Not sure what happened...a few months ago my windows got seriosuly corrupted and I had to reinstall using e-machines restore cd. I got it working a few months ago, had all the updates, even updated it for the umpteenth time a few days ago...now i turn it on to a message saying i have a fake copy of windows!

What's also weird is now i can't go to a lot of pages that woud be helpful...I clicked on the windows message and when i hit the link to contact microsoft about it it won't load...same thing happens when i try to contact e-machines or use their online tech support (java based window) or hotmail or yahoo mail...it just brings up a blank page or says it could not be displayed
