Type 'Inactive Windows' in the box and see whether the version is genuine or not. If the operating system is a genuine one, a message will be displayed stating "Activation was successful" with a logo of Microsoft on the right side of the screen.
Online verification The user can also verify that Windows 7 is genuine or not by going to the official website of Microsoft and using the validation mechanism that determines the genuineness of an operating system. One may have noticed while downloading updates for Windows that the system asks for a verification to continue the download process. The user should always connect to the web using Internet Explorer and download updates only from the official website.
Offline verification Another way of checking whether Windows 7 is genuine or not is by going to the 'Control Panel' of the system where one can find an option of system and security. The user needs to click on 'System' and go down to the option of 'Windows Activation'. If Windows 7 is genuine; it will show that Windows is activated along with its product details. This box will also display Microsoft logo to confirm its genuineness.
