I do not think anyone really knows what MS is up to. I have heard that once every 3 months, for a while the Update will be reissued, giving everyone a chance to install it or reinstall it. After a number or tries, they plan to take action. Is it true, I do not know.

I went to download the new update to XP mode the other day and was prompted to validate before it would let me. An update to the validation check was installed during the process and now KB971033 shows up in my update history.
Sooner or later you are going to have to install it if you want to keep windows 7 patched up to date. Any body that has ever used Microsoft products knows they occasionally get it wrong. So a false positive isn't a big surprise. If you think your install is legit follow the instructions and give Microsoft a call.

Hello this is my first time as a member so I apologize if I forget the protocols. I am running windows7 ultimate x64. I did clean install and windows was genuine and activated for 2 months. Now Im getting this is not a genuine copy of windows and needs to be activated. Can you suggest some steps that could fix this or disable the message at least. Thank you

If you are not legit you will find out quickly. If you are, it will be solved.
