Windows 7 No Longer Recognised as Genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I have been using my Windows program for over a year with no trouble. After checking my emails recently, my computer background turned black and a message appeared in the bottom right corner which read 'Windows 7 Build 7600 This copy of Windows is Not Genuine'. I have tried to validate online but the loading icon continued for hours without a result. I tried to use the start menu to find the toll free number for Australia so that I could to validating by phone but a notification appeared saying that an error had occurred and access was denied. Could someone please help me? Thank you

  • this could be a complex one to proprly diagnose and fix.

    First, please run a full CHKDSK and SFC scan.... 
    type in the Search box
    CMD.EXE
    right-click on the only file that is found
    Select Run as Administrator
    - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up
    At the Command prompt, type
    CHKDSK C: /R
    and hit the Enter key.
     
    You will be told that the drive is locked,
    and the CHKDSK will run at he next boot - hit the Y key, and then reboot.

     
    The chkdsk will take a few hours depending on the size
    of the drive, so be patient!

    After the CHKDSK has run, Windows should boot normally
    (possibly after a second auto-reboot) - then run the SFC

    SFC -System File Checker - Instructions
    Click on the Start button
    type in the Search box
    CMD.EXE
    right-click on the only file that is found

    Select Run as Administrator
    - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up
    At the Command prompt, type

    SFC /SCANNOW

    and hit the Enter key
     
    Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.
     Post an MGADiag report with details of any error messages encountered.

  • Hi, I ran all the scans. Here is my MGADiag report after rebooting. I don't really know anything about these reports but the product key listed in the report is completely different to the product key on the sticker on my computer. Thanks again

  • The product keys are supposed to be different.  The product key in your report is a self-activating key installed by the manufacturer at the factory and is the key that is installed when you use the manufacturer's recovery software.  It requires code in your BIOS in order to self-activate.  It is not unique.  All computers from the manufacturer with Windows 7 Home Premium use the same embedded key.  Since it is not unique the Microsoft activation servers will not activate it.  It cannot be used to manually activate Windows.  It is an anti-piracy scheme since it cannot self-activate on a computer that does not have the correct code in the BIOS.  That prevents someone from just using the recovery disks to install Windows on another computer without paying for Windows.

    The product key on your COA label is the key you use for manual activation.  It is unique and the Microsoft activation servers will activate it.  It is the key you use if self-activation fails due to the code in the BIOS becoming unreadable or if you need to reinstall Windows with a standard Windows installation disk.  Think of it as an emergency key.

  • Thanks for the information. My main problem is that Windows is no longer being recognised as genuine. I ran the scans recommended by another answer and they didn't show any errors. I've outlined the other steps taken in my initial post. Any advice would be much appreciated

    Unfortunately wer're still in unknown territory.

    Please open REGEDIT nad navigate to the following 'folder'

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root

    right-click on the folder name in the laft pane, and select Properties

    click on the Permissions tab

    There should be three names in the upper box -

    Everyone, OWNER RIGHTS, and SYSTEM.

    (DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING - SIMPLY RECORD RESULTS and post back with them)

    'Everyone' should have Read permissions

    'OWNER RIGHTS' should have 'Special' permissions

    'SYSTEM' should have Full Control and Read permissions.

    Click on the Advanced button

    All permissions should  have 'Apply to' set to 'This Key and subkeys'

    If there are any more users listed, name them

    Click on the Owner tab

    who is listed as the current Owner?

    click OK out and report your results.

  • Everything is listed as you said it should be regarding Everyone, Owner Rights and System. The permissions were also as listed above. When I clicked the owner tab, the current owner was listed as 'Administrators(jmballing-PC\Administrators)'. In the box below that, two names were listed. They were 'Administrators(jmballing-PC\Administrators)' and 'jmballina (jmballina-PC\jmballina)'

  • That does look normal - drat! - but it does give us a 'quick' fix if what I think has happened is the case.

    I suspect that one of the entries below that has had permissions altered, so we'll try cascading those (correct) permissions down the branch.

    Please try running the fixit from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2230957

    Once it's run, reboot, and run another MGADiag report, and post the results.

  • In that case, I'm afraid that I'm short on ideas (at least for the moment)

    Unless you are prepared for what could be a long job, I suggest that you contact WGA Support direct (if you manage to pick your way through the maze right, I think it's free!). I'm happy to continue here, if you want to - just let me know.

    WGA Support can be found here-North America: http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/cu_sc_genadv_master?ws=support&ws=support#tab4

    Outside North America:
    http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support#tab0

    Please let us know if (and how) MS manage to repair the problem without a repair install of the OS - it would be useful for future reference!
