Today, 1/29/11, I once more got the not genuine error message. Windows Genuine Advantage (WGA) is not installed, nor any of the related dll's. What gives and how does one fix this?

    WGA *is* installed - WAT may not be. If you've been trying to manipulate the WGA system, then that is almost certainly the source of your problems.
    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
    Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
    To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
