ERROR CODE 0x80070426 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been running Windows Vista Home Premium for some years.  The computer is a Mesh Elite Power Quadcore PC.  Yesterday I set up another user account on this machine so my wife could use it as we were getting rid of her old XP based machine.  Today I completed  the transfer between her old machines and mine using Windows files and settings transfer wizard between the two PC's.  However when I logged on to her account the wall paper had turned black with a message in the corner that I was not using  a genuine copy of Windows Vista.  This is obviously incorrect as it is genuine. The error I got was ERROR CODE 0x80070426.   No matter what I tried it still could not validate the program as genuine even though it is.  I tried the nightmarish microsoft helplines that prompted me to enter a six figure code that I did not have and then cut me off when I spoke finally to a human being!  I have run MAlwarebytes and that came up negative so I downloaded and ran the diagnostic tool and this is the report

  • Hi Jon,

     You will notice that under the "File Scan Data-->" line there are a large number of files that are listed as Mismatched. All those files listed, are Critical Vista System files. Normally, when there is one or two Mismatched files, it means that those files have been tampered or corrupted in some way. But in your case the Diagnostic Report is reporting that ALL your Critical Vista System files are Tampered or Corrupted. This is highly unlikely. Whats more likely is that your System Catalog has been tampered or corrupted. The System Catalog stores all the Signatures Hash (think fingerprint) for all the Critical Vista System (and other) files. One of the things that Vista uses the System Catalog for is to identify if a file has been tampered or corupted because if the file had been modified in any way, it's signature hash would not match what is listed in the System Catalog and in that case Vista would flag itself as Non-Genuine.

      I highly recommend that you first try to Repair Windows using System Restore:

    1. Reboot Vista into Safe Mode
    2. Click the Start button
    3. Type: Backup and Restore
    4. Double-click the listing for the "Backup and Restore Center"
    5. On the left hand side of the window, click "Repair Windows using system restore"
    6. Put a check in the box that says "Show restore points older than 5 days",
    7. Select "Choose Different Restore Point", select the restore point that corresponds to a date Before you first experianced an issue.
    8. Click the "Next" button.
    9. Reboot back into Normal mode
    10. Run the Diagnostic Tool again and paste the results into NotePad or Word doc and scroll down to the "File Scan Data-->" line.
    11a.     If there are any Mismatched files listed, they you will need to restore to a point further in the past.
    11b.     If there are No Mismatched files listed, then your Vista will report as Genuine.

    If that doesn't work, we'll try doing a System Scan. The scan will look for bad Vista files and will attempt to repair them, if possible.

    1) Login to Vista in Normal Mode (not safe mode)
    2) Launch an Internet Browser
    3) Type: %windir%\system32\ in the browser's address field
    4) Scroll down till you find the file cmd.exe
    5) Right-click the file and select Run as Administrator
    6) In the CMD window, type: sfc /scannow
    7) Reboot twice and see if that resolves the issue.

    If neither of these sets of steps resolves the issue, my only other suggestions would be either to contact Vista support at http://support.microsoft.com or you may need to reinstall Vista.

    Thank you,
    Darin MS
