Hello, this morning the following message appeared as my wallpaper:

"Windows 7
Build 7600
This copy of Windows is not genuine"

Windows came pre-installed on my laptop (i.e. is genuine).
I searched Microsoft, their solution is to run rsop.msc - when I try to do this, I am given the message 'Windows cannot find 'rsop.msc''.

Can anyone help?

Many thanks in advance.

Hey,

And what Toshiba notebook you have exactly?

Was Windows 7 preinstalled or another OS?
What product key you can find on bottom side of your computer?

If the laptop was supplied with the version of W7 now installed you should be able to activate it by phone (only by phone) with the certificate of authenticity on the bottom of the laptop.

Hi

Toshiba preinstalled image is already activated and does not need to be activated again…
Also the serial key at the bottom of the unit will not help you. It belongs to the image (OEM version) which is already installed and activated…
