  • Question

  • Hi

    I bought my computer about 2 years ago with Windows 7 home premium 64bit pre-installled. It has suddenly come up with this message.

    I have run the diagnostic report with the following result.

    Please help. Many thanks

  • There is no apparent problem in your report - what symptoms are you seeing?

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.

  • I see.

    I first noticed the message appear in the bottom right hand corner of my desktop about 2 weeks ago.

    I rebooted my PC and it went away so I didn't think much about it. Then a few days later it suddenly appeared again. My PC is fine when it boots up and the message only seems to appear sporadically - after it's been idle for some time for instance. There does not appear to be any detrimental effect to the performance of the computer.

    One thing that did come to mind, and I'm not computer savvy so I'm not sure if this has any relevance but I went into control panel to add an extra language to my keyboard - Greek Polytonic for my studies. I was able to happily type away in Greek. At a later stage I cam across Microsoft language packs. I've not bought these. Do these come with Win7 home premium? Am I supposed to buy these for access to Greek Polytonic?

    I have now turned it back off.

    As I mentioned the message only comes on from time to time. Perhaps I had ran the report when the message had gone?

    If the message appears again I will rerun the report whilst it's on the desktop and post it here.

  • There are two types of Language pack for Windows.

    Home Premium already can cope with a number of languages in terms of Keyboards and display, but to change the full Windows experience to another language you need to install the MUI Language packs - which are only available for Ultimate and Enterprise edition.

    It's likely that what you are seeing is the result of a race condition, where one or more processes are competing with the Software Protection service for resources. If the Software Protection service doesn't 'win' the race in a reasonable time, then it sulks, and shows the non-genuine notification. A reboot will often fix this.

    Main causes of such a race condition are malware or a software conflict usually with an overly-aggressive AV.

    What Anti-Virus are you using? What other AV's have EVER been installed on this machine?

  • Thanks for getting back to me.

    I am using Kaspersky Anti Virus 2011 and this is the only program I have installed. I renew it with a 2 year licence so it is regularly updated.

  • Kaspersky isn't associated with many problems in these forums - and it is one of the better AV's

    You should check what else is running in the background when the notification first comes up - it may give some clues. Unfortunately Event Viewer isn't often of much help here, but it's worth checking anyhow, to see if there's anything to offer a clue.

  • Sorry long time no post but the issue hasn't cropped up  for a while until just now.  The PC was in sleep mode. When I came back to it and wiggled the mouse (told you I'm a novice!!) to waken it. there was the message.

    I managed to locate event viewer but have absolutely no idea what I'm supposed to do with it. Any tips for a complete novice???

    Anyway when the warning message came up I quickly went to run the diagnostic tool ready to post it here when I knew the message was showing. However when I copied the data and went to open up my Firefox browser the "windows not genuine" message had gone!!! What's going on here?? That's in the space of a minute or two.

    If this isn't fixed would there be any damage to the machine or security risks? It's not happening all the time but it would be good to get rid of it once and for all.

    Many thanks

  • Such temporary messages as you seem to be getting are almost impossible to track down (as you've found) as simply looking for them will often clear them, and the very limited repair capability built into the MGADiag tool will often fix them.

    Please open Event Viewer

    In the left pane, navigate to the Windows Logs

    right-click on Applications and select 'Save all events as...' save as Apps.evtx

    repeat for the System logs - save as Sys.evtx

    Compress both files, and upload to your public SkyDrive, and post a link - I'll see if I can find anything helpful there.

    It's unlikely that any damage to the system will occur just from getting these messages, unless they are a symptom of something more widespread such as a malware infestation, or hardware damage.

  • Hi Noel

    Please find link for my two logs as requested

  • I have a suspicion that Kaspersky is involved here - I would recommend uninstalling it temporarily, and running their cleanup tool http://support.kaspersky.com/common/service.aspx?el=1464

    Assuming that Windows is still showing as genuine, install MSE for a while, and see how things go.
