How to know that I have genuine Win 7 in my PC?

Hello friends…
I have got a virus attack on my PC. I scanned my PC and removed the threat. I want to get information about How to know that I have genuine Win 7 in my PC? Because I have heard that PC having genuine copy cannot be affected by virus. IS it true?

Re: How to know that I have genuine Win 7 in my PC?

It depends at the keygen that you have used.
Go to My Computer >> Properties and at the end of the small window it will show if the key is numbers and in the middle OEM. if it is OEM it is original, if not is fake.

For ex:
xxxxx-OEM-0022333-xxxxx

Also make windows update to see if it is original licensed or not.

Just right click on my computer and go to properties. After this, look at the bottom of the page, at activation. You should have a tab there, saying if your windows is genuine or not.

Re: How to know that I have genuine Win 7 in my PC?

Most cracking tools will show the message of the activation, even if it is not a genuine copy. The only way to check is to do Windows Updates, and if the updates don't work then you know you've got a fake copy. If you look at the side of the PC, it should have a licence sticker, if it has got one of them, it's most likely you have got a genuine copy.

Re: How to know that I have genuine Win 7 in my PC?

Well genuine Windows doesn't guarantee a Virus Free environment,though it is a lot safer than owning a pirated copy of Windows.Because the cracked version of Windows obviously has a Virus code in it since it's being reverse engineered to be cracked,so those are more prone to viruses than the Genuine Windows based PCs.

Re: How to know that I have genuine Win 7 in my PC?

One of the most important characteristics, from your perspective, is that ONLY Genuine Windows 7 will allow you to download and run Microsoft Security Essentials, which will prevent the virus problem. Also, see sahabcse's note above on Genuine Advantage Testing.
