If your Windows is not genuine it will, in due course, present a message to that effect.

✔ Best Answer
I don't know of anywhere on the system you can find it.

The following are methods for checking (Win7 anyhow):

In at least Windows 7 and probably similar in the others (I don't remember in XP and do not use 8) you right click on Computer and select Properties. In there, it will say if it is activated. If it is activated, then it must be genuine.

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

Yes, as per #3. It's there on Win 7 and Vista, not on XP - no idea about Win 8.
