Getting "Not Genuine Windows 7" Prompt - Diaganostics attached- HELP! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Forum;


    I hope someone can help me.   Consistently getting the error message that my Windows 7 is not genuine.   Started after running a spyware removal program.    Also, at the same time, I started  loosing connection to the Internet (modem) every few minutes and performance has slowed.  I’m in the middle of final interviews for a good job and NEED this computer to work.   I followed the directions on the forum and my diagnostic report and computer details are below.


    So far:

    1) I unsuccessfully followed the directions from  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2008385

     for "There is a lack of permissions in the registry key HKU\S-1-5-20. 

    Result: couldn't get rsop.msc to open anywhere.


    2) Hunting for the recommended "Resultant Set of Policy Wizard" from attempt #1 ,  I went to Microsotf's Management Console. I clicked  on  RCM and RegisterControl    ConsoleRoot/Component Services/Computers/My Computer/DCOM Config/ RCM &  RegisterControl.  I couldn't open the files but the little arrow back to the left of those two files disappeared.  How important?


    3) Successfully ran sfc /scannow 

    Result: No corrupted files.


    4) Sucessfully ran the Microsoft.com/genuine check and the report stated not genuine


    5) Found your forums and here I am –


     So if anyone can help, I would so, so appreciate it.   I'm on a small Island and the computer repair people mean well, but they are not advanced..


    Thank you

  • Download and install ASUS BIOS Update 213 for ASUS UL80VT.  Afterward, visit Genuine Microsoft Software and click on Validate Windows.

  • Carey,

    Thank you for your quick relpy.   So far the issue isn't resolved. 

    My computer is a UL80V not VT so Asus didn't have a download link for the 213 update for my machine.

    Did some research and finally went with the 208 version, as it seemed to be the latest update for the UL80V.

    208 seemed to download ok as a zip file.   I asked that all files be extracted and saved to hard drive.   Found the file UL80AS.208 where it should be, but I can't open the file.

    Tried to do the update through Windows Winflash (good idea?)but flash program says that the "The model of BIOS image doesn't match to BIOS ROM's one - Please exit"

    So I give up for tonight but I would so much appreciate your thoughts on what to do next.  Tomorrow's another day!

  • Hello,

      While updating the bios may resolve the issue, there is alternative fix.

    Computers, which are built by large manufactures that come with Windows Pre-Installed, come with two (2) Product Keys:

    A)    OEM SLP: This key comes pre-installed in Windows, when it comes from the Factory. This key is geared to work with the OEM Bios Flag found only on that Manufacturer's computer hardware. So when Windows was installed using the OEM SLP key (at the factory) Windows looks at the motherboard and sees the proper OEM Bios Flag (for that Manufacturer and that version of Windows) and Self-Activates. (that's why you did not need to Activate your computer after you brought it home)

    B)     COA SLP: This is the Product key that you see on the sticker on the side (or bottom) of your computer. It is a valid product key, but should only be used in limited situations (sush as if the OEM SLP key stops self-activating for whatever reason). The key must be activated by Phone. (Note: All manufacturers that use the OEM SLP system are required by contract to include a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) sticker, that has a COA SLP key, on the computer)

       Your Windows is using an OEM SLP key, but (for whatever reason...possibly due to the current bios installed) cannot see the OEM Bios Flag in the computer’s motherboard and is unable to Self-Activate.

      To fix the issue, you will need to change out the OEM SLP key with the COA SLP key.  The normal way to do this is to click the ‘Start’ button, right-click ‘Computer’, select ‘Properties’ and then click ‘Change Product Key’ (located in the lower right-hand side of the window). Enter the COA SLP key and follow the instructions in the Change Product Key Wizard.

    Alternate steps to change the product key

    1)    Click the Start button
    2)    Type: slui.exe 3 and hit the Enter key
    3)    Type in the Product key from the sticker on your computer
    4)    Click the Next button.
    5)    You will be asked if want to Activate, click ok
    6)    It will attempt to Activate by the internet and will return an Invalid Key error (this is ok, continue to next step.
    7)    Click the Start button
    8)    Type: slui.exe 4 and hit the Enter key
    9)    Select your location in the drop down menu and click the Next button
    10)    The next screen provides the number to call to Activate by Phone

    NOTE: when you call that number, you will first hear an Automated Voice. If the Automated Voice gives you an option to talk to a Live Activation Rep., select that option. If not, do not enter any numbers. This should force the Automated Voice to transfer you to a Live Activation Rep. Trying to Activate thru the Automated Voice will not work, in your case; only thru the Live Activation Rep. will your Activation be successful.


    Thank you,

  • Hi Darin/Carey

    I sent a reply earlier.  Guess it's lost in space.

    Issue unresolved.  Was able to get to "change product key" enterered the key - got the error message- went bact to start and entered slui.exe 4  - did not get the screen with options for activating.  Got a Windows activations screen that said I need to get a new key, re-enter (tried it 5 times) or to contact Asus.  

    Nothing clickable on the screen.  Checked the key with a magnifying glass to make sure I had the right number.

    As your post says I need to get a live activation person (I assume from Windows) could I please ask for what to do next? 

    I really appreciate your help so far.

  • Me Again

    Thanks for giving me the link to the WGA Request

    I just spent an hour submitting the request.  Submitted it and did not get any validation that it was sent.   Tried to sign in to check status and got a prompt that I have to have submitted it under a Windows Live ID.   Groan.   There wasn't any notice aforehand.   Any way around signing up for Windows Live? - I tried it awhile ago and didn't care for it.

  • Hi

    I should be more specific.  When I downloaded Windows Live a few months back to test it, I couldn't use my Outlook email and lost Google for awhile.    Maybe someday I'll have the time to switch everything over to Bing and Hotmail but it sure isn't today.    I can't risk losing my email today - I have important info coming in.  Ideas?



    Friday, November 19, 2010 12:51 PM
  • Hi,

    I figured out a way to get into Windows live.  I'll resubmit the WGA and keep you posted.


    Agina thank you very much
