Two days ago I started receiving notifications that I was not running Genuine Windows. However, I definitely have a legal version of Windows (I am running Windows 7 Home Premium with a 64-bit operating system).
First, I just closed the notification. After another notification or two, I followed up by clicking on the message that said something like "Resolve Problem Online." I hope that I did not make things even worse by installing and running a file called WindowsActivationUpdate.exe.
At first I thought that it solved the problem, but the notifications keep coming.
I have completely scanned my system with the paid version of Spybot. No serious problems were found, but I fixed the few issues that did come up.
I am still getting the notifications.
Could somebody please help.
