First post so I hope this is the right place

I've seen this twice at work. If I go to the computer's properties it says that Windows is activated and genuine. However, sometimes the computer will pop up saying that Windows is not genuine. In the past I have just rebooted the machine and the message would go away for a few weeks. 


Any idea what would cause this?
