this may sound like a stupid question but are you actually running Windows 7?

I dont know anything.I had a very bad virus on it about 14 months ago.The screen all blue with red writing saying Warning.I looked up someone in the paper who took my laptop and cleared the virus and put on another anti virus.Never had any trouble until last night?

G, are you getting any other problems?
This error can be quite serious, but only in conjunction with other 'happenings'.
Couple of questions:

Can you confirm the copy of Windows 7 you are using is genuine? * (i.e. was preloaded on your computer)
Do you use Norton as security?

Rgds,

it is possible that you have a pirate copy of Windows - difficult to say more based on what you have said

Was Windows 7 installed when you got your computer, as it sounds as if you may not have got the full one just a trial.

You could try asking Errol he could advise you better.

Last night i got a pop up that said "Windows 7" Build 7601 Then it says "This copy of windows is not genuine" ??I have done a full scan that took a few hours and only i item found and deleted.Even after this i am still getting this message.Anyone else had this?


Laptop proved useless after trying to get back to factory settings.Thought i might have had a virus?.Bought a new laptop tonight and told the salesman about my old lappy.He thinks something illegal was done on it.Norton anti virus is now on this one. Windows 8 and different again from windows 7
