  • You have to restore the copy of Windows that shipped with the computer or purchase a full license copy at retail.  What the tech did is an old "shop trick" that used to work.  Current Windows Activation Technology detects this shoddy practice.  You can order recovery software from the computer's manufacturer or from a third party like Recovery-Disks.com.  Post the MGADiag report as George requests so we can tell exactly what the tech did.  Always give the make and model of your computer when posting in these forums.
