Windows 7: Temporary Windows Not Valid Message

Temporary Windows Not Valid Message

I've had my laptop for about 4 years, and I was one of the people who upgraded from Windows Vista immediately after purchasing my laptop back when Windows 7 came out.
When I woke my laptop up from sleeping a half hour ago, I had the "Windows 7 Build 7601 This copy of Windows is not genuine" message on the bottom right corner of the screen. After about 10 or 15 minutes of googling around, the message just disappeared...
Is this something I should be concerned about? My version of Windows 7 is 100% genuine, I've had it for 4 years. I worry that this is a sign of things to come or something.
