You're best bet is to attempt to read the last character. Just try entering in a key multiple times with what you think the character is until it works. Then, after you find the right character, write the complete product key somewhere safe for the future.

Was the installation genuine in the first instance?

It's not "not genuine", it's infected.

If it is only 1 character that is wrong then surely 10 tries will find it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
