Default Genuine Windows Problem

Hi all,
Don't know if this is the right place to ask for help with this but I am not able to resolve a not genuine windows problem.
I click on their link to resolve the issue but non of my browsers will take it - uncluding the lastest IE.
I am still able to get Windows Updates.

Help if you can please.

I bought my pc as brand new over five years ago.
Or is this a ploy by Microsoft to try to get me to upgrade to Win10 - something I will never do with my current pc running Win7.

Try this:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2008385

And no, it's not a "ploy to get you to upgrade to Windows 10".

Side note: Win10 is fine . Been running it since the betas.

Take screenshots with the Snipping Tool and upload them to Imgur.com and post the link to the image(s).
