Resolving ‘Windows Not Genuine’ Problem

So many of us have been customized to use pirated software. There are two problems of using a pirated software. You might have easily got an ISO file of it in a torrent site but it is as harmful as easily available. A pirated software will be hacked to use limitlessly and it cannot be trusted on our computers. The hacker might have injected harmful code and have modified major security areas of the operating system in favor to him.
While buying computers, we care only about hardware more than software. We are pretty much aware of the fact that software costs a bit high and the computer price might go tall when genuine software is preferred. You may not want to care about genuinity of the rest of the software but you should be careful about operating system at least. Most of the operating systems people use today in the world are not genuine and so exposing themselves to brutal hacks. Yes I mean it!
Windows XP is the most hacked operating system in the world and so Microsoft took over XP for its incurable vulnerabilities. Hacked versions are distributed in the name of genuine versions over the globe. These operating systems work fine until windows try to download updates and security patches from Microsoft (Stopping downloading updates to your operating system except in limited internet accessibility is not recommended at all). Before downloading updates to a operating system, Microsoft updates manager check for the genuinity of the OS and if it is found to be a pirated one shows up a message on the right bottom of the screen saying “You might be the victim of software counterfeiting. Ask for genuine Microsoft windows.”
If you see this message on your computer screen, that means its time to buy a genuine operating system. You may contact your retailer from whom you bought computer if wanted. Besides buying a new operating system, you may want to use your computer without ‘windows not genuine’ message popping up every time you boot it. At those critical emergency times, use the following technique to resolve the issue.
