False Positive Support RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am absolutely sure that I have a user that is experiencing a false positive WGA notification. Is there customer support to help clean up this problem that was introduced by the WGA application? I have run my the diagnostic that says the software is genuine but keep getting a notification that it is not. It is incredibly frustrating for me to even be spending time on this as I have many other real issues that need my attention. If I can certify that our OS is genuine with some customer support person can I then get an application that will remove the WGA application from our system?

  • Bob, can you please repost your diagnostics report in the validation section. From your previous posts, everything looks fine (100% genuine) but i'm interested in seeing the current state of the machine.

  • The WGA notifcification (a false positive result) occurs when a specific user on one of our computers is taken out of the local computers administrators group. When the user is part of the administrator group we have no problem, however when we remove the user from the administrator group the WGA notification reappears. We would like to be able to remove this user from the administrators group but do not want to keep seeing the WGA notification that the software is not genuine. I am really upset about how much effort this is taking on my part to deal with. We have a number of systems and I am concerned that we will be getting these problems with those systems also. How would you feel if you bought a car and took it to a dealer because there was a recall to fix problems and during the repairs they could not confirm that your car was bought from them so they changed things to annoy you like having the wipers run constantly and the horn to go off intermittedly. How is what you have done with the WGA program different? If a car company did this to you, you would get a new car from a different company wouldn't you. I used to think Microsoft's virtual monopoly of desktop OS was a good thing, I am no longer of that opinion.
