1. Open command prompt.

2. Type in the command - oobe/msoobe /a - then hit ENTER key.

3. If you get a dialog box saying that "Thanks for using our product" then you have a genuine copy of windows.

4. If the dialog ask you to activate the product then you own a pirated copy of windows.

an easy way is to try to download an MS program like photostory or movie maker, try to install it and it will do a check for you to see if the OS is genuine. HTH

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
