Windows 7 Validates but then reprompts later for validation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     

    I have a Windows 7 computer built from an image that we use in our office.  All other PCs are fine, but this one will prompt every now and then saying it's not genuine.  I can run the activate windows from the start menu and it activates just fine.  But if I visit the online activation site (http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate/) it says files are missing or have been changed.  I ran the diagnostic tool with the following results.  I plan on running the sfc /scannow tool to see if it corrects it, but any other suggestions or ideas on how this happened?

    I downloaded that and it installed a patch.  Was there something else that tool is supposed to do?
     
     
    CheckSUR? – if you read the article I linked to, it produces a report in the CBS folder – feel free to email it to me at ngsATcrashfixpcDOTcoDOTuk (make the obvious changes) or put it up on your SkyDrive and post the link.
     
    Basically, it checks a lot of settings and files in the OS, and fixes those things it knows how to fix – unfortunately it’s not all-knowing, but it does get updated every so often (at least as I understand it), so it gets better over time.
     
    Please post another MGADiag report – it may show some difference.

  • It appears you have installed a "Volume License" version of Windows 7 Professional.  The only product key that will work with this version is a Volume License product key.  So the question is, are you typing in a genuine Volume License product key or are you attempting to type in a Retail or OEM Windows 7 product key?

    Since you are using an MAK license, I suggest that you contact your System Administrator for assistance – there’s likely to be very little that we can do in the forums.

    I am the system admin, that's why I'm here.  :-)

     

    As for the Volume license key, it should be part of the image.  But just to make sure, I went through the process of changing the key and inputed my volume license key.  No change.

     

    The SFC program also did not fix the issue.  I could retry running the diagnostics again though see if changed anything.

    The set of errors in this case are a familiar one – which we haven’t been able to sort in the forums. I suggest that you see if you can use your volume licensing contacts to assist, or use WGA Support.
    (just for interest, what AV is in use?)

  • As one can tell by your MGA Report, you have significant system file corruption that would require a reinstallation of the Windows 7 operating sytem:

  • There isn't a simple fix other than reinstalling? I find it hard to believe there are all these "corrupt" files on a machine only a couple months old that runs great other than this problem.

    Is it possible there is a simpler program, like WGA looking for the wrong file versions, like Pre SP1 vs SP1?

    Just for giggles, I looked at some files in question on a Win 7 machine that validates just fine and compared them to the computer in question. They are clearly older versions. Do I maybe need to reinstall SP1?

    ?

    There isn't a simple fix other than reinstalling? I find it hard to believe there are all these "corrupt" files on a machine only a couple months old that runs great other than this problem.

    Is it possible there is a simpler program, like WGA looking for the wrong file versions, like Pre SP1 vs SP1?

    Just for giggles, I looked at some files in question on a Win 7 machine that validates just fine and compared them to the computer in question. They are clearly older versions. Do I maybe need to reinstall SP1?

     

    According to the  report, SP1 isn’t installed at all – certainly it’s worth a shot installing it, but don’t hold your breath.
    One other thing that may be worth a try first is the CheckSUR tool - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821

  • I just noticed that as well.  I'm installing SP1 tonight.

  • I downloaded that and it installed a patch.  Was there something else that tool is supposed to do?

    CheckSUR? – if you read the article I linked to, it produces a report in the CBS folder – feel free to email it to me at ngsATcrashfixpcDOTcoDOTuk (make the obvious changes) or put it up on your SkyDrive and post the link.
     
    Basically, it checks a lot of settings and files in the OS, and fixes those things it knows how to fix – unfortunately it’s not all-knowing, but it does get updated every so often (at least as I understand it), so it gets better over time.
     
    Please post another MGADiag report – it may show some difference.
