  • Hello sidewhite,

      The issue may or may not be Malware related.  However, the error message sounded similare enought to a XP Validation (Non-Genuine) issue, I had your thread moved to this Forums.  To help us figure out what the problem is, download and run the Genuine Diagnostics tool (MGADiag.exe) at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012. Click "Continue", click the "Copy" button then “Paste” the report into a reply message in this thread.

    Thank you,
