Windows 7: Windows 7 turns not genuine after 1.5 years

Open explorer, my computer window. Click on the "system Properties button" and scroll down to the bottom. Is it saying that the windows is activated ? If so ? it is OK.

Sometimes if due to some network or other problem if windows fail to get any update, such a non-genuine message may appear.

The problem here is a relatively common one - teh SLIC table is missing from the BIOS.
This happens for one of three reasons.
1) The machine was originally shipped without Windows installed
2) The machine has been repaired by the manufacturer, and they forgot to properly flash the BIOS before it left the factory.
3) The BIOS has been updated with a non-Windows 7-compliant version for some reason.

The solutions to each are:-
1) purchase a license
2) either demand the manufacturer do the jobe properly, or change the Key to the one on the COA sticker (or both)
3) Change the Key to the one on the COA sticker.

@ iquest
Please post a new MGADiag report so we can check that the system is now properly activated.

This is worrying.

From where did you get the link to chat to this 'MS rep'?
Microsoft *could not* show you anything from your computer unless you first gave them access.
Microsoft DO NOT haggle over prices - take 'em or leave 'em is their attitude on that.
You were right to be scared!

I bought the machine in Best Buy 1.5 years ago. I haven't done anything with Windows 7 since then. I believe my license is genuine unless somebody in HP or Best Buy tweaked it. I'm sure I wouldn't buy a refurbished machine; and the manufacturers/vendors normally notify when something is refurbished.

I don't really understand what you are saying about BIOS because I don't have knowledge in this area. What I do know is that about a month ago I started to experiense some issues with my machine I described in the OP.

And yes, the sysinfo says the Windows 7 is activated.

I'll post my new report in the next message.

Many thanks to everybody for their input.

Forgot to add that I went to the Microsoft website, there is a button Chat Now, this is how I initiated a chat with the guy I hope is a MS rep. That was Saturday 8 pm pacific time, so he might as well be from some Indian call center if MS has them there. I did allow him to access my comp. Might have been a mistake. And yes, his attitute/behaviour was that made me to terminate any connection with him.

That report looks fine.

So long as you got the from the MS site, that should be OK - you were probably connected to a contractor, who took the opportunityfor a sales pitch!

What you should do now is a little house-cleaning - just in case the rep was actually telling the truth!

Update your Anti-Virus, then download and install (UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM PRO' at the end of the installation) Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) www.malwarebytes.org and update it, and run a full scan in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.

(this has the advantage of ensuring that every file gets looked at by both the AV and MBAM, for the price of a slightly longer scan time)

post the results of the MBAM scan, and we'll take a look.

There are always 'victoms' - many such are the result of their own actions
In your case, it appears to be a result of poor quality control on the part of the manufacturer.

Enjoy your genuine system!

Just a precautionary note : make sure remote connection is turned off - I'm presuming you allowed that for him to 'diagnose' your system.
