Default "Microsoft Not Genuine" But It Is Activated?

Thank you to anybody who takes the time to try and help me with this;

I have had my computer for around 10 months now and i have recently been getting a message when i start up my computer saying "This copy of windows is not genuine" (I have windows 7 Home premium) but when i look in the properties of my PC it tells me that i have an activated version of windows.

I yet to receive the common message that appears in the corner of the screen that tells me that is not genuine and i also don't have the black back ground.

The message will only pop up when i start up my PC which is also strange. If there is anything else i can do to make this easier for you to help diagnose the problem then don't hesitate to ask me.


Thank You For Any Help,
Robert

Head over to Microsoft and check your software, You'll download their software and it will check and repair any damaged or moved activation files.

Genuine Microsoft Software
