Windows 7: Error "This copy of Windows is not genuine".


02 Oct 2012   #1

Windows 7 64-bit
 
 
Error "This copy of Windows is not genuine".

I have read several threads regarding this error message, but the solutions seemed varied. I found a Trojan on my system that I removed but the damage was done. How can I return to a valid version of Windows 7 as this is definitely valid. I ran a MGADiag as it seems to give the indicators but I can't read it. Please help!

There is nothing amiss in your report - are you still seeing the non-genuine messages??
Please attempt validation at www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate using Internet Explorer.

Your Office installation, though, is probably non-genuine unless you acquired it through your employer or college.

I ran went to the windows site and it is valid but I rebooted and received the same "build 7601. The copy of Windows is not genuine" during boot but it didn't remain there as it did before. The boot process now takes a REALLY long time (1 -2 hours) and I just got a message "Failed to connect to a windows service" apparently unable to connect to "System Event Notification Service". Did the Trojan do permanent damage to my system. Still waiting to get it booted to a state where I can run another diagnostic.

This sounds as if you may have been severly infested with a Trojan - possibly Sirefef.
I would recommend backing up your data to external media now, and then doing a reformat and reinstall from the Recovery media - see your manual for instructions.

According to AVG, it was "Trojan horse Generic 27.BFMF". I have Carbonite so my crucial files are safe, but is there a way to restore it without having to do a hard reset? I don't haven't any restore points set.

It's safest to reformat - although I can't find anything sensible on the weg about this particular variant.
See what malwarebytes has to say - do all the following in Safe Mode with Networking.


Please download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) from www.malwarebytes.org - UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM PRO' at the end of the installation - and update it, then run a full scan in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.

Delete everything it finds

I'd follow Noels suggestion, you would then be sure that the Trojan was gone. Restore points are not the same as doing a Recovery it's possible your restore points could have all been wiped out via the infections anyway so wouldn't have helped you.

You say your files are safe, in that case do the reformat and restore, do you have a recovery partition or a set of disc's from the Manufacturer ?

I'm currently going through my 200 gb of pics, and video to make sure I'm backed up to Carbonite. Interestingly I found the recovery disc from Dell for this laptop and it says XP service pack 3 but I paid for and am running Windows 7. I think I owe Dell a phone call.

I ran the malwarebytes program and it found 3 adware which were removed.

If your system came with Windows 7 installed then there is a Del Utility to create a REAL Win 7 DVD or ISO to burn to DVD or thumb drive. Dell Data Recovery 2 or Dell Backup & Recovery.

Hi,

I agree with others here, you should wipe your disk and perform a clean installation. If you follow this tutorial carefully, you will see that you can download a Windows 7 ISO to perform your install with, without having to wait on Dell:

Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
