Windows 7 not genuine error message after restore to earlier point-unable to install windows updates or IE RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a a laptop Acer Aspire 5534 64 bit with windows 7 home premium and service pack 1 that was activated and validated/used since 2010/11 with no issues until recently. I realized it did not have any windows updates for a few months. I decided to install all the latest important/critical ones but soon after windows would not load properly and/or would crash. I tried repair but did not work so I restored to earlier time. The latest one did not wok so I restored to an earlier one from 2013. I then tried installing all the missing windows updates, IE etc but nothing worked and soon started receiving the error this copy of windows 7 build 7601 is not genuine. I have ran multiple virus/malware scans and everything comes clean. I hesitate to restore to factory settings as I don't know if this will solve the issue and the label for windows 7 has faded due to previous laptop overheating. I can sort of read it and have the numbers. This is my sister's laptop and she does not want to lose 5 years worth of info. although we are trying to save to portable media all we can. We could really use some help/advice. Thank you for the help. I am attaching copy of MGA diagnostic:

  • There are no errors in your report - Windows is showing as being Activated and Validated OK on 22/8/16.

    If you are seeing transient non-genuine notifications, this can be caused by conflicting AV/anti-malware applications. What AV is currently installed? what other AV's have ever been installed? What anti-malware applications are installed?

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.
