the PM said that he was not an expert in this and so could not interpret the results. The results of running this utility are below. I really hope that someone can help me with this.

A:Windows Says It Is Not Genuine When It Is.......

Roy, there is no legitimate validation tool that charges money to repair an error. What tool are you using for this? Whatever you do, do not part with any money.

I'll ask Noel to look into this - he is the validation expert here and you can be confident he'll get to the bottom of it.

Hi,

My Aunt got her PC fixed a while ago and the guy was nice enough to update it to Windows 7 free of charge... which I thought a bit odd at the time. It was fine for ages but its now started coming up with messages saying its a counterfeit copy, and says Build 7601, this is not a genuine copy. We cant get back in hold of him now funnily enough...

So clearly the guy was a rip off, however it does ask for an activation key (which he obviously never gave us), but do any of you guys know a way around this?

I'm fairly ok with computers so you can give me normal instructions to follow if there is a quick download or something.

A:Windows 7 not genuine

Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report - then we can see what the problem is.

Ignore errors produced when clicking on the Copy button - they simply mean that the tool could not create the backup files for some reason. The data is still copied to the clipboard for pasting to your response.

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!

My computer crashed and it went to the shop for repair, came back running windows 7, 32 bit, everything was fine for months. Suddenly now a window pops up saying 'this copy of windows is not genuine'. Have I picked up something or is it not genuine?  It continues to update normally. 
Anyone have any ideas?

A:Genuine windows ?

Who installed Windows 7 on your PC? And from what media?
