"An unauthorized change was made to Windows"

    Вопрос

  • Within the past day, our family began getting the pop-up box "An unauthorized change was made to windows" on both this ~ 4yr old laptop and a ~4yr old Dell inspiron, both running under the original Vista that was installed at the factory.  The common event seems to be my daughter's attempt to install an old Freddie Fish game (from the 90s) on both computers.  (Luckily, our other machine running Windows 7 rejected the attempt.)

    Below is the output from the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool (1.9 0027.0).  Note that the (last 15 digits of the) product key reported by the Tool does not match the Product Key on the sticker of this laptop.

    I'm on my desktop now.

    Step 1 of the solution is to uninstall the AV. 

    On my desktop, I am limited to working with the browser only, and I've yet to find a way to get to the Add/Remove programs utility in the Control Panel.  (My laptop had a toolbar at the top, and I was able to get to the control panel by clicking on the Recycle Bin.  A lucky backdoor.)


     
     
    Boot to Safe Mode - almost all AV's can be uninstalled (or installed ) there.

  • I'm back up and running on my laptop.  That was the issue.  (I may not be able to get to uninstall on my desktop.  But I'll start another thread if I can't get the desktop to work.)

    For some additional color, I had installed BitDefender Internet Security 2012 in on 2/12/2012 as our existing anti-virus program was about to expire.  This instance of Vista on this laptop had only been upgraded to SP1.

  • Glad it helped - good luck with the second one.

    Why do you anticipate problems?

    In a browser on my desktop, I tried entering %systemroot%\system32\appwiz.cpl in the address box.  Promisingly, I next see a "File Download - security warning" telling me "Do you want to open or save this file?

           Name: appwiz.cpl

           Type: Control Panel Item, 1.06MB

           From: C:\Windows\system32

    But when I hit "Open", the process apparently gets shut down.

  • Thanks for your help.  I've uninstalled the AV and am in the process of installing SP1 right now, to be followed by SP2.

    I was able to find a way to get to the install before I saw your advice.

    I tried inserting the BitDefender install disc, but following that alone, BitDefender began scanning with no install/uninstall apparent.

    But after I stopped the scan, I entered e: in the browser address bar, and that brought up a Windows Explorer instance.

    With Windows Explorer in hand, I was able to navigate to the bit Defender install auto-run file in the CD/DVD drive, and once I could uninstall, I was past my obstacle.

    Thanks again for your advice :)
