Preliminary information

Prima di enter the live tutorial, walking to spiegare how to remove "unauthentic copy of Windows" from your desktop, there is some preliminary information that it is my duty to provide you.

First, it is essential to point out that a copy of Windows defines itself original when the license was regularly purchased by the user (or, in the case of companies, by the company) or, as regards the pre-assembled PCs, by the relative manufacturer to make it available to the end user.



That said, however check the authenticity of a copy of Windows and remedy if this is not found activated, there are various systems: I also told you about it in my guides on how to know if Windows 10 is activated, how to activate Windows 8 and how to activate Windows 7.

If the existing Windows license is genuine and regularly activated, the appearance on the screen of the message that the copy of the operating system is not authentic can be traced back to some system error and this is easily solved by practicing the procedures described in this article.

If the checks carried out show that the copy of Windows in use is actually non-original, you must purchase a genuine license for Windows. To do this, you can go directly to the Microsoft website, where the licenses have prices starting from 145 euros, or you can go to third-party sites, which allow you to save considerably on this sum.

Among the sites that allow greater savings, I point out Mr Key Shop which is managed by a company with offices in the city and England and operates by buying and reselling the unused licenses of companies and companies that have switched to the cloud or subscription services at extremely low prices. It is therefore a question of 100% original licenses and resold in full compliance with the relevant European regulations.



But there is not only the saving that leads me to recommend Mr Key Shop: by purchasing licenses from this site, you can in fact receive your key directly via email in a few minutes (also excellent for the environment!), you can pay with many secure payment methods (eg PayPal, card or Amazon Pay), you can take advantage of the garanzia soddisfatti or rimborsati and you can count on a free assistance service in cittàn.

All you have to do to proceed with the purchase of a license is to connect to the Mr Key Shop page dedicated to Windows 10, Windows 8 o Windows 7, choose theedition of the operating system of your choice and add it to the cartby pressing the appropriate button. I suggest you also take a look at the licenses for the Office package (in particular those for Office 2019, the most recent package from Microsoft) and those for the antivirus, also sold at very affordable prices.

When you have completed your purchases, log in to cart and choose whether to complete the transaction such as guest or registering a account. Easier done than said!
