Windows Activation - Startup Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ok so I started up my computer yesterday and got some weird Windows activation error
    'Windows Activiation
    An un-authorized change was made to windows. Windows has discovered a change that will result in limited functionality. Use the link below to fine out how to fix windows'
    So I rang HP and they took me through a process of starting up into the BIOS and doing a hard drive and memory scan.  No error messages came up.
    I rebooted and Windows started up fine.  Now today I get the same message!
    I ran the windows diagnostic tool;
    what happened? it was working fine before yesterday! system restore did not fix it.

    Hi,

    Yes I've used Avast since I got the computer a couple of years ago.  How would that suddenly cause problems?


    Have you just updated to v6?
     
    There's an a couple of errors in your report....
    TTS Error: M:20110509172843874-
    and
    Licensing Data-->
    C:\Windows\system32\slmgr.vbs(857, 9) (null): 0xC004D401
    ... which seems to be common to people with Vista SP1 or earlier running Avast v6.
     
    The TTS error is an In-Memory Mod-Auth Tamper - which means that a system file is being modified in memory after being read from the disk - the timestamp is the latest time at which such tampering was found (9th May 2001, 17:28hrs).
     
    The fact that it's an anti-virus that's associated with this problem could mean one of two things...
    1) Your system is infected with a virus that the AV has been unable to see
    or
    2) The anti-virus itself is causing the problem.
     
    Since so far I've seen no incidences where another AV is involved, the chances are that the problem lies with Avast. Avast has had a similar problem in the past, as well (one would have hoped that they'd have learned from that experience!).
     
    Uninstalling Avast seems to cure the problem - I'm currently working with another poster to try and find the exact cause, but these forums aren't the best way to do such things, so I don't hold out too much hope unless Avast issue an update - but reinstalling seems to bring it back again.
     
    I would suggest that you try the Avast forums, and see if they are any help....
    (feel free to point them at this forum to see some of the havoc caused<eg>)
     
    ...or simply uninstall Avast, and install an alternative AV.
     
    Either way, I would recommend updating to Vista SP2 as a matter of course (even if not urgency) before doing anything else.

  • I've updated to Service Pack 2, and changed Anti-Virus programs, and it appears to be working correctly now.  Thank you for your advice, i really appreciate it.

    Are you using Avast Anti-Virus?
    If so, then that is probably the source of your problem - I would recommend uninstalling it, updating Windows to Service Pack 2, and then reinstalling Avast. This may fix the problem.

    Hopefully, you uninstalled Avast sometime soon after 14:46 yesterday (10th)? If so, then it looks fine to me.
    You need also to run the Avast Uninstall Utility, which will remove other bits left behind by the normal uninstall routine.
