Over the last month I've been getting messages from Microsoft telling me my computer didn't pass the test results for a genuine copy of Windows. Went to the place today where computer was purchased and the store manager did something with the license key.
Now the notifications are gone, but then I clicked on Control Panel>Security Center and saw that Automatic Update was OFF. Turned it back on again, and went to the Microsoft Update site where I saw the latest update that needs to be downloaded--Windows Genuine Advantage Notification (KB905474).
I was told at the computer store that what had occurred on my computer was that a bug from the past might have infected my computer and changed the license key of Windows and therefore Microsoft didn't accept my copy of Windows. After the manager fixed the computer, he said everything was fine. But now I have a very bad feeling in my stomach after finding out what Microsoft wants me to download.
Please tell me whether or not I've been duped and what I should do.
And, yes, Windows XP was preinstalled in the computer when first bought.
