I built this PC which works very good.
Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.2
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 8, 64 bit
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 640 Processor, AMD64 Family 16 Model 5 Stepping 3
Processor Count: 4
RAM: 7677 Mb
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon 3000 Graphics (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM v1.1), 512 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 953865 MB, Free - 925742 MB;
Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd., GA-78LMT-S2P
Antivirus: Windows Defender, Disabled

I see the antivirus is disabled. But I`ll Finish This.
I Used Windows 7 on this Pc first. Then dual booted with Windows 8. Then got a SSD and tried Both OSs on SSD. No Problems with Windows 8 yet. But Windows 7 it has been different. I bought Windows 7 and 8 OEMs. I installed Windows 7 first. During activation a message came up about counterfit software. I ended up on the phone with Microsoft for activation. I explained about the counterfit message and she said well lets see. Activation went fine. Then this windows 7 activated fine on different drives in this PC. Then I tried
to install Windows 7 and the counterfit issue came up again. And no option to activate on phone this time.
Windows 7 will not activate update or anything now. I do not know what happened. Something is very wrong. Is there a phone number to Microsoft so I can try to get this straightened out. Like I say This was un opened when it arrived. IT looked like one I got from TigerDirect last week exactly. I just don`t want a Windows 7 that cost $100.00 that will not work. Is there a way to contact Microsoft and maybe get this fixed or am I out $100.00.
