Let's call it what it is, a pirated licence.

What else do you expect should have happened? It is an illegal copy, and there have been rumours and articles of Microsoft planning a kill switch in connection with Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) which you need to run before you can download certain updates.

If the copy is not genuine, you cannot even download Windows Defender to clean the PC from spyware.
