an unauthorized change was made to Windows, error code 0x80070426; Windows is not activated and cannot be activated RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using an asus laptop. I was trying to install an update on Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1 when this error came. about a week a go, I had just installed microsoft security essentials after i had uninstalled my norton internet security 2010. at first, i thought the problem was with the . net framework so i uninstalled framework 1.1 and downloaded it again. it didn't solve the problem. i then saw the error message. and when i restarted my computer it said "unauthorized change was made to windows" with error code 0x80070426. i searched for solutions and tried them. nothing was successful. i tried starting the software licensing services in the control panel and it was also unsuccessful, displaying the error code:0xc004d103. i then tried using the command prompt, but was again unsuccessful, i received the error: system error 5 occured. now, i don't know if there's also a problem on my .net framework. what i'm sure about is that there is an activation problem. so please help me. here is the diagnostic report from the windows genuine advantage diagnostic tool:

  • Hello, naviboy

    Looking at the report, it looks like the Software Licensing Service has stopped.

    Try to restart the service using the 'Service Restart' steps, below. If the service won't restart, you will receive an error.

     (If you have access to the Start button):

    1.    Click the Start button

    2.    Type: cmd in the Start Search field

    3.    At the top the Start window, you will see cmd.exe

    4.    Right Click cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator

    5.    Type: net start slsvc

    (If you do not have access to the Start button):

    1.      Click the option that launches an Internet Browser

    2.      A Browser will open, type: %windir%\system32 into the address field

    3.      Find the file cmd.exe

    4.      Right Click on the cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator

    5.      Type: net start slsvc

    After the service starts, try activating / validating once more.

    See the following if you get an error starting the service.

    A)     If the error message is "System Error 3, The system cannot find the path specified." or "System Error 2, The system cannot find the file specified": Go to the main Vista Validation forum page http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/genuinevista/threads/, look in the announcement section and follow the steps found in thread "Fix for ‘Software Licensing service Has Stopped’ on some Vista 64bit systems"

    B)     If you receive any other error (System Error 5, System Error 57346 or System Error 54273): These occur as a result of massive file corruption. Usual causes are either Malware Infection or failing Hard Drive. The only resolution we can suggest is reinstall Vista.

    C)     If you receive no System Error and the Service start but then stops almost immediately: Something is apparently actively stopping the service. Most likely caused by some other dependent Windows Service or possibly a Malware infection.
