Window's 7 acting up build 7601

It has been a year or so since I got my computer with a full running copy of Windows 7 Ultimate...
All of a sudden after about 6 months of owning the computer i get a message when i turn my computer back on saying

Windows 7
Build 7601
This copy of windows is not Genuine.

I bought this computer from a guy my friend knew and now i feel like i got ripped off because of this...Is there any way to fix it... tried to contact Microsoft...unresponsive.

I will be live on

Thanks again

    He probably used some sort of activation crack that's been disabled by an update. If you didn't get a valid key from the one that installed it then you're going to have to spring for a legit copy.

    If so how?
  5. We don't discuss such things here. You need a valid key.
