Preferred Solution: this copy of windows is not genuine

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: this copy of windows is not genuine

i got it fixed -
after doing everything i could find in related threads... ran "slui.exe 4" and re-entered the key... still said invalid code and clicked on validate online... after waiting about 3-5 min. clicked the refresh icon in firefox and in about 30 sec came up:
Welcome to Windows!

Because Windows installed on your PC is genuine, enjoy the security, reliability and protection it provides.

the mesage in the lower right corner of the desktop "this copy of windows is not genuine" disappeared... checked the system page in control panel and it has the genuine microsoft icon in the lower right...
good luck

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.

I got a notice after booting up my windows 7 ultimate today that it is not a legit copy.
It is a retail copy and has been running fine for a few years.
Nothing has been installed in the past few days and the only major thing I've done lately is to
remove a bunch of restore points to clear up a ton of space on my computer.
I'm at a loss at this point.
I've tried entering the product key, but it doesn't activate it.
 
any ideas??

So i tried using my hard drive from one computer on a different computer and it didn't start. So i put the hard drive back into my main computer and when i logged in my desktop was black and said "Windows 7 Build 7601 This copy of Windows is not genuine" at the bottom right. I didn't buy windows for this computer because the hard drive is from a past windows computer (I believe). I keep getting a pop-up window that says"You may be a victim of software counterfeiting". Please help.

Hi, You have to contact Microsoft to work this out. The legal document says, you CAN'T use one license for more than one computer. In your case, you are using license from ONE computer to OTHER computer. Regards.

Lol, I used the exact same disc to install W7 Pro X64 on another PC this morning and I got a "THIS COPY OF WINDOWS IS NOT GENUINE", you must activate today and my desktop background turned black!

One my 1st PC using the exact same disc, I never got that message....the only difference during the installation was maybe I didn't enter keys (went downstairs) and I disabled the UAC right after installation...could this be the cause?

Anyway I entered the keys, went online to activate and all is fine now.....I just thought a clean instillation would give you 30 days before activation

It usually does unless you modify the any BIOS/hardware settings (drivers) or timezone/time settings after installation, You also probably left the "Auto Activate after first use" option selected on the setup screen and since it attempted activating on its first use and then failed it probably caused the "Activate Now" messages, You could always use the rearm command and get another 30days trial period

FYI: It doesn't matter what installation media you use, your DVD had absolutely nothing todo with it skipping the trial period

Whilst away last week my son unbeknown to me decided I needed windows 10. I am as my user name says I am useless and only use my laptop for email shopping and bbc iplayer. All seemed ok the first time I turned it on but after traveling I was tired and forgot to turn it off, (I think)
Next morning I tuned it on and on the screen came the Microsoft logo, Then the option to accept or decline window 10. I declined and it said it would try and restore windows 7. But , there's a message every time I turn it on to say its not a genuine copy. Now I am using as normal every thing is the same my passwords are still stored and my favs are still there. What to do? I still have the discs but I have no idea what to do and I do not want to use the use of my laptop. If I was to change to windows 10 would it be the better option.

I've had this computer, since probably March of this year. I had it custom built for me. I have had no trouble with it, nor have I had any reason to believe that anything was wrong with it. However, this morning when I started up the computer, it did not boot as it should. Instead a screen appeared reading that "this copy of Windows 7 is not genuine", and I believed it asked if you wanted to make it genuine. I clicked yes and it booted up. I think someone in my household mentioned something about this one time before (about this computer) but I cannot be certain, since I was not here when it happened.

I would like to know if I should be worried at all about this. Does Windows 7 have random times when it verifies its copy? I hope that this DxDiag is the correct information that you need. Maybe you could assist me. Thank you in advanced.

A:This Copy of Windows 7 is not Genuine?

RELEVANCY SCORE 60

Hello, I just recently noticed I have a problem I got this message "this copy of windows is not genuine" It is genuine though it came with the e-machine when I bought it and has never given me this message before.

I just recently installed linux mint 13 mate. and so I deleted other partitions containing ubuntu. I ran into a little difficulty because apparently the MBR in windows did not exist or windows could not access it. I did not know what to do about that so I decided to install mint and have it boot up my pc and it worked from there I was able to open windows from the dual boot menu. Somewhere in this process I tried to repair windows hoping it would fix the MBR with my repair disks but it would not work it said not enough disk space to back up all my files so it stopped working.

