If it is all to hard for you, install Linux, it's FREE. Hundreds of choices ( they are called distro's ) use google to find out all you need to know.

"build 7601,Thisa copy of win7 is not genuine"
Is telling you that you do not have a legal copy of Windows 7. If you purchased a computer that came with Windows 7 preinstalled, contact the manufacturer of your system to resolve this. If you upgraded to Windows 7 or installed it from a DVD that you purchased in a sealed package from a reputable source and still have the packaging and key information, try keying the key in again, but if this does not work, you will need to contact Microsoft on the phone to resolve this. If you upgraded or installed Windows 7 from a download, a borrowed DVD, or a purchase on eBay or other similar site, you will need to purchase a legal copy from a store or reputable online store (Newegg, Tigerdirect, etc.) and enter the included key to activate.
If you cannot or will not spend the money, then save your files and download a free version of Linux and change over your OS to that.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I see this problem randomly occur following Windows updates. In XP, Vista and Win 7 the Windows Genuine Validation tool gets reset and suddenly shows the copy is not genuine. Most cases just require getting the code form the COA sticker and re-entering it and re-activating it online. On rare occasions the phone activation is needed.

It has occurred on any of the OEM's such as DELL, HP and others and even the clone systems. Lately I have received calls from users at least once a week for the last couple of months.

Permanent cures have not been posted to prevent this from happening or any fixes from Microsoft.

I know the systems that have been in for service were valid systems including DELL with the factory OEM sticker.

If someone knows a specific reason or cure I would be interested to know it too.

rich1949, these came up straight away from googling, just a matter of running & rebooting. I have not tried or know any more, other than what you can read on these sites.

Same as rich1949, I've recently come across instances where oem systems suddenly fail the 'genuine' test. Part of the problem is that if you check the CD key that is actually installed, it won't match the one stuck on the machine itself - it's the way oem systems are set up, so the fix I've used is the registry 'hack' to allow changing the key to match the one on the case &, touch wood, this has always worked so far.
