Dell Windows 7 was installed on a
Dell computer from the Dell usb key. Everything was fine until
about 2 months later when the "This copy of Windows is not genuine"
message appeared. Was it a virus, malware or what?
The Microsoft Bug!
It's likely that the report occurs
due to Windows update bugs, computer malware or virus. We've heard that
a horde of Windows 7 users had the problem after build 7601 KB971033
update. Step one: After loading all installed updates, check for update
"KB971033" and uninstall. Restart your PC. If this doesn't work try Step
Right click on cmd file and click on Run as Administrator. It
is must to run command prompt with administrator privileges.
Type SLMGR -REARM (SLMGR is Windows software licensing
management tool. REARM command will reset the licensing status of
machine) and press enter.
Now you will see a confirmation window, click on OK.
Restart your PC.
Thanks to Microsoft for
"thoroughly" testing their software! 713-827-1300
