Validation Not Completed: ActiveX Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm 100% sure i validated my Vista home premium 1 or 2 months ago, but yesterday i had a message saying unauthorized changes and  my vista is not genuine, i bought my Acer PC with vista home premium pre-installed and i checked the sticker, having a Large Manufacturer Pre-installed Windows COAs. i tried to validate again but it says activeX error, i literally turned off the settings or made the security level as low as possible, the problem is the activeX notification doesn't even appear or pop up so how can i let something run if it doesn't pop up?, i even shutdown my internet security and tried using IE and Firefox but there's still no sign of activeX and i'm the only administrator on my PC. I also can't seem to download WGA for my IE but my Firefox has the WGAplug-in.

    ~please help...

  • Hello Toombs,


    we request all users to initially run the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool (MGADT).  This will try and identify the individual issue you may be experiencing.  Please provide a brief synopsis describing your customer scenario, including any dialogue or error messages, or codes. Error codes can be found in the lower left hand corner of most Genuine Advantage web-pages when an error is encountered.

    By clicking the link below, you will download the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool (MGADT).  Then click the Run button. Then click the Run button again. Then click the Continue button to perform the diagnostic. The Windows tab should show, click the Copy button to paste your report to the clipboard.  Then paste the report into a New Post on this Forum by adding a post in it and pressing Ctrl V (to paste the text). Clicking the OK button will clear the Diagnostic window. Here is the download link:

    Please tell us about the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) for your copy of Windows Vista.

    1. What edition/version of Windows Vista is titled?

    ·         Home Basic

    ·         Home Premium 

    ·         Business

    ·         Ultimate

    2. Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?

    3. Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?

    4. Please provide the customer scenario you are experiencing.

    5. DO NOT post the Product Key.

    Not sure what to look for, see this page to reference your COA:
