Hi,

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.

How to widen my screen


    • 1 Use the zoom in and out shortcut with your mouse. Many programs such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and Microsoft Word allow users to zoom in and out quickly using their mouse and keyboard. Hold down the "Control" ("Ctrl") key, and then move the mouse wheel forward to zoom in or backward to zoom out until the text fits your screen to your liking.
    • 2 Use the zoom command from your program's menus. If you don't have a mouse with a wheel or the mouse zoom shortcut does not work, try locating a "zoom" command in the "View" menu of your program. Many programs have an option to zoom in and out under the "View" menu, which will make text larger or smaller. You may have to select "Zoom in" or "Zoom out" several times before the text is the right size.
    • 3 Change your screen resolution. Altering your screen resolution can change the size of windows and text on your screen. Right click the desktop, select "Properties" (Windows XP) or "Personalize" (Windows Vista and 7), click the "Settings" tab (XP), or the "Display Settings" link (Vista) or click "Display" and then "Adjust Screen Resolution" (7). Adjust the resolution slider up or down, click "Apply" and then click "OK."

There is a display on my laptop sayin "THIS COPY OF WINDOWS DID NOT PASS GENUINE WINDOWS VALIDATION"


Hi

Once you get windows update through internet and your computer have installed copy of windows operating system. This message will pop up and detected that your windows operating system is just a copy of OS. I suggest you install the original OEM if you don't want this annoying message to pop up to your computer.

The copy of my windows is not genuine, what should i do to make it a genuine


Hi.

You are supposed to purchase a genuine copy of Windows, or a genuine license number.

Purchasing a genuine copy of Windows you will need to reinstall the system afterward.

There are also ways to remove the non-genuine message, one way is for example doing a system restore to a date before the message was displayed. This won't make the copy of Windows genuine. It will simply get rid of the message but you will still not be able to perform updates and to get the advantages of genuine Windows OS.

If there is a license sticker on top of the computer, you can make the copy genuine by reinstalling Windows with the number in the COA sticker.

You can purchase system at nearest computer shop. See for example Windows Vista ..

My computer is showing black screen on window


That is Microsoft's "Windows Genuine Advantage" tool telling you that you have an illegal copy of Windows. You have a couple ways to fix this.
1. Pay Microsoft for a new product key.
2. Remove the Windows Genuine Advantage tool.
3. Contact Microsoft and participate in their Genuine Microsoft Software program.
