Ubuntu unactivated Windows?

Well last night, i put to sleep on ubuntu, and when I turned it back on today, it froze, flashing a bunch of euro signs, so I hard shut down.

Now when I booted onto Windows, it said it was not genuine, but when i logged on, it said it was activated (I activated a long time go using the key Toshiba provided with an upgrade disc.

Have you run A/V software for a full scan? Sounds like you picked up something while browsing with Ubuntu, and it wormed onto your windows drive.

I agree with LiquidSnak.

Scan with updated antivirus. Restart in safe mode, scan with updated version of free Malwarebyte's Antimalware. Upload the log file here.

Later fresh install the key.
