    Hi people. I had a fully functional windows that was updating and everything but I had that stupid "This copy of windows is not genuine. :mad: I went on line an used the SLMGR -REARM command:eek::evil2: it sent my laptop back to the stone age.
    I seem to have lost windows update. it wont let me apply themes. and to top it all off I read somewhere that it is only temporary fix. I tried to do a restore but it didn't make the slightest difference. i am an artist with the entire adobe suite on my laptop which I cant afford to replace.
    any help with out a clean install, would be most appreciated.:worthy:

    Also without fail image the drive with weekly incremental backups so you don't have to learn the hard way how valuable your data is to you ;)
