windows 7 ent RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently been getting messages from windows telling me my version of windows 7 is not genuine. It is Windows 7 Enterprise that I got from my college. It came with a product key but i was never asked by windows to type it in. Any ideas on how to fix this or where I can go to type in my product key? Thanks!
