Windows Vista (TM) build 6002 Not Genuine

    Question

  • I purchased my laptop in August 2011, within the last year I have been getting this error message and saying I must validate my windows. I typed in the code on the bottom of the laptop but it says the code is invalid. I bought the computer from PC world in the UK and everything is legitimate. Here is my Diagnostic report:

  • No problem - I'm not planning on going anywhere :)

    The CheckSUR results are clear - so we just have to worry about the SFC error, an the other CBS log problems....

    I am 99.9% certain that we can ignore the settings.ini error from the SFC report - it's likely to come back almost immediately anyhow. The problem is that 0.1%  - which is that the problem could be malware-related.

    Before I go about doing all sorts of 'wonderful' things, lets see if something fairly simple is the problem....

    Open Windows Explorer (Computer)

    Navigate to the C:\Windows folder

    Find the System32 sub-folder and right-click on it

    select Properties

     

    Clear the 'blob' from the 'Read-only (Only applies to files in folder)' box by clicking on it until it's plain white.

    Click on Apply.

     

    Make sure that the radio button for 'Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files' is set, and click OK.

     

    Accept the Administrator prompt. After a couple of seconds, you'll be told there is an error - click on the 'Ignore all' button.

     

    Wait for it to finish - it could take a couple of minutes.

     

    OK out, and exit Windows Explorer.

     

    Reboot twice

  • BIOS valid for OA 2.0: no, invalid SLIC table

     

    The problem appears to be in the Licensing Store - please try the following.....

     

    Recreate the Licensing Store with the correct data.

     

    1) Open an Internet Browser window.

    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) Restart your computer twice. 

     

    You may be asked to enter your COA Key and/or Activate. – if asked for the Key, use the one on your COA sticker on the machine’s case (you may need to activate by telephone).  

     

    Once complete, run another MGADiag report and post back with the results.

  • Thanks for the reply, I tried it but I had an issue. I'm not very good with these sort of things. Here is what the cmd said

    http://i47.tinypic.com/oaua9k.jpg

    What shall I do? Thanks very much again for the reply.


    After I did this a message popped up saying I did something unauthorised and that I need to reinstall the windows vista disc. I don't know if I have the disc anymore

  • The screenshot you posted shows an error that usually occurs if someone has already tried that fix sometime in the past.

    try it again, this time using the following command #7, instead of the one ablove

    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar3

    (hopefully this should work - if not, change the 'bar3' to a different number, and try again.

  • Thanks again for your reply Noel, I tried this but it states "The system cannot find the file specified."

    Sorry if I'm doing something wrong, it's just so annoying considering I paid to get vista in the first place and I don't want to pay more for someone to fix it.

  • Not a problem :)

    That error indicated that there is a problem with one of the services involved -

       Please run the following command from an Elevated Command Prompt window(1)

     

    Copy and paste set of commands below into the window – once completed, hit the Enter Key to ensure that the last command has run (2)

     

    REG QUERY HKU

    REG QUERY HKU\S-1-5-20

    REG QUERY HKU\S-1-5-20\Environment

    REG QUERY "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\S-1-5-20"

    REG QUERY "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList"

      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.     

     

    Copy the whole output to your response(3)

  • Since I turmed it on today, red box pop up keeps coming up saying I must reinstall windows :/
    Sunday, March 24, 2013 8:38 PM
  • It's not unusual when you get certain causes of non-genuine status.

    Please run a full CHKDSK and SFC scan....

     

    Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories

    Right-click on the Command Prompt entry

    Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

     

    At the Command prompt, type

     

    CHKDSK C: /R

     

    and hit the Enter key.

    You will be told that the drive is locked,

    and the CHKDSK will run at he next boot - hit the Y key, press Enter, and then reboot.

     

    The CHKDSK will take a few hours depending on the size of the drive, so be patient!

     

    After the CHKDSK has run, Windows should boot normally (possibly after a second auto-reboot) -

    then run the SFC.

     

    SFC -System File Checker - Instructions

    Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories

    Right-click on the Command Prompt entry

    Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

     

    At the Command prompt, type

     

    SFC /SCANNOW

     

    and hit the Enter key

     

    Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.

     

     

    Copy the CBS.log file created (C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log) to your desktop (you can't manipulate it directly) and then compress the copy and upload it to your SkyDrive Public folder (http://skydrive.live.com ) and post a link to it so that I can take a look.

     

    Post a new MGADiag report with details of any error messages encountered.

  • There is just a single error present in the SFC scan - which has no relevance (and shouldn't be checked in the first place, in my opinion!)

    	Line 263667: 2013-03-24 22:59:55, Info                  CSI    000001ec [SR] Repairing 1 components

    	Line 263671: 2013-03-24 22:59:55, Info                  CSI    000001ef [SR] Cannot repair member file [l:24{12}]"settings.ini" of Microsoft-Windows-Sidebar, Version = 6.0.6002.18005, pA = PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_INTEL (0), Culture neutral, VersionScope = 1 nonSxS, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type neutral, TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral in the store, hash mismatch
    

    There are some older errors present in the normal CBS log - but the latest of those is 10 days old, and relates to an IE 9 update.

    Please download and save  the CheckSUR tool from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821

    (you'll need to look in the details for Windows 7, downloading from the Microsoft Download Center)

     

    Run it - The tool can take anywhere from 5 mins to a couple of hours to run (or 'Install') depending on how much it has to do, and may exit silently - it may appear to freeze for most of that time, but be patient.

    The result is logged in the C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log file  - and an archive …\checksur.persist.log file

     

    Then zip the CheckSUR.log and upload it to your SkyDrive Public folder so I can take a look - post a link in your reply.

  • No problem - I'm not planning on going anywhere :)

    The CheckSUR results are clear - so we just have to worry about the SFC error, an the other CBS log problems....

    I am 99.9% certain that we can ignore the settings.ini error from the SFC report - it's likely to come back almost immediately anyhow. The problem is that 0.1%  - which is that the problem could be malware-related.

    Before I go about doing all sorts of 'wonderful' things, lets see if something fairly simple is the problem....

    Open Windows Explorer (Computer)

    Navigate to the C:\Windows folder

    Find the System32 sub-folder and right-click on it

    select Properties

     

    Clear the 'blob' from the 'Read-only (Only applies to files in folder)' box by clicking on it until it's plain white.

    Click on Apply.

     

    Make sure that the radio button for 'Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files' is set, and click OK.

     

    Accept the Administrator prompt. After a couple of seconds, you'll be told there is an error - click on the 'Ignore all' button.

     

    Wait for it to finish - it could take a couple of minutes.

     

    OK out, and exit Windows Explorer.

     

    Reboot twice
