Windows 7: Windows not a Genuine copy

You need to rip out WinPatrol by the roots, in that case.
I can't find a dedicated uninstaller for it - try using Revo Uninstaller, which gets good ratings from the guys here (I've only used it a couple of times, so can't comment) Revo Uninstaller Pro - Uninstall Software, Remove Programs easily, Forced Uninstall

There's a good chance that the dregs of it are getting in the way of some things, at least.

Need Help deciphering Windows Log File

Thought if a trained eye could glance at this we might get the fix faster.

Thanks in advance !

P.S. i did run the Fixit Tool to fix the error 8024402f

Bearing in mind that my speciality is not Windows Update problems, from what I can see in there, the problems definitely arise from communication difficulties between the Windows Update servers and your Windows Update client.

Have you been able to rip out WinPatrol?

I would suggest uninstalling Comodo completely (and using any 'cleaner' tool they may have), and switching the Windows Firewall on, then attempting updates.
If you're behind a NAT firewall, you could also try running updates with the Windows Firewall switched off (but no surfing!).

Tried your suggestion

I used Iobit Uninstaller to rid WinPatrol...my favorite uninstaller for past 3yrs ...
it also has forced uninstall, it's portable - no installation and it's free...

I released all my captive blocked files in Comodo then did a complete uninstall.

1. Totally lost my internet connection was without all day yesterday
Uninstalled the nic card re-installed over and over again...nothing

2. Something started in right away trying to install a virtual usb connection
but I still have unknown device disabled in device manager so it failed

3. Eventually did a restore and got my connection back

4. Left all remote and bluetooth files unblocked in the firewall and turned firewall off
repaired windows update and tried updates again but kept getting error 80070005
and was stripped of my admin rights again.

I'm kind of stuck...unless you know of an installation command where I can install
the microsoft software only from the OEM disk. I guess I could try uninstalling everything HP but there is all that crap that gets leftover in the registry that could cause more problems.

Q: When you do a system restore (rstrui.exe) do you have to activate your windows again? Could this cause the inability to access updates?

The only time it should be necessary to re-activate after a System Restore, is if the restore point you use is one where windows wasn't activated in the first place.

I can only think that your system is majorly hosed in some non-obvious manner, and a reformat/reinstall would be a good idea, starting with known-clean media.
You can download a Windows 7 SP1 retail disk (which will work with your OEM COA Key) from the links here - make sure that you get the right edition and language! -

Thx for the reply

The virtual usb connections must have gone thru anyway...the attached was all it was after
to take away install rights and stamp the desktop with "not genuine" funny thing is I did
attempt windows activation tool this AM and it said it was already installed.
I definitely lost activation when I a did restore and I guarantee you it was activated.

Downloaded ISO - will attempt to install tonight...you're awesome - Thx
I am really hoping this works.

Hi,

Not sure if this is too late, but you might find this useful for the clean install:

I tink I gonna cwry...not really!
Way past all that...have all HP drivers installed and about 100 Win updates. pretty much the most important elective and security software as well. I would still feel blessed if U tell me there is a bleedin' heart activation desk that can magically make my OEM code valid.

I can use this new info when I start working on my own PC...but if I had a wish right
now...it would be to keep what I have already done and not start over...

The link I recieved yesterday...went thru perfectly...easy as heck. Don't
understand what I just read about bypassing the UEFI in bios...I seem to
be functioning...am I just lucky?

Love the link thanks...
