Hello I am running Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1 and am getting this message a lot: http://prntscr.com/2qk93v
When I click resolve online now I get directed to http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate/DownloadValidationSupport.aspx?displaylang=en
I click the first download link, run the Windows activation Technology exe and get this error message. http://prntscr.com/2qjxmn I have tried to install 4-5 times, never worked.

Please help, thanks!

If your Windows 7 came pre-installed on your system try this: There should be a Windows sticker somewhere showing the windows product key. Go to Control panel, system and look at the Windows activation section. Click on the link "change product key". Enter the product key from your sticker and activate.

If you go to your Start Menu, right click on Computer, click on properties, and scroll down to the bottom, you'll see a section called "Windows Activation". If it says "Windows is activated' and you have a Genuine Microsoft icon, you are activated and you should have no problems.
