Another validation problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • A few hours ago, a message popped up saying that my license key was invalid. I have been using Vista for about a month now and this has never happened.

    It says that there is a file mismatch error or something, take a look:

    I can't have Vista Aero, access the control panel and a whole bunch of other things.

    Please help!

    P.S. here is the MGdiag results:

    EDIT: Most likely this is made by nProtect GameGuard because this message appeared at the same time that I have installed GameGuard.

  • Apparently Gameguard and Vista dont do so well together. I suggest removing Gameguard and then Right Click "Computer" in the start menu and click on change product key on the bottom of the new window. That should re-activate your windows. Hopefully.

    Worse case scenario is reinstall of Vista.
