Windows 7 abruptly gone non-genuine - and an e-mail suggests I upgraded to Windows 8 (which I didn't) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Windows 7 on a Dell Latitude E5410 - bought in 2010 - has worked fine until 15 August 2013.

    It now tells me it is build 7600 - but is not Genuine.  Unfortunately the Windows Product ACtivioation Key sticker is no longer attached to the laptop - and Dell tell me they don't keep a record of activation keys.

    I recently installed Office 365 - but that has been working OK for several weeks.

    About the same time as things went sour I received an e-mail that claims to be from Microsoft thanking me for upgrading to Windows 8 (which I haven't done!!)

    Suspecting a virus I use AVG Internet Security - and have run a full system scan - all clean.

    I've read the various Community reports and tried all the various suggestion - but am still stuck

    Any and all help and suggestions appreciated.

  • You have a Trusted Store Tamper - often the result of a malware infestation.

    Please download and install  Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) from  http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/ - UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM PRO' at the end of the installation -  and update it, then run a full scan  in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.

     

    Delete everything it finds   

    Then...

    Please run a full CHKDSK and SFC scan....

     

    Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories

    Right-click on the Command Prompt entry

    Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.

     

    At the Command prompt, type

     

    CHKDSK C: /R

     

    and hit the Enter key.

    You will be told that the drive is locked,

    and the CHKDSK will run at he next boot - hit the Y key, press Enter, and then reboot.

     

    The CHKDSK will take a few hours depending on the size of the drive, so be patient!

     

    After the CHKDSK has run, Windows should boot normally (possibly after a second auto-reboot) -

    then run the SFC.

     

    SFC -System File Checker - Instructions

    Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories

    Right-click on the Command Prompt entry

    Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - 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.

     

     

    Copy the CBS.log file created (C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log) to your desktop (you can't manipulate it directly) and then compress the copy and upload it to your SkyDrive Public folder (http://skydrive.live.com ) and post a link to it so that I can take a look.

     

    Post a new MGADiag report with details of any error messages encountered.
