Genuine resetting back to 'not genuine' RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    After successful activation, 'not genuine' watermark and black background keep appearing randomly. I did validate the pre-installed Win 7 two times so far through Microsoft's web, and both time I received "this system is legit" message (with watermark disappearing), but after several hours of using my laptop, it just comes back and background turns black again. I really have no clue what else to do, so I hope someone here could help me. Here is the log:

  • If it's appearing and disappearing in the same session, then it's almost ccertainly a race condition - caused by something running in the backgroundand interfering. Such problems are usually the result of incompatiblity of the Avit-Virus. I know Avast has problems with early SP levels of XP and Vista - maybe it's also creating this problem in Win7?

    If so, then the best cure is to update Win7 fully after uninstalling Avast - once fully updated, you can reinstall avast again.

  • Visit Genuine Microsoft Software – Diagnostic Site and click on Start Diagnostics.  After completion, restart your computer.

  • You need to run the report when the non-genuine message is showing in order for the report to be helpful.  You may be encountering a software conflict or a race condition.  You can try restarting in clean start mode and then troubleshoot by adding back non-Microsoft programs until you see the condition reoccur.  That will identify the culprit if it is an offending program.  Of course you need to run each step long enough to be satisfied that you have not yet found the cause.  The clean start method is a great troubleshooter but does take patience.  The Clean Startup page includes a FixIt wizard.

  • Thanks for answers so far.

    I did run the diagnostic (with result being all green) and restarted PC before, but the problem is the watermark never appears instantly after start/restart - it always takes 4 to 5 hours of PC being on until it appears again. Once I run the diagnostic or try to re-validate it, the watermark disappears, but so far it always came back.

    As for the other tip - the report was actually run while the message was showing on. I don't have too much experience with clean startup mode, but if the watermark appears only after 4 hours of waiting, starting programs one by one and waiting for it to appear would indeed take a lot of patience :)

    Ran the diagnostic and restarted again though, so I will see if the message comes back or not this time.

  • Use the clean startup mode.  It could take many days to track down.  Also if you are using Norton AV consider uninstalling for now and using Microsoft Security Essentials.  The MGADiag tool has some self-healing capabilities so just running the tool might be what caused it not to find anything we can identify.

  • I almost thought the diagnostic+immediate restart method worked, but the message has returned back today again...

    As this is my primary computer and I can not afford to let it run in clean startup mode for days, I suppose I will have to stick with the watermark and keep removing it manually by re-validating everytime it appears. (I just realized it disappears even if I run the diagnostic tool, so it could be done in offline mode too).

    Well, thanks for help anyway. If there is anything I could still try (that wouldn't take days), let me know.

    BTW I use Avast!, not Norton, if that changes anything.

    the Admin Service error is one I don’t recall seeing before – it may be the result of going to the Validation suite using Opera, rather than either FireFox or IE.
     
    The other error usually indicates that there is corruption in the Licensing Store.
    Recreate the Licensing Store
    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 service 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. You may be asked to re-activate and/or re-enter your product key or Activation may occur automatically.

    Reboot and attempt Validation again at www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate (using either IE or FireFox) and Post back with a new MGADiag report and the validation result.

  • Okay, did all of that - activation was performed automatically and was successful, validation through IE 9 was successful, and I suppose the report below will show no errors either... But I suppose I will have to wait a bit more to see if it helped in the long run.

    Okay, did all of that - activation was performed automatically and was successful, validation through IE 9 was successful, and I suppose the report below will show no errors either... But I suppose I will have to wait a bit more to see if it helped in the long run.

    That log looks OK
     
    You need to check the report produced by the CHKDSK run to see what it found.
    Open Event Viewer, and look in the Windows Application logs – filter on Event Source Wininit, and copy the contents of today’s CHKDSK log (the General tab – highlight the contents of the box, and use Ctrl+C) and paste it into your response. The presence of ANY bad sectors in the report is a sign that the disk is failing and needs to be replaced urgently.

  • Event Viewer doesn't provide me with any CHKDSK reports (no Wininit or 1001 events), but I ran it manually for the system disk and luckily there are no bad sectors at all, so it should not be the disk problem.

    That said, the watermark still keeps appearing, so it was probably not the problem of Licensing Store either...

  • If it's appearing and disappearing in the same session, then it's almost ccertainly a race condition - caused by something running in the backgroundand interfering. Such problems are usually the result of incompatiblity of the Avit-Virus. I know Avast has problems with early SP levels of XP and Vista - maybe it's also creating this problem in Win7?

    If so, then the best cure is to update Win7 fully after uninstalling Avast - once fully updated, you can reinstall avast again.
