  • Looks like you have a trusted data store tamper, which means you'll have to reactivate.  If you reboot while you have this tamper, you'll get a prompt after logging in where you can enter you product key (so have it handy) and reactivate.  Can you think of anything that might have caused this?  Thanks!

  • Do I understand correctly that you're getting error code 0xC004D301?  Have you tried to activate yet?

     

    Thanks

  • I have the same problem after malware attack - yesterday some pest got to my computer (first in years, i was stupid on torrents), and after deleting about 30 dlls created in 5mins from attacks start (from parallel installation of windows XP), vista told me this message, and in my control panel I see just blank space, no icons.

     

    So, check your PC's health, maybe you are a victim of malware...
