Windows 7: Query

Query

Have a friend who bought a used machine for his young teenage son that I think is dodgy - bought it as seen from one of his wife's work mates.

I suspect the 7 he has is not an entirely genuine one as the machine was originally a Vista one and there is no MBR (I think the HDD has been scrubbed or replaced)and I can find no way of factory defaulting it -I've tried numerous ways but nothing.

The only thing I have is the OEM Product ID in "System" and I don't want to go checking too deeply as obviously as I don't want to get him into strife, as he is not computer savvy - nor am I for that matter but I can spot something not quite right like this puppy.

I did find some cookies of porn sites on it that I cannot get rid of - ideas?? I can clear them with CC but if one uninstalls and reinstalls the CC the cookies come back!

Run this tool.

Click on the Copy tab at the bottom, paste into notepad, save as .txt file, upload the file here. Looking at the file, I may be able to tell you whether windows is genuine.

Also, if its not genuine OEM, there wont be a recovery partition so factory restore will not be possible.

Ok Bill

Bill I have copied the result form the machine to a stick hopefully this will work ok as I didn't want to risk sending a virus or whatever on it as I did find that rootkit when tidying it up.

As I said I am not that savvy re these things yet hence me doing it this way as a precaution.

I had a look at the mgadiag report and the disk management. The mgadiag does not show anything that would immediately identify the system as non-genuine. Its using a system builder license (the types you get from newegg) so there would be a disk lying around that can be used to clean install with. The only odd thing is the remaining rearm count is 4, only 3 rearm counts are available normally. This means the install has been tampered in some way.

Also, since the machine bios is dated 2007, it could not possibly have come with win7 preinstalled this is also confirmed by the mgadiag report and the snip which does not show any factory partition.

Best bet would be to reinstall windows- get your friend to cough up the disk and product key he used. Till you get around to doing that, you can also visit the MS genuine site and validate the install, there could be other issues like the same key being used on multiple computers.

By installing SP1, an extra rearm is given. For those who haven't update to SP1, it will still show 3 rearms.

Thanks Bill

Sorry for late reply mate - work and all that.

So it's quite an old machine isn't it?

Hmmmm as I said my mate got it from one his wife's work colleagues and not knowing that he should have got the disk off this bloke - there isn't one to hand.

Yeh the machine was originally Vista as it has the NEC and Microsoft Vista compliance sticker on the bottom (the one with the Vista OEM Activation code, Serial No. etc).

So when I tried to factory default it absolutely nothing happened which immediately made me think the original owner had either completely wiped / destroyed the MBR or replaced the drive with new one.

Now the second theory I don't think is quite right as the HDD is only a 120Gb one, and who in their right mind would replace it with such a small one??

So I am guessing that the owner put on a pirated or "acquired" OEM version of 7.
He has used it for a while himself (or someone has) and then sold it on hence my finding those porn cookies still in it.

OR I am beginning to have a rather nasty suspiscion that he might have been sold a "fell off the back of a truck or bought it from a bloke in a pub" machine if you get my drift!

I've set some security on it for him - MSE & the free Malwarebytes as it had nothing and it works just fine. I don't know how he wants the email set up as it has Office on it and anyway that is his decision.

I am going to contact him in the next couple of days to find out where it came from but am not going to hold my breath that he will be told the truth!!

I'm just really angry at some person selling this machine to him as he doesn't have a lot of disposable income being disabled. Plus I guess any chance of him getting his money back is going to be negligable.

Hey but look thanks so much for having a look for me as I don't understand that stuff - and to the other guys input too everyone in this forum is SO pleasant and I am in your debt and very appreciative!!
