It's surprising how long some problems take to show up - but I would have expected this one to show up earlier.
Please run the standard file file-system checks.....
running CHKDSK and SFC

type in the Search box
CMD.EXE
right-click on the only file that is found
Select Run as Administrator
- the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up
At the Command prompt, type
CHKDSK C: /R
and hit the Enter key
You will be told that the drive is locked, and the CHKDSK will run at he next boot - hit the Y key, and then reboot. The chkdsk will take a few hours depending on the size of the drive, so be patient!

After the CHKDSK has run, Windows should boot normally (possibly after a second auto-reboot) - then run the SFC

SFC -System File Checker - Instructions
Click on the Start button
type in the Search box
CMD.EXE
right-click on the only file that is found
Select Run as Administrator
- the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up
At the Command prompt, type

SFC /SCANNOW

and hit the Enter key
Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.

run another MGADiag report, and post the results.

I specialise in this particular area - and have dealt with something like 4000 reports in the past couple of years
I just wish I had access to some of the tools available within MS, and a decent internet connection so I could do remote access for diagnostics.
Every case is a challenge - and every time I learn a little more.

Once we get the CScript error fixed, you will have a decision to make, depending on the history of your machine.
You have a COA sticker on the case with a Product Key on it - is it legible? If so, have you EVER used it before?
If you have NOT used it, then there should be no problem about activation - although you may have to use Telephone activation.

If you have used the Key before, then you will certainly need to use telephone activation, and sweet-talk the operator into allowing your change of motherboard on the basis of replacement for defect.
It may be allowed - or it may not.

If it is not allowed, then your only option is to purchase a new Full Retail license for Windows 7 Home Premium (or higher) - you can then use the Change Product Key link in the same way you already did, to change the Key to your new one, and activate the machine.

Any suggestions as to why I got a Not Genuine message and why my PID disappeared?
Your PID disappeared because (un)installing the SP forces a re-evaluation of the license - and that is not possible with the status shown in your report.

I do have a coa sticker. But i did use the windows serial key like i mentioned before. Is that what you mean? Because this was a prebuilt dell. So there is also a dell product code on there aswell. Which are you reffering to?

I typed the serial in to make the not genuine message disapear. So it is saved in my machine right now
So will i need to talk to an operator to fix this?

We'll see what happens when we get the next MGADiag report. So long as you didn't use the COA Key before then you should be OK.

I ran the disk check, and everything was booted when i checked back in a few hours. I then ran the scan like you told me. It only went through one phase, which was a verification phase. Then it told me that windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations. However in the MGADiag report my pc still can't find the vbscript. Here is the report after the scan and disk check:
