I forgot to mention:
The EU forced MS to sell Win 7 without WMP.
MS sells Win 7 without WMP, in europe, as the N version.
However, and here's the kicker, Microsoft charges the same price for the N version,
which does not have WMP, as the normal Win 7 that comes with WMP.

Unusual yes -
Counterfeit? that's a whole different consideration, and at the moment, I can see absolutely no reason for saying that it is.

why would one buy a crippled version of Win 7, the N version, when you can get the healthy version for the same price?
This raises questions in my mind.
Why the spelling mistake of the word unknown?
This I find extremely unusual and unbelievable that such would exist in a legal version.

That's the way I see things.

You can install WMP/WMC/DVDMaker into the N Version if you want, from download - some people prefer not to have it present at all, either because they use their own alternatives, or simply don't 'do' media.

I see no cause for suspicion, apart from the source of the package in the first place.

Next time you want to buy Win 7 then go to a store which will be offering Win 7 in a Microsoft-logoed package from Microsoft.

Did your computer come with Win 7? Yes/no.
No karlsnooks it didn't....
