Gateway: Invalid Activation Key and not Genuine copy on Vista Home



I have had my computer back from Gateway for about a month. I'm online and a
window pops up. Microsoft tells me my new(ish) Gateway computer has an
invalid activation key and shutsdown. I re-enter the activation key Microsoft
congradulates me on a successful activation and there is message in the lower
right of my desktop screen that says:

Windows Vista (TM)
Build 6001
This copy of Windows is not genuine

So did Gateway screw me? Or is there a bug that needs to be fixed? I have
found a reference to an Activation Exploit (SL07-001) and how to fix it. What
I don't know is if it's the right fix to this problem.
