    If ever there is suspicion, and anyone feels an obligation to query it, it is quite simple.
    When you purchase Windows 8 from Microsoft, either as a downloadable copy, or from retail sources,you are issued a product key immediately. In the former, it is visible in the Upgrade Assistant. In addition, you get a confirmation email that contains your receipt, the product key, and a link to allow you to download the setup files later.
    For retail, you would, in the package, also have a legal MS receipt, as well as that from the retailer.
    It would be simple to ask the member under suspicion, if that is your wish, to produce this evidence.
    Alternative is to stay with your suspicion and just ignore the request for help.

    When MS first started checking peoples OS validity, in XP, they were telling many people that they had illegal copies of XP. Maybe a few did, but when the PC in question came right from HP, Compaq or Dell with the OS already installed, the OS was definitely NOT bogus. The license sticker was right on the back of the PC!
    I had people call me in a total panic about the warnings issued by MS. It was not a happy day.

    So sometimes, even MS doesn't know or can't tell when an OS is legal, so how dare we make that determination here, not even seeing the PC.

    I'm more in favor of giving every OP the benefit of the doubt, rather than just jumping to the conclusion that they are doing something wrong.

    If I have a response that may be considered improper on an open forum, I'll PM it to the person rather than post it publicly. I suggest that others do the same, or post nothing at all. Eh?

    Cheers Mates!

    As I said in an earlier thread. Not infallible, but it is often quite easy to spot that someone is having problems with a pirated copy. A polite question often results in the op vanishing.
    I don't think it is the purpose of forums to get too deep into this, and, as in my last sentence of my previous post, if it bothers helpers, just drop out of the thread
