Windows 7 Home Premium suddenly not genuine after 2+ years! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Suddenly having trouble with my Win7 HP that was obtained direct from HP in Dec. 2011. I get the frequent watermark on the desktop saying This build 7601 of Windows is not genuine, which goes away and comes back at random intervals. I've noticed whenever the watermark is not there that it shows Windows is activated in the Control Panel. Not sure what it shows whenever the watermark is present because every time I open Control Panel the watermark instantly disappears. Also, I've started getting a popup box stating that optional updates are not working and I "may be a victim of counterfeit software". Can someone please help? This is all garbage and I want it gone. Here is my log file:

  • Have you recently had an upgrade/engine update for Norton?

    I would suggest running the removal tool for Avast, just in case...

    Download the Avast removal utility from here http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility

    Follow the instructions for running it, and when complete,

     reboot the machine  whether it asks for it or not.

    After the reboot, open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following command

    NETSH WINSOCK RESET

    You'll be advised to reboot - do so.

    See how the machine behaves then

  • Your problems are typical of a race condition - often caused by conflicting Anti-virus programs.

    What AV is currently installed? What other AV's have EVER been installed on this machine?

  • Thanks for the quick reply. Currently I'm running Norton Internet Security. Not for certain, but I believe it's all I've ever used since buying the machine. I might've used Avast for a short period, but Norton is the only thing installed.
