Product key RRS feed

  • Question

  • Below is a copy of someone elses question and answer.  I have had the same problem about being told "I could be a victim of software counterfeiting".  I have had my computer for several years. Also a message says that "the product key is invalid."  - I hope this is ok as I did not understand how to create a post in forum, paste result of the WGA Diagnostic Data in the original post!!!


    Yesteday when I went to get off the computer, I restarted it. Then when it comes back up, a little thing is telling me I may be a victim of software counterfeiting. And when I click that, it tells me my product key is invalid. The thing is, Ive had this computer for over 4 years and have never had a problem like this. Can anyone help? Here is my Diagnostic Report.

  • Teana,

    The issue seems to lie with the "unknown" signature that is coming up more commonly now. The "unknown" signature denotes a problem with detecting digital signatures.

    Can you try these steps? You can also refer to this article for further information: http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?kbid=813442


    Click Start, and then click Run.


    In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.


    At the command prompt, type "regsvr32 softpub.dll", and then press ENTER.


    Click OK when you receive the message that DllRegisterServer in Softpub.dll succeeded.


    Repeat steps 1 through 4 for the following files: Wintrust.dll, Initpki.dll, Dssenh.dll, Rsaenh.dll, Gpkcsp.dll, Sccbase.dll, Slbcsp.dll, Mssip32.dll, and Cryptdlg.dll. Remember to put regsvr32 in front of al the dll's in mention. ("regsvr32 wintrust.dll")


    Type exit, and then press ENTER to quit Command Prompt.
