    This has been working fine for a couple of months, but have recently got a 'Windows Not Genuine' error. I revisted the readme and textfiles from the download, uninstalled the current key and tried with another Dell Ultimate OEM key ( slmgr.vbs -upk/slmgr.vbs -ipk ).

    I reboot after installing the new key, however, I still have the same error.

    Does anyone please have some info on what I could be doing wrong ? I'ved just noticed that Windows activation (from System) states that I must activate today, does that mean I lose access to my system completely soon ?

    Looked at the screenshot and your activation seems to be fine, not quite sure what would flag it as non-genuine. Have you tried validating again? :)

    iNO12,
    He said he just installed the DELL Key so he probably had the OLD Lenovo Key installed before and got flagged for that.
    If he re-validates at M$ he should be fine now.

    Ah yes, that is true. Didn't think of that. In which case truckid just re-validate on the MS site and all should be fine (hopefully). :)

    not genuine

    Yep, tried to validate but it keeps coming back as not genuine

    Went to the ms genuine url suggested above, it run a small addon in Internet Explorer and came back with the same 'Windows running on this pc is not genuine.

    Is there anything else I can check ? My first attempt at resolving it, by uninstalling and installing a new product key - I thought that would have solved it but obviously didnt. I am using remote desktop to access that pc, not that that should make any difference.

    I cant be 100% sure on which key it was, but I think it was a Sony OEM key.

    What I can be sure of is that it was not the Lenovo key. I initially followed info in the sticky posting 'Not genuine after KB971033 update? Read this!' and the value of the line 'Partial Product Key' was NOT 'PMJBM' - i.e. not the blacklisted Lenovo key.

    Also noticed that when I updated my key and I tried to validate, I ended up download and running a MS file called 'WindowsActivationUpdate.exe'. Its got a file version of 7.1.7600.16395 and a size of 155Kb.

    The install DVD? where did you get it from ? if its a "pre activated" or BIE one that may cause the problem! Run Daz's loader and uninstall any loaders that might be there if that is the case! then try to validate again.

    Getting frustrated I tried validation again and this time it work !?!?

    I hadn't changed anything from a few minutes ago when I tried to validate and it failed. Very strange.

    Anyway, it seems to be working fine (for now). Is there a generic loader check I can run to see if there are any other potential loaders running ?

    Thanks alot guys (or gals), it had been frustrating me for days. A re-install and configuration would have cost me hours/days
