Without your windows operating system being activated you will not be able to get windows updates its a windows security thing, however if you have the activation code go into your control panel and go into windows activation to activate. If you do not have the activation key a lot of times its on the computer itself you may have to go back to the original operating system that was on before the restoration then call up Microsoft and they will I hope this helped good luck

How to solve a victim software counterfeiting?


Hi,

There is no method to solve this thing. When you use fake serial or use any crack/patch on your microsoft installation, it gets detected by online resources of microsoft during online activities.

You should try to reinstall your windows, but then, next time while updating, checkoff the update I'm mentioning below. The following update of windows checks genuine software so better not to install them.

  • Update for Windows 7 (KB971033)
  • Download size: 1.2 MB
  • Update type: Important
  • This update to Windows Activation Technologies detects activation exploits and tampering to key Windows system files. These exploits try to bypass regular Windows activation and are sometimes included within counterfeit copies of Windows.
