Please describe your how ca i remove microsoft ask genuine licensing software in my windows 7


Actually guys, in using windows 7 you can select either ways of updating your operating but in your case i think you have chosen automatic updates that's why microsoft checks your key if it genuine or not that's the reason why it asks for a genuine license key. In removing it you must have a valid genuine license from microsoft or reformat your PC in order to remove that problem
