A victim of software counterfeiting

If you bought the computer from a computer-store, with Windows pre-installed, then contact Microsoft (1-800-R-U-LEGIT) and report the store for installing a "non-genuine" version of Windows onto your computer.

Otherwise, follow the on-screen instructions to "Get Genuine".
Have your credit-card ready, because you will need to purchase a valid license, and you will get a 25-character product-key that you can input into Windows.
