    Please download and run the Genuine Diagnostics tool found at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012

    If you do not have access to the Start Button:

    1)      Login to Vista and click the option that brings up Internet Explorer.

    2)      Type: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 into the browser address bar.

    3)      A window will come up asking if you want to “Run” or “Save”, Select “Run”.

    4)      When the program runs, click the “Continue” button, then click the “Copy” button.

    5)      Paste Report into your newly created forum thread.


      Run the Tool, click "Continue" then click the "Copy" button. Return to your new Thread and Paste the report into the thread along with a detailed description of the issue you are experiencing.

      Please also post the error code you get (if any) when you validate by clicking "Validate Windows" here: www.microsoft.com/genuine. The error code will be gray and in brackets at the end of the message on the page that says validation failed.  (It'll look something like this:  [0xC004C000]).