Otherwise I thought everything was ok Linux mint booted up ran fine. And windows opened fine and ran fine. Until I saw this message that windows is not genuine.. Is there a way I can verify the numbers? by inputing them somewhere in the pc software? The pc has the OS validation numbers on the back. As the software came pre-installed.

I tried to validate windows on the web but it only tried to make be buy a new windows program.

I really don't want to go through the whole re-install thing I actually have the pc working fine except for this message..

Thanks for any attempts to help.

A:My copy of Windows 7 may not be genuine

Simple answer, it may not be genuine.

A while back MS started sending updates to detect Windows that were not properly activated. It could, also, just be a glitch.

Where did you get your copy?

Vista has been installed for a while, now it is suddenly saying it is not a genuine copy (was happy the six months or so I had it). Now it is suddenly saying it's not genuine and I have to reinstall, I have internet access over a phone line but since I have a mobile I don't pay for a landline on top of that.

Is it normal for people to have to pay extra on top of the originally buying price to reactivate a Vista or is there some way to reactivate without having to pay more money for something already paid for?

A:This copy of Windows is not genuine

This message is to remind people to activate their copy of Windows. You can get more information by visiting: http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/.

If you have already purchased your copy, then you have no worries. You?ll simply need to verify a few things.

I've always downloaded the "Windows Update" that pops up on the task bar, and it suspects that I'm using a non-genuine copy of windows. Can this be because I share the same copy of Windows with a couple other different people?

Anyhow, my main point is, how do I uninstall those updates that I've installed so this "you may be a victim of a counterfeit copy of Windows" which appears at startup. I was going to try system restore, but if someone had a better solution, it'll be great.

Hi -
I've been running Windows 7 since it was new. Now, out of the blue sky it's got this message in the bottom right corner saying "This copy of Windows is not genuine", and, just above that, "Build 7601".

When I googled this, it appears that there are many "fixes" for this. Some of them give complicated installs and uninstalls of Windows 7 fixes, updates and patches. Sounds like a great way to seriously mess my computer up.

Is there a known, simple fix for this?

Thanks in advance.

Doug
 

A:This copy of Windows is not genuine

First off, try just shutting windows down from the start button, and choose restart in safe mode. Mess about a bit in case Windows needs a bit of time to look around. I.e. run chkdsk in read-only mode just in case there has been a bit of corruption. Then if all is clear, restart again into normal mode. This has been known to work, and is quick and simple. Luck.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop which used to run Windows Vista until I upgraded to Windows 7 around a month ago. I verified the licence key with microsoft and it worked up until a few days ago. All of a sudden I turned my computer on to finds a windows error message telling me that i need to activate windows and that i may be running counterfeit software. I am sure that its not counterfeit.I dont have anything on my computer that isnt backed up so I tried to complete a system restore. This didnt work because my system says that I do not have any restore points. I tried reinstalling windows with the cd, but it says it cant because the disk is going to fail soon. The only way I have any functionality with my computer is when I use it in safe mode, but i still cant use and microsoft program because windows says its not activated. I have tried everything I could possibly think of to solve this problem including running free editions of avast antivirus, superantispyware, and malwarebytes, but nothing has worked. I cant run active kill disk or dban. Many programs say that locale data files are missing when i try and open them.

Is there any way that I can solve this problem?

Edit: When I start my computer normally i get prompts asking me to activate my windows software, but i cant activate it through these prompts. I get error code 0x800700B7

Having discovered that my copy of Windows 7 (Ultimate) is not genuine, I am in the process of purchasing the software from Amazon.

My question is a simple one:

When I have the new software do I need to reinstall Windows onto a clean disc, or is it sufficient to enter the key from the new package onto the already installed but non-genuine version?

A:This copy of Windows is not genuine.

Generally you can do that and it will work. Depends on where you got the pirated source from as I have seen cases where these copies are obtained from legitimate MSDN (or some other Microsoft) media and there's nothing inherently wrong with them until someone comes along and either gives you a bad product key or cracks it. If you simply were given a bad product key, putting in the new product key should be sufficient; if however the Windows installation came from dubious sources or was modified in odd ways, I would suggest you reinstall as you never know what bad software could have been included in it.

I called Tech Support and they told my that the warranty had expired and it will cost me $59 for them to give me a fix.
