"Your Windows isn't Genuine" how can I make this message stop showing?

I'm sorry if this is on the wrong forum section.

Some weeks ago I activated my Windows 7 Ultimate 64b and it worked perfectly. But now my computer is nagging about my copy of windows not being genuine. This message keeps popping constantly since yesterday.

How can I make it disappear and never show up again?

The last time it happened to me - I removed the last few Windows Updates, and Windows became genuine again. Do you know if a few Windows Updates got in just before this message began appearing?

[By few WUs, I mean I ran a concocted batchfile, restarted, no more non-genuine problems. There can be a price to pay, one has to have current OS partition backups - just before the message would be best, 2nd best is just before running this can-be-caustic batchfile.]

Well, I managed to fix it now.

All I did was running cmd and entering "SLMGR -REARM". The message disappeared for good now.

How do I stop W7 "calling home" and displaying "not genuine" messages?
MS thinks that one of my PCs is running W7 that's not genuine. It is genuine - at least I bought it from Amazon and paid £141 for it so that - to me - means it's genuine. It may not be but neither Amazon nor MS will take any responsibility for it not being genuine so I've given up with them both. I...
