Windows 7 Build 7601: This copy Windows is not genuine

    Question

  • Had laptop since September (-ish) 2011, Win 7 home Premium 32-bit pre- installed. No problem until tonight at circa 8 pm

    I did run Windows Update at abiut 6pm (?) seemed to go fine.

    Also laptop has Ati 2450 integ. graphics and higher powered Ati 5470. There's an ATi utility to switch between the two, which I used a lot tonight. Could this have convinced windows that this is 2 different machines and therefore illegitimate?

    Am still learning Win7 (and never posted here...hope it goes to right place) diagnostic output attached:

  • I suspect that I know what's hppening.

    There are some gaming 'tweaks' that involve switching off 'unnecessary' services. - one of the ones that these tweaks like to switch off is the Software Protection Service. (SPPSVC) This is totally unnecessary, as the service uses almost no resources except at boot time, and once every few days (random intervals of up to 90 days). Your report is showing the service as 'tampered'

    If you're using such a tool, or BioShock contains such an option, then please disable it and retest.

    One such tool is Game Booster 3 - which caused similar problems for another poster in these forums.

    There doesn’t appear to be any problem with your report – was the notification showing when you ran the report?
     
    Simply swapping Video cards doesn’t normally cause a non-genuine notification, unless other things have also been changed.
     
    You should download and install the WAT update (KB971033)  - it may help identify what the problem is, if you run  MGADiag with it installed (assuming that there is any problem!)
     
    However, you should be aware that your installation of Office XP is almost certainly a counterfeit one – it’s a Volume License Only version, and if you didn’t get it through your employer or college, it’s a racing certainty to be based on a stolen license, despite what MGADiag says about it.

  • Hi Noel(?) Thanks for the reply. No, the error message was not physically showing as I typed, it isn't permanent. Will get a diagnostic (it took me a while to figure what to do last night) when it shows again. The Office XP is in fact Genuine, from my employing college. I'm now semi-retd. and work with a (declining) number of re-sit/re-take home students. The campus folks are ribbon-office but my 'external' students are (largely) not. I took the trial Office 2010 Starter off the laptop (too much learning curve) and didn't bother to agitate the IT people for it either. I know...one day....but for now the stone-axe will do. Take your point re 'racing cert.' but I try to do things the straight way...( ok, some 'copied' ZX80 stuff in 19......oh dear) Will check Win updates etc as advised and get back, prob Monday. Again, my thanks :)

    Hey – I can remember the Z80 and Beeb Micro too :)
     
    If the notification comes and goes, it is usually the result of a race condition, where two processes compete for resources – if one of those is the WGA services, then it may throw up the notification in the belief that the system is under attack. Usually this will disappear at the next boot, but may recur.
    Often the cause is an anti-virus program – which one are you using?

  • Hi Noel,

    Apologies for delay, Monday was one of those days!

    Have applied KB971033 as you suggested. Problem has not appeared since I posted (magic eh?) Your process-race point feels right and I'll try to replicate the conditions later this week. Antivirus duties currently MS Security Essentials with various back-up manual scanners eg Malwarebytes.

    Ahh the Beeb and its BASIC .......and even better, a built-in 6502 Assembler. I wrote a bubble-sort and assembled into the (by then redundant) cassete buffer in 19......zzzzzz. Did student-grade admin. faster than anything else in the college.

    First one I actually owned was a Dragon 64 with twin floppies - although I'd played with other peoples' ZX80/Beeb/C64/Ataris. Learned a little programming as school in the early 70's, and more at work in the late 70's on VMS teletype/tape terminals. Finally got a 'proper' PC when Win95 came out... the rest, as they say, is history :)

  • Hi Noel,

    Lack of reply because nothing to report, the last night....message was back! I missed running the diag. 'cos its was late (for a pint) and I was having a 'Eureka!" moment.

    The trigger for the message is Bioshock ( the original version, retail disc and official patch downloaded from manuf. site)

    Plays fine but on quittiing to Windows the message is there. Easy to spot if you are looking for it, easy to miss if not (haven't played for weeks). Happened last night, playing with Security Essentials real-time monitoring 'off'.

    Wonder if it's the game (or the execrable Securom-thank you Sony!- which the game apparently uses) versus the increasingly 'paranoid' MGA software ?

    Chap in pub laughed, saying 'Pirates don't have this problem because the copy protection is removed. Only the 'honest' mug punters suffer'.....hmmm. :(

    Will go for a diag. readout next time. Or should I give up playing for fear of 'illegitimising' myself (ooerr!)

    Regards

    JB

  • Interesting!

    I wonder what it does? There have been no singificant changes to the WGA system since the release of the WAT Update two or so  years ago - so I don't see what would have caused this now, unless this is a new program to you.

    Are you running it in any of the Compatibility modes?

  • Hi Noel,

    Presuption premature, it did take a while to generate a reproduceable fail: (quick is easy @ Darin: no reply-presume etc..no offence intended but the tricky issues are erem...tricky).

    Anyway it IS Bioshock (but maybe other...Sony 'protected' software too) but is time -ish dependent. Caught and posted below.

    If I do (yes, with wine post a long day-week) a 2+ hour session ( with breaks but pausing game as opposed to re-start): MS-Sec.- Ess.-off, wireless-off, modem-off then the warning re 'not genuine' manifests.

    Shorter sessions...no problem. I will, eventually...try long-play with MSSE and/or internet-on...no not tonight....

    It is as though there is a background (dis-)service (genuinely!!) trying to do ..'something' and failing and so flagging..'not genuine'.

    DRM is becoming a burden..(buy Windows....and have it dis-own you....your problem) but only for genuine users. I guess that one aim is to terminate PC game playing: consoles are so much easier to monetise.

    I can remember when it was all enthusiasts (er....fields round here ?)......

    Regards

  • I suspect that I know what's hppening.

    There are some gaming 'tweaks' that involve switching off 'unnecessary' services. - one of the ones that these tweaks like to switch off is the Software Protection Service. (SPPSVC) This is totally unnecessary, as the service uses almost no resources except at boot time, and once every few days (random intervals of up to 90 days). Your report is showing the service as 'tampered'

    If you're using such a tool, or BioShock contains such an option, then please disable it and retest.

    One such tool is Game Booster 3 - which caused similar problems for another poster in these forums.

  • Hi Noel,

    I don't use an'optimiser': did dally with an AMD Fusion utility but it made no sig.diff. so isn't used anymore. Can't find a similar option in Bioshock either.

    Just had the usual message and checked local services; SPPSVC is set to manual and shows as 'started'  (listed as Network service) (should it be set to Auto?), SPPNSvc (if it be relevant) is 'Manual' but not started.

    Re: Your report is showing the service as 'tampered'....which bit of the diag. rept. is that ?

    Will go check the my early 'Fusion' play hasn't left a lingering legacy in my reg.

    I'm still suspicious of SecuRom......call me paranoid..(you're probably thinking it anyway....everybody is...even my toaster is against me.....) :)

    Regards

    SPPSVC must be set to Automatic (Delayed start) - or you will have problems.

  • Hi (again) Noel,

    I think that you were spot-on!

    On searching I found an 'orphan' AMD-Fusion Service, it relates to a gaming profile I created when experimenting with the prog. (6months ago?). The profile seemed broken but partly functional. Reinstalled AMD Fusion, turned everything poss. to machine/windows default (the orphan wouldn't poperly respond): uninstalled the whole thing with Revo Uninstaller and checked for left-overs....everything (this time) appears to be gone.

    Egad Holmes.......

    Looks good...will post back after next long session of Bioshock........another pint I owe you!  :)

    Regards
