Default Anybody running a pirated copy of Windows 7?

And is it genuine? I used a pirated W7 on my netbook and ran a loader after, it was genuine for 2-3 days and then my background went black and it keeps giving me the counterfeit message. My friend used the same copy/loader on his computer months back and his is still genuine. Is there something I'm doing wrong, or do I need to use a different key when installing the OS?

It's tough bro. Microsoft has really stepped their game up against pirated versions of their OS. Looks like using the same key flagged it up though, that's why the quick termination. You can try and find another but even if you do, the loading times is slower than the original OS, not to mention it will be a matter of time before they cut it again.

Thanks for this, I'll give it a look. I don't want to go back to XP.

I am, like yours it was running fine for a while, then it came up with a thing in the bottom corner saying "your copy of windows is not genuine" I googled that and found some other patch or something to download off pirate bay. She's running like a beauty now

Oh and make sure auto updates are turned off.

Thats my amateur 2 cents. If i can get it sussed, I'm sure you'll be able to as well.

i've never tried this but i always wanted to. re-install the copy of windows 7 but change the system date to an acceptable date(basically the year the beta was released). you can accomplish this in the bios.
