Windows 7 no longer genuine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit when it first came out.  (Pre-ordered from Newegg).  The installation went fine, everything was going completely smoothly until this happened.  Recently I bought a new external backup hard drive because I needed more space.  I tried a few times to run a from-scratch backup on it and for some reason it kept having errors, something about a shadow copy, but that's for another thread.  The bigger problem was that whenever I tried rebooting with the drive plugged in, the computer would just freeze.  Usually at the BIOS splash screen.  So I would unplug it and restart and stuff worked fine.  Of course, I frequently forgot to unplug it before reboots, so this has happened a few times.

    The last time it happened, I did the unplug/reboot and for some reason everything in Windows was running extremely slowly.  So I rebooted again (with the drive unplugged) and everything was fine... except iTunes had lost all of its playlists and other library information, and when I tried to sync my iPod it claimed it was already synced with another computer.  That's when I started to worry.  The next time I rebooted I had another very sluggish session, and I did a few more reboots attempting Startup Repair and stuff like that, with nothing particularly helping.

    That long story brings me to where I am now, which is that Windows is telling me it's not genuine.  I followed all of the steps that are automatically given and they haven't worked.  I'm figuring this has something to do with unplugging the external drive and somehow screwing up the boot sector or something.  Also, I should mention that I went into Services when I was trying to figure out the backup issue, and I enabled some backup-related services that were disabled.  I definitely don't think I went around disabling anything else, but I thought that might be important. Unfortunately, my last System Restore is from the end of October, so I really want to avoid using that if possible.  (I must have turned it off because of my issues with backup disk space; lesson learned, resolve this kind of stuff quickly instead of letting it sit around.)

    Anyway, here's my MGADiag report:

    I'm actually not sure how to validate Windows from that validation site... It just gives me two choices (Learn more about Genuine Windows / Learn more about Genuine Office) and when I click on the Windows one it's just an information page about what being Genuine means.  I don't see any link to actually do anything.

    I did run CHKDSK and the System File Checker.  While I wasn't at the computer when CHKDSK finished, I do know that the SFC didn't have any errors.

    Here is the new MGADiag, although I'm not sure if it matters.

    I'm out of ideas - we've tried everything I know of.
    Unl;ess Darin, Carl, or Dan have any better advice, I suggest that you start a no-cost support incident with WGA support.

    That long story brings me to where I am now, which is that Windows is telling me it's not genuine.  I followed all of the steps that are automatically given and they haven't worked.  I'm figuring this has something to do with unplugging the external drive and somehow screwing up the boot sector or something.  Also, I should mention that I went into Services when I was trying to figure out the backup issue, and I enabled some backup-related services that were disabled.  I definitely don't think I went around disabling anything else, but I thought that might be important.

    Licensing Data-->

    C:\Windows\system32\slmgr.vbs(1333, 5) (null): The data is invalid. 

     

    the problem lies with the Licensing S\tore, which is to a large extent controlled by the SLMGR.VBS file.
    I would start by attempting to recreate the Licensing Store....
     
    Try the below steps to recreate the Store and its data.
     
    1) Click Start button.
    2) Type: CMD.exe into the 'Search programs and files' field
    3) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select 'Run as Administrator'
    4) Type: net stop sppsvc   (It may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    Note: the Software Protection survive may not be running, this is ok.
    5) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform
    6) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    7) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    8) Type: net start sppsvc
    9) Type: slui.exe
    10) After a couple of seconds Windows Activation dialog will appear. It's most likely that Activation will occur automatically but you may be asked to re-enter your product key and/or to reactivate.
     
     
    Once complete, reboot, then run MGADiag again, and post the new report.

  • That definitely made some sort of difference; the activation wizard gives me more options (activate online, enter key, etc.) and it gives me an error message (upon trying either of those options) instead of just telling me to buy Windows again.  Error Code 0x8007000D.  Here's the new MGADiag.

    HrOnline: 0xC004F022
     
    I'm tempted to ask you to run the same procedure again - but I'm not certain it would be productive. It shouldn't hurt anything though.
    Since you say that you've been having boot problems, it would probably be a good idea to run a
    CHKDSK  C:  /F
    and force a disk check on reboot.
    once that's complete, I'd try a System File Checker run to repair any damaged system files
    System File Checker - Instructions
    Click on the Start button
    type in the Search  box
    CMD.EXE
    right-click on the only file that is found
    Select Run as Administrator
     - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up
    At the Command prompt, type
     
    SFC   /SCANNOW
     
    and hit the Enter key
    Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.

    Visit the Validation site  http://www.microsoft.com/genuine and attempt to Validate Windows - again, make a note of error messages.
    Then try the Licensing Store procedure again.
    Once you've done that lot, post a new MGADiag report.
    Good Luck!

    I'm actually not sure how to validate Windows from that validation site... It just gives me two choices (Learn more about Genuine Windows / Learn more about Genuine Office) and when I click on the Windows one it's just an information page about what being Genuine means.  I don't see any link to actually do anything.

    I did run CHKDSK and the System File Checker.  While I wasn't at the computer when CHKDSK finished, I do know that the SFC didn't have any errors.

    Here is the new MGADiag, although I'm not sure if it matters.

    I'm out of ideas - we've tried everything I know of.
    Unl;ess Darin, Carl, or Dan have any better advice, I suggest that you start a no-cost support incident with WGA support.

  • Update, just for closure: I reinstalled Windows.  Nobody could figure out what was going on.  If I had been keeping my restore points and backups in order, I probably could've done more.

    When I activated at the close of the installation, it worked fine.  So my computer was out of whack somehow, not the actual activation.

  • That much was never at issue :)

    Thanks for coming back to let us know your 'Final Solution' - all too few do.
