How to remove ‘Your copy of Windows is not genuine’ notification in Windows 7?

I want to remove ‘your copy of Windows is not genuine’ notification from my Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit.

I tried to remove the update KB971033 which was possibly the reason for this notification but all the methods (including registry editing and removing some wga file from system32 folder) I found online didn’t worked.

    1. Click Start and type cmd in start menu search box.

    2. Right click the cmd.exe and choose run as administrator.

    3. Choose yes if it asks.

    4. Now Now in the command prompt window, type slmgr -rearm and press enter.

    5. Restart your system. Try to restart your system twice.

    6. You are done .

    What you have to realize is that if you apply this fix to Remove Windows Not Genuine Watermark, it will rearm the system for another 30 days, up to a maximum of 3 times.

    If you apply the fix after you lose your background (ie your desktop wallpaper background goes black, and you get the notification at the bottom right of the screen), you need to first uninstall the kb971033 update, then apply the fix. It will then be a PERMANENT fix. If you’re running a Remove WAT program, WAT needs to be restored first. Never mind WAT, if you have no idea about that. You can still Remove Windows Not Genuine Watermark using this fix.

    Do you have a legal copy of Windows? If not, I wont help you disable this notification (other than saying "google it"). If you do have a legal copy, I'd suggest contacting Microsoft support and explain the problem. If you paid for Windows and it's not working, they will help you get it working (and are really the only ones who can actually help with activation issues).

    Hello, here is more info about genuine notification with steps you could take to solve your problem if your license was working and then after updates it does not:

    To find out why your system is giving you the notification and solve the issue visit the following site and follow the instructions provided for you after you post your issue:

    Enter your registration key. 

    If you don't have one, buy one.

    If you do have one and it doesn't work, follow the prompted steps for activating via phone.

    I've had to do that several times because I changed my computer's configuration (this makes Windows think you installed it on a different PC). It's a bit of a pain, I guess, but they're nice about it.

    Well, If you dished out the cash and got a bad key than talk to M$ or the person you purchase that computer/copy from.

    If you didn't get it legit... (Insert long and boring rant about copyright and morality issues here) Just buy a legal copy like most of us do. Trying to get around M$ piracy protection is really stupid.

    You can choose restore point to revert back to an earlier state?
    If you have the serial you have to reactivate or phone call microsoft.

    Next time possibly this can help
