BOUGHT RESTORE CD FROM EBAY BUT NOW FOUND LAPTOP PRODUCT KEY
by jenianis21 - 11/27/12 9:26 AM
My laptop had a virus and because there was no installation disc included with it and I had no idea where to find product key code, I cleared the hard drive completely and started afresh by buying a restore CD off ebay. However, after re-installing I noticed a message in the screens corner of "this version of windows is not genuine" I got very worried and was advised to check under the base of my laptop to find product key which I indeed found. This key code has now been entered and authenticated/validated and the message no longer appears. However when I try to install "windows updates" it keeps freezing and wont go past "update 1"
I dont know what to do or whether this disc is/will still cause problems for my laptop in future or how to remove it from my laptop.
I would be most grateful for any advice, as I dont want to be doing anything wrong or causing problems for my laptop.
