Hi there very weird problem,

a friend turned on his pc this morning, and for some unknown reason when windows starts up the bottom right handside shows the generic not genuine watermark and a box comes up saying that the software isnt genuine, and to resolve now or later, once clicked on later windows loads up correctly, the desktop doesnt have the embosed logo which is really weird as from what ive seen it should be a blue or black screen with the watermark on the bottom right, this isnt the case, and windows updates work wga passed correctly showing the key to be correct the key is also on the side of tghe box and is a genuine key, i really dont want to reformat, ive done the usual scans and cannot find anything malicious currently running a kespersky online scan just in case but my usual applications mentioned on this site and havent found anytyhing
does any one have any comments or ideas on how to resolve this?


many thanks

Does this key match the eula sticker on the side?

Does the installed OS match?

Some well meaning wantabee techs repair and then crack windows with the wrong disk

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
