Firstly, yes I know there is a computer thread, but i thought this might be something affecting people at large, so I'm making this thread.

Today, Microsoft update downloaded one update... a genuine Office checker.

I thought "sure thing, it's ok."

Now it's telling me that I need a new copy of office, because it's not genuine.

I have the original disc next to me, with the holographic effect and the serial number and all that. We got it a few years ago from Retravision. It would have to be genuine.

Anyone else have this problem? Is this happening to me because someone stole my Product key or something like that for their illegal copy?

Microsoft are crooks and their software is basically unprotected, so yeah, people got your serial now it's no longer genuine.
There is a way to make anything genuine but you should NEVER look it up on the internet, and I won't suggest it either; because that's against the law.

I have a copy of XP that always gets through the genuine check, but I don't use it, because I have a disc that came with my computer =D

Someone got your serial with a keygen. Only way to get another is by doing the same, it's illegal, but you paid for the software...

Or... You could do system restore to a point before you downloaded the update and just ignore the genuine checker

Hey I could do that too, thanks.

Though my main concern is that i'm fairly sure it is genuine...
