What indicators would reveal whether or not my computer is legal? In other words, how do I know if my computer is pirated ?

    Does Windows pop up every few minutes and ask you to activate it/buy a legal copy? If so, it's likely a pirated copy.

    Head to Microsoft's page on Genuine Windows and you can run a quick tool to make sure.
