  • The problem arose because the System32 files had been made read-only - do NOT set them back that way!

    Sometimes this occurs because of ill-advised users thinking it's a good idea, possibly becuase of something they read in an out-of-date web article somewhere.

    Soetimes it can be the result of running very badly-designed software.

    Sometimes it's the result of malware.

    Almost no files need to be marked as 'read-only' - it prevents all changes required for installation of updates, and prevents the system updating the licensing data on each boot (which then prevents the Software Protection Service starting - resulting in the non-genuine notification)

  • This may simply be caused by a bad set of Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers -  

     

    Installing the Intel Rapid Storage Drivers

    try downloading and installing them from here - http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=2101&DwnldID=21730

     

    Once complete, please reboot twice, then post another MGADiag report.

  • no change :(

    It looks as if you may have a number of problems, so let's see if we can identify them all at once....

    There is a problem
    with your Software Protection Service - something is preventing it from
    starting on demand the way it should.

    Please use the
    following in an attempt to isolate the cause.

     

    Click on Start

    in the Search box,
    type

    SERVICES.MSC

    and hit the Enter
    key - accept the UAC prompt if you get one.

    Look in the console
    for the Software Protection service, right-click on it and select Properties.

    make sure that the
    Startup Type is set to Automatic (Delayed Start), and click Apply.

     

    Try starting the
    service now - do you get an error message? Does it start? does it almost
    immediately stop again?

    Post back with your
    results, and a new MGADiag report.

     

    If it doesn't start,
    then please do the following...

    Please open an
    Elevated (Administrator) Command Prompt window and use the following
    commands....

     

    net start sppsvc
    sc qc sppsvc
    sc queryex sppsvc
    sc qprivs sppsvc
    sc qsidtype sppsvc
    sc sdshow sppsvc 
    NET START CRYPTSVC
    SC QC CRYPTSVC
    SC QUERYEX CRYPTSVC

     Here are some instructions to make life easier :)

    1) To open an Elevated Command Prompt Window (the CP window), click on Start, All Programs, Accessories – then right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt.

    2) To run the commands easier, highlight the block of commands, and right-click on the highlight – select Copy. In the CP Windows, click on the black/white icon at top left – select Paste. The commands will run but may not complete the last command, so hit the Enter Key once.

  • GOTCHA!

    To correct this:-

     

    Open Windows
    Explorer (Computer)

    Navigate to the C:\Windows folder

    Find the System32 sub-folder and right-click on it

    select Properties

     

    Clear the 'blob'
    from the 'Read-only (Only applies to files in folder)' box by clicking on it
    until it's plain white.

    Click on Apply.

     

    Make sure that the
    radio button for 'Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files' is set,
    and click OK.

     

    Accept the
    Administrator prompt. After a couple of seconds, you'll be told there is an
    error - click on the 'Ignore all' button.

     

    Wait for it to finish - it could take a couple
    of minutes.

     

    OK out, and exit
    Windows Explorer.

     

    Reboot twice

     

    Post a new MGADiag
    report.

  • BINGO!

    That got it :)

    Please confirm by going to www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate and validating the install.

    Hopefully it will pass, and you'll be offered IE9 and MSE (you don't have to take them!)

  • Thanks Noel! Looks like it is working and it was able to get all pending updates.

    To my curiosity confirm is all we did was to make the systesm32 folder  readable by unchecking the read only blob ?

    DO I need it to put it back to read only again? can you pls explain the soln we did.

    thanks a ton! 

    Wednesday, September 5, 2012 3:17 AM
  • The problem arose because the System32 files had been made read-only - do NOT set them back that way!

    Sometimes this occurs because of ill-advised users thinking it's a good idea, possibly becuase of something they read in an out-of-date web article somewhere.

    Soetimes it can be the result of running very badly-designed software.

    Sometimes it's the result of malware.

    Almost no files need to be marked as 'read-only' - it prevents all changes required for installation of updates, and prevents the system updating the licensing data on each boot (which then prevents the Software Protection Service starting - resulting in the non-genuine notification)
