Windows Not Genuines error 0x8004fe21, Please Help.

I recently reinstalled my windows a few days ago onto a new SSD, went fine, updated everything etc... Now it's giving me this error, although I've activated my windows at least 3 times to rid this popup by "change product key" in the system window and also went through tech support on the phone. It is validated as genuine each time. (Not much help from tech support). If I could just suppress the popup as my computer is still saying it's genuine everywhere else. (going to upgrade to Windows 8 when it's released for the windows upgrade program so if I don't NEED to fix the core problem, suppressing would be alright)

Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

Please run a full CHKDSK and SFC scan....
Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-click on the Command Prompt entry
Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - 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 Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-click on the Command Prompt entry
Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - 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.
Copy the CBS.log file created to your desktop (you can't manipulate it directly) and then compress the copy and upload it to your SkyDrive (http://skydrive.live.com ) and post a link to it so that I can take a look.

Post a new MGADiag report with details of any error messages encountered.

That seems to have fixed it (to my surprise!)
You should confirm this by validating at www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate using Internet Explorer 32-bit.
If you pass (you should) you'll be offered MSE and IE9 - you don't have to take them!
