Windows 7: 'Ask for genuine Microsoft Software' in My computer properties

'Ask for genuine Microsoft Software' in My computer properties

Hey guys, I have a genuine copy of Windows 7 Home Premium but when I right click on 'My Computer' and go to 'Properties' I see this (image attached). Is this normal or is something wrong in my system?

And when I go here (Genuine Microsoft Software), I get a message saying, "Because Windows installed on your PC is genuine, enjoy the security, reliability and protection it provides."

What shall I do? Is that message of 'Ask for genuine Microsoft Software' in the properties of My Computer normal?

Thank you.

Hi,

That image as shown is absolutely normal - you don't need to do anything. Its simply the genuine software logo.

Here is one from mine.

Regards,
Golden

I agree with both other posters. The 'flag' is perfectly normal. If your system had been found non-genuine, You'd have a black desktop and a very visible watermark on it.
FWIW, there's nothing 'personal or identifiable' about your Product ID - it's shared with a few tens of thousands of others

Having said that, if you have any reason to suspect that your system may be non-genuine (or you're just curious), please post an MGADiag report so that we can check it out.

To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
(download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
- **in your own thread**, please
Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
