hi a freind of mine has installed 7077 and because hes not connected the net he cant let win7 activate like we all can and now he gets a popup stating "This not a genuine copy of windows 7". ive tryed explaining to him its due to the software not communicating with a M$ server. is there any way to get past this other than reinstall again (thou the same thing will happen again) Is there any patches to remove the annoying popup that i can pass on to him. ??? thx in advance.
