What could be causing my system to get a message after rebooting claiming that my copy of Windows 7 is not Genuine?
If i reboot again it goes away. This doesn't happen every time, but every once in a while.
Its more of a nuisance, rather than an actual system problem.

Hi,

Navigate to here: http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate/...75-cdd0e7c41a8b

It's the Windows validation tool from Microsoft and should fix any validation problems you may be having, or if your Windows is not genuine then will advise you on your next steps.

If everything comes back OK and you're still getting this message, then post a screen shot of it for us to look at.

Casey
