Windows 7: "This Copy of Windows is not Genuine" BUT IT IS

Don't call them or give them your key because than they block it. Mine's a real version too, everything worked fine until today. Paid for it unseal and unbroken so I can't see how they insist it's pirated. I think it has something to do on their end.

Too late, I had to contact paypal and make a dispute and they blocked my Gen. Key. It worked fine and validated before, so I don't don't why all of sudden it's is a problem now. $164 bucks that I hope I can back. GRR. I don't see why they can't issue me another key.

I bought it on ebay and than after I got it, a month later the seller said someone hacked their account but the seller sent me the product sealed air tight, But now they are not member of ebay anymore. It's a version of Microsoft. Tight plastic seal [like in the stores] Had the uspn number of Microsoft that sealed the box, I'm the only one who opened it and the Genuine Key was on the back of book like usual after you open it and see the manual. So, I can't see how it's supposedly a downloaded genuine key when I'm the only that opened it. The CD says Microsoft Genuine in the holographic way.

CD's match the Booklet and box numbers. Can't see how that's pirated. I didn't download it off some warez site. Like Microsoft says. I have the black box came in, the holographic CDs, the yellow Genuine key. and the clear casing that holds the CDs' Doesn't make sense.

How do you think they blocked your Gen. Key if it was sealed inside on the back of the book ????

I called Microsoft about the problem, guy asked me for Genuine Key, I gave it to him and the next thing I know when I go to website to trouble shoot. Comes up as blocked, and the guy on the phone kept insisting that I download the software and that the genuine key was pirated. I'll call again tomorrow and try to talk to Bill Gates.

** okay it said the hologram is not suppose to be sticker and I just tried it and sure it enough it peeled off, hmm; Now I'm curious, how that could be faked when it was sealed so airtight and packaged like Microsoft. That is so weird. grr. Hope, I get my money back $164, that's a lot to lose and looks so like Microsoft.
