  • Hello stefantitian,

      I normally support consumer level products so I don't have much experience with Non-genuine servers.  However, the core of your issue appears to centers on the line in your Diagnostic Report that reads:

    "File Scan Data-->
    File Mismatch: C:\Windows\system32\linkinfo.dll[Hr = 0x80070002]"

    (NOTE: The below steps were developed for Windows Vista and have not been tested on Windows Server 2008.  You may need to adjust the steps to compensate for any differences between Vista and Server 2008)

    This means the file has been Tampered, Modified or has become Corrupt. Windows see this as an attack to bypass it's Licensing security.

    To resolve the issue, you need to either repair file .
    First try repairing Windows using System Restore:
    1) Reboot Windows into Safe Mode
    2) Click the ‘Start’ button
    3) In the Start Search field, type: System Restore and hit “Enter” keyboard key
    4) Select "Choose Different Restore Point", Put a check in the box that says "Show restore points older than 5 days", select the restore point that corresponds to the date Before you first noticed the issue.
    5) Click the "Next" button.
    6) Reboot back into Normal mode

    If that doesn't work, we'll try doing a System Scan. The scan will look for bad Windows files and will attempt to repair them, if possible.

    1) Login to Vista in Normal Mode 
    2) Launch an Internet Browser
    3) Type: %windir%\system32\ in the browser's address field
    4) Scroll down till you find the file cmd.exe
    5) Right-click the file and select 'Run as Administrator'
    6) In the CMD window, type: sfc /scannow
    7) Reboot twice and see if that resolves the issue.

    If neither of these sets of steps resolves the issue, my only other suggestions would be either to contact WGA support at http://support.microsoft.com/gp/contactwga or reinstall Windows.

     Hope that helps,
