Hello wadeb 21,

I'm sure I don't have to tell you that this is a very sensitive request, one which I will take great care in answering.

There are tools that you can use to find the product key for your system, you could do a google search to find one that does. Otherwise, one reporting tool that you could use is Belarc Advisor. This tool gives you an overview of your whole system, as well as some more sensitive information. This is information that you wouldn't want posted online, which is why we generally do not use this tool to investigate users' systems, but it should do the job in your case.

Regards,

Ax

Or you can try the Magical Jelly Bean. It will pull the key from the registry for you.

Easiest way: Look around your CPU/laptop, if you bought it pre-installed.

CPU: It should be inside/outside of your CPU. Look around, there are no specific spots where the sticker should be stuck, so it's quite disturbing to open a CPU and look for one, though you need it now.

Laptop: Look below it. Always there. =)

Why not?
Isn't the sticker on the system for Win 7?
Is the installation disk a Genuine Microsoft Installation disk?
Is it downloaded from somewhere?

It is downloaded. One of my friend downloaded o his machine. He installed and he never got such error or problem. I asked him to install on my machine. Now I 'm bugged by this popup 'Ur windows is not genuine'....

Whereas my friend didnt get this same problem.

I am asking specific questions and you are giving us very vague answers.
Did you download Win 7 and if so from where?
Where did the Serial number come from ??
