Preferred Solution: laptop says copy of windows 7 not genuine but it is 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.)

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.

It is a retail copy and has been running fine for a few years.

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

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.

Help please. I've searched and saw many threads on this subject but my situation seems simple. Biostar MB and original copy of Win 7 Pro. I recently reformatted my HD and did a clean install of Win 7 Pro. Installation and activation went fine.

Because of some other issues I did another reformat and clean install. This time before the install I cleared the CMOS in the BIOS setup of my MB and reverted back to original CMOS settings.

On this Win 7 install I am now getting an error message in the lower right hand corner of the desktop saying: "Windows 7 build 7601 copy of Window not genuine". This message occurs after I do a Windows update.

I feel this has something to do with the clearing of the CMOS and it should be an easy fix. What's my next step to correct this? thanks

Any help ???

A:This copy of windows is not genuine.

You shouldn't have edited your Registry without making a backup. Put your Windows 7 DVD in the drive and boot off of that and choose Fix Your Computer. Get to Command Prompt and type chkdsk /R and press enter. Check Disk will try and fix any errors. After you get Windows going again, you are going to need to activate it and make it genuine with a correct product key, if you have a Pirated Copy we cannot help you here due to forum rules

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.

Mine is and I am 100% sure of this because there is an authenticity sticker with activation code on the bottom of my laptop and my computer itself says that the copy is genuine in the 'properties' section of my computer. 
 
  Do I have a virus? My kaspersky has noted:

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.

A:This Copy Windows Is Not Genuine???

Welcome to TSG....

Call Microsoft and talk to them about the possibility of purchasing a legal copy of the Windows XP for your computer. Believe it or not this is the only way that you are going to be told thru this forum

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.

A:Not genuine copy of windows?????

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.

First off you are using a rather ancient build of Windows 7. I would suggest that you scrap the build for 7100 which is the Release Candidate (you can still get a key for it) or go for build 7600 which is the final version in stores...

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?

That's not your OEM Product Key, that's your Product ID. If you happen to have a genuine product key, Click Change product key and enter it, that will solve the problem.

Your installation of Office is based on a stolen and blocked Volume License Key.

Hi,
 
Last November I built a new computer. I purchased a copy of Windows 7 Pro from eBay and it came with a product key. I installed the OS using the product key and everything was fine and everything has worked successfully since then.
 
A few minutes ago, I noticed that there was a message in small type in the lower left corner of my screen. It said:
 
Windows 7
 
Build 7601
 
This copy of Windows is not genuine.
 
I figured something had temporarily gotten screwed up so I did a restart, expecting the message to go away when the computer started up again. This time a window opened and the message in it told me that my copy of Windows was not genuine and it gave me the option to upgrade to a valid copy, or to "Remind me later".  I clicked Remind Me Later and when the reboot was finished, my wallpaper disappeared and I had a black background. All of my desktop icons still seemed to be there. And the message that I originally got was still posted in the lower right hand corner.
 
I noticed that there were some updates available, so I went into Windows Update and installed them, hoping that this would fix the problem, but no such luck. Same as before.
 
Does anyone have any idea why, after 9 months, this message should begin to show up, and how I can get rid of it?
 
Thanks in advance.

I have a Family Pack for Windows 7 Home Premium that was purchased from Office Depot about 6 months ago and only installed on one computer. About a week ago when I logged in I got a blue screen with "Windows 7; Build 7600; This copy of Windows is not genuine" in the lower right hand corner and Windows 7 will not start. 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. Why should I have to pay for a fix for something that is obviously a bug in Windows 7? Is there something I can do to correct this short of reinstalling Windows 7?

A:This copy of Windows is not genuine

Thats a stupid situation, I don't understand how can they say that.
Do you remember if you enabled auto updates or not? Do you have Service Pack 1 installed?

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 have a 3-DVD recovery program that I used to reset my PC to factory install. After a while of tweaking with optimizations and stuff, I noticed the disclaimer on my background saying my copy is not genuine

I did many things, like before when I reset my BIOS firmware. Other than that, while tweaking I:

-Fine tuned visual settings for better performance
-Removed unnecessary startup programs
-Disabled/stopped the following services:






Quote:
Block Level Backup Engine Service
Bonjour Service (from iTunes)
Certificate Propagation
Group Policy Client (if not on domain)
HomeGroup Listener
HomeGroup Provider
Offline Files
Portable Device Enumerator Service
Security Center*
Software Protection (make sure you activate Windows first)
SSDP Discovery
Windows Defender*
Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service
Windows Search


The "Software protection" make me most suspicious. I didn't have an issue like this before.

I also Removed the installation and re-install Xubuntu. Also before I even did all this, I wiped my drive to all 0s.

A:Non-genuine copy of Windows 7 :(

Looks like you disabled Software Protection too soon. Windows takes a while to check on activation.

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.
