Hi, i just built a new computer and purchased windows 7 OEM 64 bit. I installed it and when it went to activate it said it was not valid or that i may have a counterfeit copy, which i don't. I have read that i may have to call microsoft, can anybody help me out ?

Call Microsoft. The call to Microsoft is painless. They'll give you some big long string of characters to enter, but it works.

There's really no way around this.

Are you sure you typed the key correctly? Did you mix up a o and 0? B and 8? If you are sure then definitely call.
