The not genuine message
- I bought my computer from a store that put them together. I took a Microsoft download of
upgrade and as a result get a message that the software is not genuine when starting and
finishing. I paid the full and proper price and now have to put up with this graffiti. Other than
paying again, how can I get rid of this graffiti? Presumably this is now impossible. I did not even
want any sodding upgrades.
Meanwhile, let this be a warning to others. Accept nothing you do not actually want.
- Thanks for the information. The effect on the screen is nasty, plus they cause a slow countdown
to continue use.
The immediate solution (should it happen to anyone else) is to go to System Update and go
back before the invasion, then block automatic updates.
Microsoft has lost any goodwill I had towards it.
