  • Question

  • Hi Darin, 

    I'm encountering a similar problem like many did in this forum. After reading & trying out the solutions you've posted here, I am still unable to resolve it. Here's the report generated after running MGA Diagnosis, can you help?

    The core to your particular issue centers on the line in your Diagnostic Report, that reads:

     

    File Scan Data-->
    File Mismatch: C:\Windows\system32\gdi32.dll[6.0.6001.18023]
    File Mismatch: C:\Windows\system32\linkinfo.dll[6.0.6000.16386]



    This line means that the critical system files have either

    a)     Been tampered/modified/become corrupt to the point that its Signature Hash no longer matches the Signature Hash listed in Vista's System Catalog.

    Or

    b)     Been updated but the file's Signature Hash was not updated, in Vista's System Catalog to reflect the updated file's new Signature Hash.

     

      Vista compares a Critical System file's Signature Hash with the Signature Hash listed in its System Catalog to determine if that Critical System file has been tampered with. When this happens, depending on the file that has been tampered, Vista may show as Genuine or Non-Genuine, but either way, Vista won't Validate correctly and may also exhibit other strange behavior.

      I can't find any regular updates that contain both files, so it possible cause b) is unlikely, but it could have been caused by a bad Service pack 1 install (that is just speculation).

      To resolve your issue, we need to replace or repair the file so it's Signature Hash matches what is listed in Vista System Catalog. I can provide a couple of suggestions to do this:

     

    A)    Uninstall/Reinstall Service Pack 1 for Vista If possible uninstall Service Pack 1 then re-install it (found at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=b0c7136d-5ebb-413b-89c9-cb3d06d12674&DisplayLang=en). The Files may be included in the SP1 install and if so, SP1 will overwrite the bad files with a Known-Good copy.  

    (Note:  Be aware that I have not received confirmation that these files are, in fact, included in SP1. So if this option does not resolve the issue, please try the next set of steps.

     

    B)    Repair Windows using System Restore:

    1) Reboot Vista into Safe Mode

    2) Go to Control Panel

    3) On the left hand side of the Control Panel window, Click on "Classic View"

    4) Double-click "Backup and Restore Center"

    5) On the left hand side of the window, click "Repair Windows using system restore"

    6) Select "Choose Different Restore Point", Put a check in the box that says "Show restore points older than 5 days", select the restore point that corresponds to the date Before you first noticed the issue.

    7) Click the "Next" button.

    8) Reboot back into Normal mode

    9) Vista should no longer be in Reduced Functionality mode

     

       If neither of these solutions resolves your issue, the last resort, that I can provide, is to reinstall Vista. But before you do that, create a (no cost) support request at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52029 and see if they can provide any alternatives.
