invalid message

Hello, I just found out that my windows 7 ultimate is not valid. I will get a new copy. What will happen to this one in the mean time? Will it stop working?
Thanks, John

Where did you get the license key from?

My son's friend installed it about a year ago. He has since been in jail and now I hear he has left the state. He is not an option. I understand that I got burned. Please understand, I am not asking how to run an invalid version. I plan on a new version when I can afford it. I just want to know what will happen to this copy over time. Will it just stop working?
Thanks, John
