"An unauthorized change has been made to Windows" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
       After the "Welcome" appears when I type my password to enter Vista, the screen goes to the unauthorized change message.  I am then unable to access anything except the "learn more online" option.  The instructions when I go online assume that I have access to the start button and to my desktop, but I do not.  Any tips for resolving this?
      Thanks very much,
    Pete Hagan

  • Hello Pete,

      

    The core of your issue centers on the line in your Diagnostic Report that reads:

    File Scan Data-->
    File Mismatch: C:\Windows\system32\gdi32.dll[6.0.6000.16766]
      

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

    To resolve the issue, you need to either repair or replace the file with a known-good one (of the proper file version)

     

    First try repairing Windows using System Restore:

    1)    Reboot Vista into Safe Mode

    2)    Go to Control Panel

    3)    On the left hand side of the Control Panel window, Click on "Classic View"

    4)    Double-click "Backup and Restore Center"

    5)    On the left hand side of the window, click "Repair Windows using system restore"

    6)    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.

    7)    Click the "Next" button.

    8)    Reboot back into Normal mode

    9)    Vista should no longer be in Reduced Functionality mode


    Note:  Vista usually makes a restore point at every software install and update, so there should be a bunch of Restore Points to choose from.   If there are no Restore Points available (and you hadn't , in the past, disabled Vista from making Restore Points) then that is a strong indication of a Malware infection. Malware will attempt to make it harder for the user to remove it.  Deleting all of Vista's Restore Points is one way that some malware go about doing that.

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

    1)    Login to Vista in Normal Mode (not safe mode)

    2)    Launch an Internet Browser (i.e. click the "learn more online" option)

    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 Vista support at http://support.microsoft.com or reinstall Vista.

    Thank you,
    Darin MS
