  •  Hello MohanPadamata,

     The Diagnostic Report indicates that Vista is experiencing a Tamper. I know this because the TTS Error line is showing a Time Stamp for when the last Tamper occured. The letter in front of the timestamp tells us what type of Tamper it is (M=Mod-Auth, K=Kernel Mod and T= Trusted Store).  However, the tamper your Windows is experiencing starts with a "P".  I'll be honest, in the 4 years I've been supporting WGA on Vista, I have  seen a P type Tamper very few times and don't even know what the P stands for.

      I can give you steps that may help


    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 (not safe 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.

    b. Repairing Windows using System Restore:
    1) Reboot Vista 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

    c. Reset Vista's Licensing Store:
    1) Open an Internet Browser
    2) Type: %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.
    3) Find the file CMD.exe
    4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select 'Run as Administrator'
    5) Type: net stop slsvc  (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing
    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    8) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    9) Type: net start slsvc
    10) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)
    11) Reboot Twice
    12) You will likely be asked to enter a Product Key. Use th one found on the sticker on the side or bottom of the computer

      In addition, since we have found that many tampers can be caused by a Malware infection, I would also recommend scanning your computer with a Anti-Virus program (perferably multiple scanned with multiple different AV programs).

      If what I have given doesn't resolve the issue, the next step would be to create a (no cost) Service Request at http://support.microsoft.com/gp/contactwga for further assistance. 

     If you do resolve the issue, (if possable) please be sure to post back with what did the trick.

    Thank you,

    You should have ordered and received a disk which should have come with full instructions - each manufacturer has different instructions.
