Windows 7: New System Build. Unsure Which License To Buy For Win7 Pro.

New System Build. Unsure Which License To Buy For Win7 Pro.

Clean install of "Win7 Pro Build 7601" on newly built desktop system. During the install I entered OEM "Product Licensing Key" that I purchased off of Amazon. Install finished without any problems. I had not given it a second thought until I started getting the "Windows Not Genuine" message in lower right screen a month later. If the key was invalid it wouldn't have accepted the key. Right? Does anyone have suggestions or insight? Thanks in advance.

Did you also get a Microsoft made DVD with Windows 7 along with the matching COA key?

Hi, Last few days my computer has been extremely slow on startup. Boots up fine, then takes 10 minutes where it will take commands from my mouse but won't actually load anything and then later on will go back to normal-ish speed (I think it's a bit more spiky but could just be me). Yesterday I...
