You may be a victim of software counterfeiting?

Recently this message popped up after I uninstalled a virus protection. I checked my control panel and the product key was different from the one I had purchased originally. When I tried to change the product key it said error 0x800700D. Why is this happening? How can I fix this?

  1. We need more information about the virus software you uninstalled, and what product code was changed?
  2. The virus protection was a norton antivirus program.
  3. I'll get back to you in a second... Just try looking at this thread for a bit.

  4. I might be completely useless on this, but have you actually bought the program?
  5. I think I just fixed my problem I went on google and looked up why norton had changed my windows 7 product key and found this link.

    I downloaded a norton removal tool and removed any trace of norton that was left on my computer and once I did that I restarted my computer went back into the control panel and entered the key again and it worked!
