As of 5 days ago I, I started my computer and it gave me the:
This copy of Windows is not genuine
This is the second time it has happened. Last time I did a system restore and all was peachy. This time, system restore fails every time I try. I cannot format because I don't have the original windows disk. I bought the kit from Newegg several years ago and a previous military acquaintance of mine put it together because he had just finished his degree, through the military, of computer engineering and had a distributable copy of Windows 7 ultimate. I no longer have his contact information so getting the key from him would be impossible.
This is a legal and genuine copy of Windows but I don't have the key to tell Microsoft it is genuine. I ran their program to check if it's genuine and it comes up that it isn't. It says it may be due to some corrupt files. I ran a disk check a few weeks back to eliminate errors and a defrag to attempt to speed my computer up.
Any advice at this point would be helpful. Thanks guys/gals.
I included a screenshot of the bottom right side of my screen if anyone needs reference.
