    I've also seen the rare instance where corrupt registry entries cause Windows to report it's not genuine. The only real solution is to re-image. Activation was then possible.

    We get this sometimes here when a PC is installing monthly updates. Has always gone away again once the updates have all been applied and the PC restarted - so, check to see if you have an update which hasn't installed properly.

    In my case activation is possible- works straight away but the issue doesnt go away if I dont activate it. Can't work out why it would do this - no sign of update issues
