Windows 7: missing OS name in system properties and system information

27 Mar 2011   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

maybe it's kinda a bad news... the software that you offered me to edit the information entry in system properties doesn't work at all... well.. maybe I have to pass this problem since this doesn't effect any of my daily work... It's normal and no problems since updated to SP1, I have no worries in my mind.

I still have my backup image before upgrading to SP1 just in case, I still looking for a solution for this problem tought.. thanks for the assistance..

Sometimes a program won't work properly unless you Run As Administrator. See Option Two in this tutorial. If you've already tried this, sorry I can't be of more help.

Run as Administrator

You can get back some of the space used up during the service pack 1 install. I believe though that once you delete the backup files you won't be able to un-install the service pack. > Windows 7 SP1 Disk Cleanup Tool

You can also try sfc.

Please Run sfc /scan now using option 2 in this tutorial: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Please post back the results.

The OEM info that is displayed on the System page is in [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation].
All that's there on my PC is Logo, Manufacturer, Model, and SupportURL.

What is listed for "Product Name" in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion
Mine shows "Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center" which is what is listed under Windows Edition on my System page.
