If you bought the copy of Windows from a shop and know it to be genuine then you need to contact Microsoft. If you bought the computer new with Windows already installed then you should go back to the shop and tell them. If you bought the computer used with Windows installed then you have no guarantee that it is genuine. I assume you got those numbers from the label on the computer, if you did and bought the computer used then it is probably the label for the original wersion of Windows, but someone could have installed a non genuine copy before you got it.

What is the best anti-virus

If you ask 10 people, you will get 10 different answers!

I use Trend Internet Security on my computers and have done so for over 10 years.
Norton tends to be a system hog and really can slow your computer down.
McAfee annoys me as they will renew your coverage automatically without telling you.
There are several decent programs that are free, but I usually tell my clients that they are worth every penny you paid. Support tends to be lacking with some.

Hello, my computer has an 169 ip address, i've tried to renew the ip it wont renew it, but other computer works fine on the same router, any suggestions how can i get rid of that 169 ip address? thanks

First make sure your network connection is plugged in and working (i.e. look where the cable goes into your computer and has a green light on near it). 169's a re the windows default when no connection is available.

Then, if the cable (or wireless connection?) is OK, click on start > control panel> Netwok and internet connections>

Click on your Lan (ow WLAN?) connection and hit properties.

Navigate down to the 4th (or 5th depending) in the top box to TCP/IP and highlight it, hit properties, and select "automatically configure" for both the IP adress and DNS Servers, hit Apply, then OK, wait a few seconds and you should be good (assuming it's not actually your router handing out the "169" adress.

If all is not well, try a different network cable or port on your router, or get back with more detail.
