    I have a pc with win 7 that was activated using removewat just after installing, after some time I ran a sfc /scannow command and now windows is not activated and shows the "not genuine" watermark on desktop.

    I have checked some other activation methods (since the removewat says its now outdated), but I read that they work for RTM versions, and I already have sp1 so I guess I dont have a RTM version.

    What activation method should I use to reactivate my windows?

    And does the sfc command completely uninstalled removewat (because if I try to click "activate windows" i get a "you may not have the appropiate permissions..." error, so I guess is not completely uninstalled)?

    I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
