How to verify the authenticity of Windows 7?

Authentication of the Windows 7 operating system installed on a PC is a fairly simple process that can be carried out on the Internet. In addition, you can also verify the integrity and availability of the main Windows files.

Activation

The standard authentication procedure and Windows 7 is to activate it during the initial installation of the software. This check is carried out automatically without additional user actions.

Check OS through Microsoft website

To check the authenticity of the installed Windows 7, you need to go to the main menu by clicking "Start", and select "All Programs". After that, find the line with the name of the browser used and start it. Then you need to go to the authentication page on the official Microsoft website and use the "Run check now" command. In a few seconds you will know if your OS is authentic.

Update

You can also use the Windows 7 authentication update at KB971033. However, the result of such a test may be a "screen of death" and, as a consequence, the impossibility of continuing the work.

Special utility

An alternative method of OS authentication is a specialized utility that can be downloaded for free from the official Microsoft website. You only need to launch the downloaded application, which in a few seconds will give you an answer regarding the authenticity of Windows 7.
