This is not an issue but an observation open for discussion. Ever since installing Win 7 home in December of last year I have my computer boot interrupted at least every month by a dialog box "informing" me that I may not have a genuine copy of Win 7 and requesting my input to verify that I have a genuine copy of WIN 7, in essence re-activating it. It happened again today. So far there hasn't been a refusal to activate but being asked every month to verify my copy of Win 7 is annoying to say the least. It was my impression that once a genuine copy of in 7 is activated it's activated for good unless a number of hardware changes are detected (no changes whatsoever). This is a full retail copy of Win 7 Home Premium obtained at full retail price of $199.99 from my local Office Depot, no bargain bin stuff here. Has anyone else experienced this? How far does MS trust it's paying customers?
