      No, your issue is not the same as the post you linked to. The post that you linked to was an "In Memory" Mod-Auth. In Memory Mod-Auths are caused by an incompatible program modifying a Critical System file running in system memory (i.e. the file, itself, located on the hard drive is unmodified).

     

      Your issue is the same as this poster http://forums.microsoft.com/Genuine/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=2970059&SiteID=25 Unfortunetly, my advise to you is the same as what I advised the other poster (quoted below)

    You will notice that under the "File Scan Data-->" line there are a large number of files that are listed as Mismatched. All those files listed are Critical Vista System files. When there is one or two Mismatched files, it means that those files listed have been tampered or corrupted in some way. But in your case the Diagnostic Report is reporting that ALL your Critical Vista System files are Tampered or Corrupted. This is highly unlikly. Whats more likly is that your System Catalog has been tampered or corrupted. The System Catalog stores all the Signatures Hash (think fingerprint) for all the Critical Vista System (and other) files. One of the things that Vista uses the System Catalog for is to identify if a file has been tampered or corupted because if the file had been modified in any way, it's signature hash would not match what is listed in the System Catalog.

     

      Aside from having Vista show as non-genuine, this issue may cause Vista (and possibly other programs) to become unstable and/or not behave incorrectly. I highly recommend using the System Restore process that came with your computer. (how to conduct the system restore may be diffrent for each computer manufacturer, so please see the documentation, that came with your computer, for assistence in the restore process).

     

      Unfortunetly, this is a destructive process, meaning all settings, files and programs (that were installed after the computer was built) will be lost. Vista will be restored to how it was when it came from the factory.  I highly recommend backing up your importent files to removable storage (Disk, Removable Hard Drive...so on).

     

    I am very sorry, I know my suggestion will not make you happy, but it is the only sure way I know of to fix your issue. If it's any consolation, this is a very rare issue (i've only seen it three times) so it should not happen to you again.

     

    Note: My area of expertise is with Vista Activation and Validation, so if you would like to get a second opinion and/or see if the Vista Support engineers have a better solution for you, please go to http://support.microsoft.com to learn of your Vista support options.  You may also try posting your issue (and my diagnosis) in one of the Vista newgroups at  http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=42486 and see if the Vista community has any better suggestions.

    Hi Darin,

     

    Thanks for your reply. I had kind of already geared myself up for a full system restore, because even if there was a 'solution' I don't think I would ever be entirely happy with my pc.

     

    Many thanks for your help and honesty.
