  • Hello,



    Vista is in, what is called a 'Mod-Auth' Tamper state.  There are 2 types of Mod-Auth tampers.


    1) A critical system file was modified On Disk - What this means is that the file, located on the hard drive, was modified in some way. This can be caused by random file corruption, a malicious program (spyware, malware, virus) or by manual file modification (by a user of the system). There is also a very small chance that an Update may fail in mid-update and cause this type of issue. As a safety mechanism, Updates are made so that if they fail, they roll back any updating that was done before the failure, but there is an off-chance that the roll back did not occure.


    2) A critical system file was modified In Memory - What this means is the file itself (on the hard drive) is un-modified, but the code, from that file, running in the system, was modified in some way. and is usually caused by a running program that is incompatible with Vista.


      Because of the Mismatched file listed under the "File Scan Data-->" line of your Diagnostic Report, your issue is an On Disk Mod-Auth. The Mismatched file (dnsapi.dll) is the file that has been Modified or has become corrupted.


      Normally, I would just have you re-install a past update that contained the file. This would replace the bad file with an unmodified/corrupted copy. Unfortunately, I know of no updates that contain a copy of dnsapi.dll. So the only suggestions I can provide are to:


    a) Re-install Vista using the Windows Restore software that came with your computer. The software may have been provided on a CD/DVD or on a partition on the computer's hard drive. Please see the documentation that came with the computer (or contact the computer's manufacturer) for assistance in conducting the Windows Restore process.


    b) Go to http://support.microsoft.com for additional Vista support options. Even though the result is that Vista's anti-piracy systems have put Vista into a tamper state, the core issue is that a critical system file has been changed  and, most likely, is non-functional. My hope is that Vista support can provide you with a better option then to re-install.


    Thank you,
