You may have this issue if you downloaded a copy of Windows 7 or if someone else installed it for you. Either way, there are a couple of different ways to check and make sure that your Windows 7 copy is genuine. Method 1 — Activate Windows Dialog The first way to validate that Windows 7 is genuine is to click on Start, then type in activate windows in the search box.
How to Check if Windows 7 is Genuine?
I’m new here. I’m trying to resolve an issue I’m having and realize I need some help. This is a retail upgrade version I purchased in directly from Microsoft to replace the original Vista that came with the computer. I recently cloned the old hard drive and installed a new one. I replaced the hard drive because I bumped it and it started misbehaving. Now I get continual warnings from “Windows Activation Technologies” that “This computer is not running genuine Windows” error code 0xfe My many attempts to resolve this issue through this dialogue box fail, and I receive “Windows could not be validated as genuine” error.
I’ve called MS Genuine advantage twice. Both support calls level 1 I assume gave me a new installation ID. In both cases they were able to assist me with what appeared to be a successful validation, but I continue to receive the above warnings. Chkdsk completes successfully and SFC mentions some files that cannot be fixed.
I’ve used CCleaner to clean files and to clean the registry. AVG virus scan shows no problems. Spybot shows some adware but it’s been removed and I’m still receiving the warning. No one but me has touched this computer. I’m at a loss. I’ve seen you’ve had some success dealing with this issue, and rather than immediately call MS again, or do a clean or repair installation of Windows, I’m hopeful you can help.

Microsoft explains the issue
Microsoft updated the list of known issues quickly to highlight the issue but did not provide explanation other than that. Administrators had to find a way to work around the issue elsewhere, and the article that we published here on this site helped several administrators. Microsoft published a new support article, KB , on January 10, that explains the activation issue and provides a solution to fix it. The issue started on January 8, at Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Enterprise editions were affected by the issue and probably any other edition using Key Management Service activation.
