Windows 7: Windows 7 giving WAT not running genuine windows message

29 Jan 2013   #51

Windows 7 Ultimate x64


Just wanted to say I finally got around to running a Repair Install, and i am once again successfully running Genuine Windows. Thanks again for all your help, am just keeping my fingers crossed that this also fixed the error I was getting where I'd restart into lo-res with my user data corrupt which made me run system restore about 25 times. Again, thanks so much for all the time you took to help.
