Booted up my laptop this morning as normal and got a bit of a scare when the built-in Windows Genuine Advantage software started telling me that it was no longer valid, and that I was a victim of software counterfeiting. After a bit of panicking about whether I could get to my code etc. the tool they made me use was quite friendly and had me back and running after a couple of reboots. Needless to say, I promptly backed up all of my code to the SVN repositories haha! And yes, my Windows 7 is perfectly legitimate 🙂 I figure one of the Windows Updates must have triggered something to reset the data in my activation. Crisis averted, back to work 🙂
