Best is to call Microsoft and have them sort it out. http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/

Where did you get Win7? Did you buy it off eBay or download from a website?

If you have a legit copy then try reinserting the Product Key at Computer>properties.

Well, if you got the /7 CD from your friend, then I ask myself whether your friend installed with this CD on his system too. If that is the case, your installation is not valid.
