Windows Not Genuine with MAK Volume Key? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a user in our company who is getting an error message about windows not being genuine. The user had Windows 7 installed on a machine and then had that hard drive swapped into a machine of the same model with the only difference being the new machine had a webcam built in. After about a month, the user is getting the "Windows Is Not Genuine" error message although the machine activates successfully and we are using a MAK key.


    Here is the diagnostic report from the users machine:

  • Hi Shane ETS,

     

    To your question about clearing out all data about the current product license, the best I have are steps to recreate Windows 7's Licensing Store.  Given the issues you describe and the fact that the Diagnostic Report shows no issues, i believe this has a fairly good chance of resolving the issue.

    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.

     

    11) If in step 10 you are not asked to re-enter the product key, you may want to 'change' the Product key (to the same key currently being used).  Open the System window and click the Change Product key button and just enter the same key currently being used by that Windows.  

     

     If this does not resolve the issue (and if the newly generated Diagnostic Report isn't any different to the original), I recommend contacting Microsoft Assisted Support (at one of the below URLs) for further assistance with the issue.

    This machine appears to be properly activated and validated - was it showing as non-genuine at the time of the report?
    I can see no problems, so let's try and give it a kick using manual validation.....
    go to www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate and see whether the machine validates properly - if it doesn't, you should be informed as to why, and offered the Diagnostics. Take them, and follow the suggestions  - once you get all green lights, try validation again.

  • When I ran the tool on that site on the user's machine, it claimed that essential windows file for validation have been modifed and gave me three choices (Purchase a valid license key, An exploit software has been run on the machine and Malware has changed the windows files). I know none of these occurred though. Does anyone have any additional ideas how to sort this out? Is there a way I can clear out all data about the current product license associated with the machine and just re-enter the key?

  • Would you create a new Diagnostic Report but this time ensure it is created while the Non-Genuine issue is occuring.

  • The non-genuine issue appears during login when the user is prompted with a dialog box saying windows is not genuine. The original report created was generated on a day the user experienced the issue but I will create another one with the user (I do not expect it to be any different however).
