  • Question

  • My problem is quite simular to those listed already. It started 1 day after downloading updates for windows;

    with the difference:

    My computer is completly blocked. Access to my c-drive, to my external drives are denied.

    My Antivirus program is obviously not looged in and ask always to enter user & password.

    As my access to any drive is denied, I cannot use the validation program offered by microsoft.

    The internet connection is still possible, thats all. I cannot even call up Winword anymore.

    It sounds like formating and re-installation, but I try to avoid this, as the whole problem showed up after a Windows Update.

    I am actually a bit upset, that I have a problem caused not by me the user, it is caused from outer circumstances, pre-set circumstances by the program provider. It appears the provider cannot directly contacted to enquire direct help.

    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
    Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
    To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
      - **in your own thread**, please
     
    Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine, but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
     
     
    Having said that – can you boot into Safe Mode?
    If so, try a System Restore back to before it happened/

  • Try a system recovery first.  If you cannot do a System Restore from safe mode as suggested by Noel then ask in the Windows 7 System Repair and Recovery forum at

    This does not sound like a genuine Windows issue.  It sounds like a Windows Update issue requiring a system recovery.

  • Will try the advice, once at home. My fear is, as tried before, that I cannot download or 'run' a tool, as it would need to access the c-drive, which is denied/blocked. What haven't tried is to boot into Safe Mode and try a System Restore.

    I remember that the computer booted strangely and deleted some 'corrupted  files' after the windows update.
