Message from Windows 7: "Your copy is not genuine." Possible causes and solutions to the problem
Fans of pirated software often face unpleasant surprises when such components stop working. And the unofficial assemblies of Windows 7 are no exception. “Your copy is not genuine” is a message that signals the constant verification of activation, which leads to very unpleasant consequences. But to get rid of this annoying text and disable the processes associated with the test, you can quite simply. Further, several basic methods will be considered, with the use of which it is strongly recommended not to use any one option, but to apply them in the following sequence (except for the activation of the system, which will be discussed separately).
Message: "Your copy of Windows 7 is not genuine." Causes of
The fact that before the tenth modification all the OS systems were paid, it is not necessary to say. In the seventh (unlicensed) version, a special notification service is responsible for checking the official purchase of this software, which is enabled by default and is always in an active state, which is why many problems arise.
Besides it, the appearance of the notice “Your copy of Windows 7 is not genuine” may also be associated with the spontaneous installation of the service pack KB971033. What is most interesting is that a text appears on the screen indicating exclusively the assemblies 7601 or 7600. As a result, some important system functions are blocked (it is impossible to change the screen saver on the screen, instead of which there is a black background with text, etc.). And this, of course, causes some inconvenience in the work, although the main OS modules work without problems, but the system is constantly overloaded.
But in the global sense, there is a universal explanation for unlicensed copies of Windows 7 (build 7601). "Your copy of Windows ..." - a message that appears in the casewhen after installing updates Microsoft services check the license key, which, as it turns out, is not in the database because it is already used on another computer. On the other hand, the use of such unofficial releases is already illegal, so this should be borne in mind.
How to activate Windows 7 in the simplest way?
Consider the easiest way to resolve the problem within a couple of minutes. Although most experts do not recommend using such a technique, considering it unsafe or even illegal, many users get rid of the notice “Your copy of Windows 7 is not genuine” by using system activation. Naturally, if the user does not have the number of the officially acquired license, you will have to use third-party programs created by enthusiasts of their business.
First you need to download and launch the KMSAuto Net activator and select the system activation in its interface by clicking the appropriate button. The process will take a few seconds, after which it will be added to the schedule to “re-activate” the system every 10 days (this will happen in the background and unnoticeable to the user).By the way, with its help you can register the full Microsoft office suite of any release version and any year of development in the same simple way.
How to remove the authenticity of Windows 7: step-by-step instructions for the system updates
But you can use quite legal methods for disabling verification. Suppose build 7601 is used. “Your copy of Windows is not genuine” —the message, as already mentioned, was due to the installation of one of the updates. Hence the conclusion: it must be removed and disabled in the future so that it is not installed again.
To do this, you first need to go to the "Update Center" and in the settings of the download and installation parameters, set the value for downloading updates, providing the installation decision to the user.
Next, from the Control Panel modules (the usual “Control Panel”), the program and component section is selected, and then the installed updates are viewed. In the list we find the update with the above number and uninstall it through the right-click menu.
If it does not appear there, you can use the command line, running as an administrator, where you enter the command indicated above, but with the number 971033, and press the enter key.
Setting up subsequent updates
The build 7601 seems to have cleared."Your copy of Windows is not genuine" after such actions will not appear. But the update will still be downloaded in the future for installation.
It must be completely isolated. This is done through the same "Update Center" when the system completes the search for available updates. In this case, you need to open the list, find the above update there and use the right click to apply the hide command. After that, it will be possible to re-enable the automatic update without a request to install the found packages, because even in this search variant, the update with the specified number, even if it is on the list of available updates, will be simply ignored by the system, not only not installing, but not loading.
Deactivating the SPPsvc service
Now let's look at another Windows 7 tool. “Your copy is not genuine” as a message can be removed by deactivating the corresponding service. But first, in the "Explorer" in the view menu, set the display of hidden objects (folders and files) and remove the check mark from disabling the display of extensions of the registered file types. This will be needed for further action.
Then you need to go to the services section through the administration or via the "Run" console, in which you enter the services.msc command. In the list of processes, find the software protection component, call the parameter editing menu and click the stop (disable) button.
After that, in the "Explorer" you need to go to the System32 directory and through a search query to find files that have the extension, as shown in the figure, and then delete all the objects found (as a rule, there will be only two).
Disable Registry Authentication Request
There is another Windows 7 tool. “Your copy is not genuine” is removed through the registry. Of course, it’s not the appearance of the message itself that turns off, but the service responsible for authentication.
We call the editor with the command regedit in the Run menu (Win + R) and use the HKLM branch in which we need to go down through the Software folder to the Winlogon directory, which has the Notify directory containing the WgaLogon section, which needs to be deleted (similar to XP). Upon completion of the procedure should be a complete restart of the system.
Here, it seems, the question of how to fix "Your copy of Windows 7 is not genuine," is basically resolved. But sometimes all of the above actions may not work.Therefore it is necessary, what is called, to make a control shot.
Go to the System32 directory and delete or rename the executable objects WgaTray (EXE file), WgaLogon (DLL) and LegitCheckControl (another dynamic library with the extension DLL). Please note that in case of conducting preliminary actions in the system registry, these files may not appear here (they are deleted automatically during actions with the WgaLogon registry directory).
However, copies of the first two components remain in the DLLCache folder, which is nested in the System32 directory. Thus, it will be necessary to perform similar actions in this section. Again, after that it is desirable to perform a full reboot of the system.
Here is a brief summary of what tools are available in Windows 7. “Your copy is not genuine” - the message is, of course, not a pleasant one. Nevertheless, you can get rid of this annoying notice, and even blocking some of the functions of the system, by the above methods.
What to use? Although not welcome, I think the KMS activator is the simplest solution. True, the process will be repeated cyclically, and the program itself in a portable form cannot be deleted, but this will not affect the performance of Windows or the consumption of system resources in any way.In addition to this application, a lot of similar programs can be found on the Internet, but their use causes many legitimate doubts in terms of security and the critical consequences of launching such components for the whole system.
If we are talking about the use of legal methods and tools that are available in the system, it is undesirable to use only one of the above steps, and use all the steps in the form of performing the step-by-step described sequence. Only in this case can we guarantee that at some specific stage the system will not be blocked again, and an annoying message with a black background will not appear instead of the normal design of the “Desktop”. However, it may very well be that, depending on the system assembly itself, absolutely all the tools will not be needed, and it will be possible to confine ourselves to something one.
It remains to add that all the described solutions to eliminate this problem are equally applicable not only to assemblies 7601 or 7600. They also work on other versions when a permanent check is installed in the system, which is in the active state. At the same time, even editing the registry parameters should not cause any particular difficulties for users of all levels of training.
In any case, at least one of the tools above can solve the problem of system authentication at any stage. But, if we approach the issue of legality, it is better to use legal copies of installed systems and service packs and not “self-made” releases. This can save the user from potential problems in the future, for example in situations where the system for some reason has to be restored to a certain point. And this is precisely what can provoke the fact that all the settings used in the described methods will be reset, and the user's efforts will simply come to naught.
In extreme cases, for that matter, you can easily find a huge amount of resources on the Internet, where you can download installation distributions that are already “cured”, or have a so-called “tablet” in them, and not deal with the installation of unlicensed software on your own . But even here the owner of a computer with such a copy is not immune from the fact that at one point, the system will stop functioning normally only for the reason that it is illegal. So it is worth thinking a hundred times before using this kind of manual assembly.Otherwise, the problems may not end there.
