I may be a victim of software counterfeiting OH NO!
« on: August 29, 2010, 02:42:03 PM »
I've been using this copy of Windows 7 for several months without a problem until it recently decided it wasn't legit. I know there's the occasional genuineness checker thing that comes with the auto-updates, but I usually look through them before I download and I didn't notice anything like that. I'm guessing that is the source.

I had this problem with XP a while back and there was a little program that fixed it, but I can't seem to find one for 7 that works. If anyone has some solutions besides re-installing Windows, I'm all ears.

Sorry, but I can't allow open discussion of this nature:
