You paid the money for the licensed version, but the update did not count. Based on this, you can report to the store and ask for compensation.

In extreme cases, you can try to compare the versions of the OS installed on your and shop computers. If they coincide, then this is an occasion to reflect on for everyone. However, if the negotiations fail, you can safely proceed with the self-tuning of the PC.

Also with older versions of the OS: it is not known how useful these or other updates will be.
After all the procedures performed, you have toreactivate your copy of the operating system. On the Internet you can download universal activators, which are suitable for 80% of the assemblies that exist at the moment. For example, use the Remove WAT program. In fact, it does not matter which type of activator to use - automatic or normal, re-activation is a necessary part of getting rid of a Windows 7 message: "Your copy is not genuine".
