Windows 7: What does “victim of counterfeit software” really mean?

19 Jan 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
What does “victim of counterfeit software” really mean?


I wanted to follow up on our last post about Windows activation – a friend of mine had posted on Facebook about seeing a notification from Windows that he might be a “victim of counterfeit software”. Following his status update, someone else commented on his post and said that he didn’t understand how anyone could be a “victim” of counterfeit software. Let’s talk about what that means, because it’s really an important topic to consider. It’s critical that you to know what to look for when purchasing genuine Windows so you can avoid the risks of counterfeit software.
