      "Remember Microsoft’s initiative for upgrading pirated copies of Windows 7 and 8.1 to Windows 10 for free? The software giant has been offering quite a few vague clarifications since then, but it has made it clear today; users running non-genuine copies of Windows will have to pay for the upgrade."

      My son did an in-depth cleanup of my system and guess what ? ..... I've now got a little message in the right hand corner of my desktop telling me that my version of Windows 7 Professional - shop bought for over £100 - is not genuine!
