Windows 7

This copy of Windows is not genuine

Any help greatly appreciated.

Did this Windows come installed on the computer when you bought it? Was it a new computer?

I'd suggest going through this step to talk to a rep and explain your situation:

Activate using the telephone

If Windows isn't able to activate online, you'll have the option to activate Windows 7 using an automated phone system.
  1. Open Windows Activation by clicking the Start button , right-clicking Computer, clicking Properties, and then clicking Activate Windows now.*
  2. Click Show me other ways to activate.
  3. Type your Windows 7 product key, and then click Next.
  4. Click Use the automated phone system. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  5. Click the location nearest you from the drop-down list, and then click Next.
  6. Call one of the available phone numbers listed. An automated system will guide you through the activation process.
  7. When prompted, enter the installation ID that's listed on your screen into your phone's keypad.
  8. Write down the confirmation ID that the phone system gives you.
  9. Type the confirmation ID into the space provided under Step 3 in the activation dialog, click Next, and then follow the instructions.
  10. If activation isn't successful, stay on the line to be transferred to a customer service representative who can assist you.
It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.
