Genuine Windows Message

I bought my computer new at Walmart over 5 years ago. It is a Compaq Presario Windows 7. No problems but recently I have gotten this message from Microsoft that my windows are not genuine. Does this mean my windows is pirated or is something else going on? I can still use most of my computer once it allows me to after about a 5 to 10 minute "freeze"....

Anyone else ran into this?

Yes. They're trying to get you to upgrade. That's basically it.

Go turn off Windows Update, and check to see what's in your startup scripts that is running. Something is overloading your computer, and my guess is Windows Update is taking up a lot of resources checking for updates.

Can you turn off update in 7? In 10, no. Can fool it by saying your internet is "metered." Got tired of my computer lagging when I was trying to get something done, this worked.

Overall, I much prefer 10 to 7, I purchased when the upgrade was free. Reasons I shouldn't like it more? Seems faster. Less cluttered. More CPU and memory.

I do turn off as much as possible any "assist" software like Cortana. Also use the free AVG anti-virus with Defender as back-up (scans occasionally).
