Windows 7 Error 0x8004fe22 Not Genuine When Really Is Genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • We purchased a Dell computer a few months ago and now I keep getting an error message that says "This computer is not running genuine Windows". The error code at the bottom is 0x8004fe22. My computer is a factory default dell unit purchased retail at Costco, so I am pretty sure that it is genuine. I have tried many things but nothing seems to help. I have trid a sfc /scannow and it says that it found errors but was unable to fix them. I even tried this in safe mode with the same result. I have the CBS.log file but did not paste it here as it is VERY long. I have downloaded and tried the WAT Fix.exe and the result was the same as well.

    Here are the results from my MGADiag scan:

    Perhaps someone here can me get be back to genuine without having to restore my whole computer as this is a business machine that hosts files for other users.

  • That's fine - exactly what I was expecting. ;)

    I've uploaded a file - sluicom64.zip - to my OneDrive at  Noel's OneDrive

    Please download and save it to your desktop.

    Right-click on the saved file and select Extract all...

    Save it to the default location

    This should create a file sluicom64.reg

     right-click on the file, and select Merge

    Accept the warnings, - you should then get a 'Success' message.

    Close all windows, and reboot.

    Run another MGADiag report, and post the results.

  • I have tried this fix with no success: I never received the Windows Activation Dialog.

    "Recreate the Licensing Store
    1) Click Start button.
    2) Type: CMD.exe into the 'Search programs and files' field
    3) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select Run as Administrator
    4) Type: net stop sppsvc   (It may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    Note: the Software Protection service may not be running, this is ok.
    5) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform
    6) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    7) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    8) Type: net start sppsvc
    9) Type: slui.exe
    10) After a couple of seconds Windows Activation dialog will appear. You may be asked to re-activate and/or re-enter your product key or Activation may occur automatically.

    Run MGADiag again, and post the report"

    I have also tried a MalwareBytes Scan and a Spybot scan. I have a subscription to Spybot and it scans my system periodically and removes items found. I downloaded the MalwareBytes free program today and it found 0 items.

  • To confirm that the problem is what I think it is, please run the following commands in an Elevated Command Prompt window and post the results.

    REG QUERY HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\TypeLib\{EE574957-4077-4AD6-8658-327C2C86C5AA} /S

    REG QUERY HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\TypeLib\{EE574957-4077-4AD6-8658-327C2C86C5AA} /S              

    REG QUERY HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Classes\TypeLib\{EE574957-4077-4AD6-8658-327C2C86C5AA} /S

      Here are some instructions to make life easier :)

    1) To open an Elevated Command Prompt Window (the ECP window), click on Start, All Programs, Accessories – then right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt. 

    2) To run the commands easier, highlight the block of commands, and right-click on the highlight – select Copy. In the CP Window, click on the black/white icon at top left – select Paste. The commands will run but may not complete the last command, so hit the Enter Key once. 

    3) To copy the results... click on the Black/White icon in the top left, and select Edit... 'Select All', and hit the Enter key - then use Ctrl+V or r-click+Paste to paste it into your response.

  • Noel,

    Thanks again for all your help. I selected "Mark as answer" to your post above. Maybe some other folks can benefit from it in the future.

  • There's a few hundred of those posts up here already :) - the trick comes in using the right search phrase in whatever engine you use.

    Good luck.

  • Well then here is a question perhaps you could answer for us...

    What actually happened and what are the most likely reasons that this happened in the first place. Perhaps I can avoid repeating whatever happened in the first place.

    Monday, June 8, 2015 9:21 PM
  • One of the causes of this is using Advanced System Care, I believe.

    Other registry cleaners may also cause it.

    As far as I know, apart from those, there's no obvious cause.
