Message at bottom right shows Windows 7 not valid RRS feed

  • Question

  • After doing a Windows Updates, I received a permanent message at the bottom right corner saying my version of Windows 7 is invald.  When I entered the product key that came with my computer, it wouldn't accept it.

    I restored my system to an earlier backup and the problem went away.  I've been using the same product key since 2009 without any problems.

    I suspect the problem lies in one of the recent October 8, 2013 updates since others seem to be having the same problem.  After I did the restore, I only updated my Office 2007 and the .NET updates.  I didn't install any of the others because obviously one or all of them are the problem.  The updates I didn't install are:

    Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems:
    KB2862335, KB2864058, KB2864202, KB2868038, KB2876284, KB2883150, KB2884256, KB2847311, KB2862330

    Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems:
    KB2846960, KB2852386, KB2882822, KB2888049

    The clear solution to me is to not install any of these updates from October 8.

  • MGA Diagnostic Report is Required:

    To properly analyze and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the diagnostic report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )

    Once downloaded, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, after a short time, the Continue button will change to a Copy button.
    Click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your post.
