I also I have Windows 7 Not Valid Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought my computer one year ago and Windows 7 worked fine until a couple of weeks ago, I get the following error message.

     

    I called Microsoft here in Israel and they told me it was on OEM copy and to call them. I called Acer and they told me they do not warranty the OS. My copy is genuine and was verified as such by MS in Israel. Here is my diagnostic report:

    It's exactly the same as Windows Explorer - but DON'T be tempted to play with it!

    HKLM is an abbreviation for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, so the path you're looking for is

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\sppsvc

    OK – thanks, I got it.
    Unfortunately there’s no problem with it that I can see, so I think I’m going to have to admit defeat on this one
    Unless Darin has any other suggestions, it’s time to consider either a reinstall or going to MS WGA Support.

    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!

  • You would need a retail dvd.  The restore dvd is not a Windows installation disk.  It can only restore the system to factory condition.  That would wipe out files, settings, and programs.  You can use Windows Easy Transfer to save your files and settings to external media (an external hard drive is easiest) but you will have to reinstall your programs and update the system via Windows Update. 

    If you can find a Windows 7 Home Premium retail dvd I think you can use the COA product key printed on the label affixed to your computer and perform an upgrade in place (aka repair install).  The product key in your report cannot be entered manually.  It is only entered by Windows Installer at the time the system is restored from the recovery dvd.  An upgrade in place would not require you to reinstall your programs but you need to back up your hard drive just in case something goes wrong.

  • Click the Start Orb & type in cmd.exe into the search menu.

    Right click it and Run as administrator.

    Type the following command: sfc /scannow & hit enter.

    Wait for the process to finish, once it's done. Reboot the system.

    Then try & Validate Online

  • something has switched off your Software Protection Service....

    Click on Start
    in the Search box, type
    SERVICES.MSC
    and hit the Enter key - accept the UAC prompt if you get one.
    Look in the console for the Software Protection service, right-click on it and select Properties.
    make sure that the Startup Type is set to Automatic (Delayed Start), and click Apply.

    Try starting the service now - do you get an error message? Does it start? does it almost immediately stop again?
    Post back with your results, and a new MGADiag report.

    If it doesn't start, then please do the following...
    Please open an Elevated (Administrator) Command Prompt window and use the following commands....

    net start sppsvc
    sc qc sppsvc
    sc queryex sppsvc
    sc qprivs sppsvc
    sc qsidtype sppsvc
    sc sdshow sppsvc

    copy and paste the results into your response, together with the EXACT error message you get when you attempt to start the service from the Services control panel..

    The System Error 2 is an odd one - it means that either the File (sppsvc.exe) doesn't exist, or that the references to it from elsewhere (usually in the registry) are broken in some way. Hopefully the output from the CMD commands will show the problem in more detail..

    You can eaily copy the text only - click on hte black/white icon at top leftof the CMD window, and select Edit/Selecyt All and then hit the Enter key - this puts the entire existing output onto the clipboard, which you can then paste you your response.

  • OK  - all the output there is as expected (given the System Error 2 status),  which unfortunately leaves us with not a lot to go on :(

     

    Please check the Properties of the file C:\windows\system32\sppsvc.exe - Fle size (in Bytes), Version number, Modification date will do. Is it tagged as read-only? (it shouldn't be)

    What permissions does it have?

    Should be

    SYSTEM

    Administrators

    Users

    TrustedInstaller

    All except Trusrted Installer should be Read&Execute and Read - TI should be Full Control.

    The exit code implies that the service is set to manual start – or disabled.... OK , Manual start is normal, but it is usually start by the Software Protection service...
    What happens if you try and start the sppuinotify service manually?

    Sorry –.
    Click on Start
    in the Search box type
    SERVICES.MSC
    and hit the Enter key
    In the services control panel, look for the SPP Notification service
    right-click on it, and select Properties.
    in the General tab, there should be a button to Start the service.
    does it start OK? – what is the EXACT error message, if not?

  • OK let's dig into the registry a bit deeper then....

     

    Please open regedit and navigate to the HKLM\system\current control set\services\sppsvc Key
    Highlight it, right-click on it and select Export
    call the file ‘pabx sppsvc.txt’ and save it – then email it to me at
    ngsATcrashfixpcDOTcoDOTuk
    (make the obvious changes)

     

    I’ll take a look at that and see what I can see

  • Thank you for all your help. One last question, is it possible to reinstall the OS without losing all my software and other settings?

  • You would need a retail dvd.  The restore dvd is not a Windows installation disk.  It can only restore the system to factory condition.  That would wipe out files, settings, and programs.  You can use Windows Easy Transfer to save your files and settings to external media (an external hard drive is easiest) but you will have to reinstall your programs and update the system via Windows Update. 

    If you can find a Windows 7 Home Premium retail dvd I think you can use the COA product key printed on the label affixed to your computer and perform an upgrade in place (aka repair install).  The product key in your report cannot be entered manually.  It is only entered by Windows Installer at the time the system is restored from the recovery dvd.  An upgrade in place would not require you to reinstall your programs but you need to back up your hard drive just in case something goes wrong.
