Question about Computers & Internet
Good day. Microsoft has released an update that checks your OS serial against a list of known leaked serials (corporate edition keys, etc). If your serial matches one of them then it puts a darling little message on the bottom right hand of your login screen, and also a system tray icon that nags you to buy a genuine copy of windows.It will also pop up a dialog that says "This copy of Windows is not Genuine""This copy of Windows is not genuine and you have not yet resolved this issue. This computer is no longer eligible to recieve select security upgrades from Microsoft. To protect your copy of Windows, you must click Get Genuine now."Every so often a little balloon will pop up that says "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting." Below that it will say "This copy of Windows is not genuine. Click this balloon to resolve now." If you're working on a system that has this running it gets annoying in a hurry. You need to buy a legitimate key which is included in every original windows installation disc.
Hope this information resolve your concern. Have a great day.
