Vista won't active after 1 year RRS feed

  • Question

  • Everything worked fine for about 1 year.  Then all of a sudden I can't do updates.  Troubleshooting points toward the fact that my windows is saying that it is not activated.  I am pretty sure that I had activated it as I was able to do updates for the past year.  I tried to enter the product key,  to no avail.  Tried to start the software license, it won't start either.

  • Hello JSAndersen,

      The Diagnostic Report indicates that Vista is experiencing a Tamper.I know this because the TTS Error line is showing a Time Stamp for when the last Tamper occured. the letter in front of the timestamp tells us what type of Tamper it is (M=Mod-Auth, K=Kernel Mod and T= Trusted Store).  However, our's starts with a "P".  I'll be honest, in the 3 years I've been supporting WGA on Vista, I have never seen a P type Tamper and don't even know what it stands for.

      I can give you steps that may or may not help (they usually fix issues associated with not being able to activate or where the Product Key not being accepted).  

    1) Open an Internet Browser
    2) Type: %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.
    3) Find the file CMD.exe
    4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select 'Run as Administrator'
    5) Type: net stop slsvc  (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing
    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    8) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    9) Type: net start slsvc
    10) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)
    11) Reboot Twice
    12) You will likely be asked to enter a Product Key. Use th one found on the sticker on the side or bottom of the computer

      In addition, since we have found that many tampers can be caused by a Malware infection, I would also recommend scanning your computer with a Anti-Virus program (perferably multiple scanned with multiple different AV programs).

      If what I have given doesn't resolve the issue, the next step would be to create a (no cost) Service Request at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52029 for further assistance. 

    Sorry I couldn't be more help,
    Darin MS

    p.s. If/when you resolve the issue, please post back with the fix.  It could help someone having the same issue.
