Windows 7: This copy of Windows is not genuine

This copy of Windows is not genuine

Suddenly my Windows 7 gave me that message. When I tried to activate I got a message that said there was a problem.

Got the run around but still can't activate. No way can I find the phone number to call and get support. What do I do now? Does anyone have the phone number for activation or support?

If you are trying to activate an OEM version i think you need to use slui 3 to activate.

What is supposed to happen when you do that? On my system, all that happens is an box pops up lower right that says this copy of windows is not genuine. When I click on it, same old procedure which I've done many times. Never does it give a phone number to call and get help.

Not an OEM version, it is an upgrade version.
