windows validation problems RRS feed

  • Question


    i did all of this


    Recommended Solution
    Restart the Software Licensing service.
    Click the Start button, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then choose Run as administrator. The Command Prompt window opens.
    In the Command Prompt window, type the command net start slsvc and then press ENTER.
    When the message "Software Licensing service was started" appears, close Command Prompt window.
    Validate your copy of Windows again by going to http://www.Microsoft.com/genuine and clicking Validate Windows.
    If Windows validation still fails after restarting the Software Licensing service, then try repairing the corrupted file with Disk Cleanup. The Disk Cleanup process will handle finding the files and prompting to repair them.
    For the latest information on compatibility issues, visit the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Forum (English Only) or Windows Vista Newsgroups. A solution for known compatibility issues may be available from Microsoft or from the software vendor.
    If there are no known issues with software already installed on your computer, it may be necessary to remove any recently installed software (including Microsoft updates) in order to resolve the problem. To uninstall programs, open Programs and Features by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Programs and Features. Select a program, and then click Uninstall
