    Uninstalling the update does nothing …. restoring to a restore point before this update doesn’t “fix” anything either. I did both of these and I still get the message the my Windows 7 isn’t genuine and still get occasional pop-ups saying the same. The ONLY fix is to NOT install this update.

    I accidentally installed KB971033. To fix it, I reformatted the hard drive using a backup image of my system from Windows Home Server.

    This update was automatically installed on my system 2/28/10…after that my computer would not start. I had to do the Start Repair twice and then finally a System Resore each time I started my computer…today I got smart and disabled auto-update and will do some research before downloading any Windows updates. I’m a PC but Windows 7 was not my idea!

    You guys didnt have to reformat your computer….I was in the same boat then I found a way to preserve my copy of windows 7. I woke up one morning to see my computer telling me I had a non-genuine copy of windows 7. I went to Google to find a fix and this is what I came up with…1) uninstall the update KB971033 (2) look up “New Windows 7 Activator [2010] [blaze69] in Google or in the torrents and follow the instructions from there on. This file actually reactivates your copy of windows as a genuine copy and removes the non genuine annoying sticker. (3) Disable the KB971033 from installing by right clicking on the update in the Add and remove section of control panel for windows update.

      If you don’t have KB971033 in your Add or Remove section, then most probably the update has not been installed on your system.

    @Jason

    Excellent job man.

    If you follow Jason’s lil’ tutorial and you have that KB971033 , then you will be in a relaxed state as you will never see that wh000 message you again, then again only if you are not retarded and install that wh000 again 🙂

    Born in 1999 to Columbia University Professor Dickson Despommier and a class of graduate students, the idea of farmscrapers came forth from a challenge issued to his students to devise a way to feed the Nitro Gas air alert review of Manhattan with 13 acres of rooftop garden space. After less-than-encouraging calculations indicated that only 2% of the city could be fed sustainably with rooftop gardening methods, the concept of farming indoors as well as vertically came to Despommier in one epiphanic moment.
