“This Copy of Windows is not genuine” Error- How to fix

I cannot get rid of the “This Copy of Windows Is not Genuine” build 7601. The SLMGR -REARM command has always worked for me, when needed I just refreshed the number of rearms with the procedure described above, but suddenly it stopped working. I don’t have black screen, but in the bottom right corner there is the note that it’s not genuine (build 7601). I’ve tried literally everything but nothing works. Could you please help me out?


Why do you have “This Copy of Windows is not genuine” Error? How to fix?

Our computer will always appear all sorts of mistakes when we use. Are you annoying to get “This Copy of Windows is not genuine” Error? You should know this is not a problem can be ignored, because this error can cause your computer black screen or collapse directly. So why do you have “This Copy of Windows is not genuine” Error? There are following reasons:

Reason 1. Some users go cheap and purchase oem/system builders oem when they want to upgrade. In most cases it will install, activate, and declared as genuine but months or even in some cases years later be declare non-genuine. The oem/system builders oem disk is legal, to use it as an upgrade is violation of microsofts eula.

Reason 2. This copy of windows is not genuine occur when your operating system expires are you’ve outdated one. I recommend you to keep updated your OS frequently either it may make a path for this genuine error with misconfiguration the system. Some users will upgrade their computers motherboard when the original goes bad or just to upgrade and will still use the original oem/system builders operating system. This will also activate, and be genuine but…Any time you upgrade the motherboard, per microsofts oem eula, you must purchase a new os so it could also be declared non-genuine at any time.

Reason 3: The Network Service account must have full control and read permissions over that registry key. This situation may be the result of applying a Plug and Play Group Policy object. Because the Licensing service uses Plug and Play to obtain hardware ID information and binds the license to the computer, this setting can result in an activated system appearing to be out of tolerance. The default permissions of the Plug and Play policy do not grant the Licensing service the appropriate rights to access the Plug and Play service. The Licensing service runs under the Network Service account.

Manual guides to fix this error

Maybe the reason of above illustrate that is difficult to understand for you, because not everyone has enough computer knowledge, so we need professional guidance and help. And I can suggest you that, Don’t buy Windows OS from any third parties. Because I have seen many comments in this post that so many people getting non genuine error, even though they use original OS which was bought from third-parties store only, then you will avoid much trouble about this error.

Step 1: Press “Windows+ R” key at the same time, and enter the “CMD” on the search bar and run it.
