Windows 7: This copy of Windows is not genuine appeared today

17 Nov 2015   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit & 64 bit
This copy of Windows is not genuine appeared today

When I started the PC this morning I got the black background with the message Windows 7 Build 7601 This copy of Windows is not genuine appear in the bottom right corner of the screen. I tried to re-activate with no luck and I called the automatic phone number and it said it could not authenticate my version of windows. I upgraded this pc to Win 7 Pro from Win XP a long time ago, it worked fine for a long time, however this PC has not been used in about 8 months.

I installed MGADiag, here are the results;

as your running a volume licence key on a Dell computer, i dont think it will ever activate.

Where did you get the key.

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit & 64 bit

To be honest I can't remember which website I bought it from but it was last year sometime. I have several PC's running, all Dells, that have been upgraded, and like I said this PC has been upgraded and has been running for several months without any problems so I don't know why it decided to show this message today.

So am I SOL?

MAK is usually for business use. Keys are often blocked due to overuse ie piracy.

'Each MAK has a predetermined number of allowed activations, based on your Volume Licensing agreement. To increase your MAK activation limit, please contact your Microsoft Activation Center.'


not accusing anyone - just info

Windows 7 Professional 32 bit & 64 bit

Ok now I have a problem, I don't have a Volume License Agreement, I just bought these licenses from what I thought was a reputable website.

Seems like I need to purchase another Win 7 license, just hope it is a legit one.
