Actually, for curiosity's sake, I just uninstalled the optional security update which I had installed earlier today, rebooted, and now that message is gone. Strange. The update is KB2488113.
My version of Windows 7 is x64 Ultimate, by the way.
I'll still heed your caution though, cryptodan. Thanks again.

....The message came back a while after uninstalling that update....And it only started after these updates. .... It's just weird that the message didn't appear until now, after all these updates were installed. I've had the computer since November.
This Copy of Windows is not Genuine - Windows 7

You get a message - this copy of Windows is not genuine - if you are using a pirated or OEM copy of Windows 7. Sometimes it also presents the message on genuine installations. The article takes a look at the reason and how to remove Windows genuine Advantage message.
Windows 7 says This copy of Windows is not Genuine – WHY?
This copy of Windows is not Genuine If your Windows 7 was working fine and you suddenly start receiving messages saying this copy of Windows is not genuine - for Windows 7, chances are that you must have installed the Windows 7 update KB971033. This Windows 7 update scans for more than 70 activation bypasses to detect if your copy of Windows 7 is genuine or not. If it finds even a single activation bypass, you are in a mess. Windows 7 starts bombarding you with messages that say – this copy of Windows is not Genuine – and reminds you constantly that you need to go for a genuine version.
Windows has tightened the activation bypass test in Service pack 1 due to which, unregistered copies are facing this problem. I wonder if you have a genuine copy. If yes, you can talk to the Microsoft Customer care. If no, the only resort I see is to rollback and remove SP1 from the computer. You can find the SP1 in Programs and Features -> Windows Updates.

I have the same issue as saaty, after installing SP1 I get "Build 7601. This copy of Windows is not genuine". Any help would be great.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Let me check it out. I will post some fix as soon as I get it.
