Unauthorized change to Windows after downloading and installing updates RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need your help!!! I upgraded to Vista Ultimate last March. After replacing my harddisk in my GATEWAY MX8711 I had to call your product support team to get a new Product ID since the one I had purchased did not work. Now after an automatic update to Ultimate I find that it is telling me my Windows has an unauthorized change and may be counterfeit. I tried the work arounds posted on other sites including resoring to last known operating date prior to download of updates and implementing chkdsk. No success. I have went through the validation process and received the error code 0x80080250. I then ran the diagnostics with the following results (I note my product ID is NOT the same as that provided to me previously):

  • I'm sorry Tesla52, I have no way of knowing the first 10 digits of your Product key. 


    Could you access your email (that has the Product Key) from your other computer?

    Hi tesla52,


      I've talked with my Devs and here is what they say about your issue:



    "This is Trusted Store tamper due to checkpoint mismatch. I am not sure why the system ended up in this state but the information in Trusted Store files is not in sync with the one in registry. So, Trusted Store was recreated, which means that product key and any other information stored in trusted store was erased. The user should see activation screen after a couple of reboots and should be able to activate the machine by entering the product key."


    Would you try what the Dev suggests and tell me if this resolves your issue.


    Thank you,

  • Darin,


    I tried to reboot multiple times. Then I tried to enter my product key but it tells me I have an invalid entry on the fifth character. My product key is the same as in the above diagnostic report except for the last two digits.


    I do need to access important emails pretty soon to reply to them. Please help me expedite the solution to this problem.


    Thanks for your help.

  • Darin,


    I might have found the problem. You're telling me to input my Product Key and all I have is my Product ID. My product key is in my email when I first bought and upgraded my computer (which I can't access). If you can send me the first 10 of my Product Key to my email address I can receive that on an older computer and try putting that in the field. Just a thought that we may be having a mixup between key and id.
