Can i safely delete this exe file?

Hi, i have genuine windows 7 ultimate x64 (bought from a ‘Microsoft Store”) but ince yesterday i hav warnings coming up that my windows isnt genuine, but it is!? I found the process name (WatUX.exe) and i thought that since i have genuine windows maybe i could delete it and have no more genuine issues. If delete it will it be restored? Should i delete it? The file is called WatUX.exe and i located at ComputerC:WindowsSystem32Wat

  3. Its part of your windows activation files. Dont delete.

    Run a registry scan and repair all errors and reboot.

    If you are running bootleg windows, turn off windows update. Thats where windows detects non-genuine versions,
