    Windows genuineness Icon has disappeared

    After I did a free upgrade from 7 to 10 on visiting Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System I used to see Under Windows activation at the bottom not only that Windows is activated but also an Icon confirming that the Windows was genuine.

    Now for some mysterious reason the genuineness Icon has disappeared. I wonder why this has happened. Would some expert please clarify?

    If it is activated by MS servers then it is genuine.

    Windows 10 doesn't display that ICON. It was likely part of the Windows Genuine Advantage patch done to Windows 7 to weed out pirated systems. It's done differently in Windows 10. Non of my systems have that Icon. I don't think Windows 8 displays it either. I wouldn't let it bother you. If the system page shows you as activated your good.
