I am having the "Windows 7 not genuine" issue plus several other issues that all started when I logged on today. My system was also saying "Windows Explorer is restarting" about every 5 seconds until I disabled all Non-Microsoft shell extensions. Now I have the "not genuine" error and several devices not working (including NIC). I have ran various malware programs, sfc /scannow (couldn't repair), chkdsk /r, and everything else I could think of. I need help in a bad way. Thanks!

FWIW, I have used a reg cleaner trying to correct this problem, but I exported the registry keys (hopefully) prior to running the cleaner software. Thanks

Please UNDO anything that the registry cleaner did, and UNINSTALL it!
There is no such thing as a 'good' registry cleaner - they are all dangerous, and WILL sooner or later trash your machine.

Are you running with UAC disabled?
Did you run that set of commands from an ELEVATED Command prompt? - if not, please do so.

That is the 1st time I've ever let an app automatically change the reg. Never have trusted them. I did run the commands from elevated cmd prompt. FYI, I just noticed a new message in the notification area that said windows had changed & needed to be reinstalled. Do I restore the registry in Safe mode? When I backed it up, I exported (within the registry editor) each registry folder to the hard drive & removable usb drive. Thanks again for your help!!!

You're probably best using System Restore (restoring to a date prior to the registry changes), unless the 'cleaner' has a backup/restore system.

Don't worry about the reinstallation notice - we can almost always avoid this.

Thanks. I entered System Restore from "Normal" mode and selected a restore point prior to running Ccleaner. Like my prior attempts (from every possible mode) I get an error when the system comes back up that Restore did not complete successfully. It failed while scanning the file system on C:\ and suggested chkdsk /r ...which I have done several times (also from Normal Mode & Safe Mode). I have tried multiple restore points. Thanks again!

Ccleaner is one of the less likely to cause problems - just don't use the registry cleaner part of it in future, please

OK - let's work on the basis that what we've seen is 'real' in your report....

I've uploaded a file - - to my SkyDrive at Noel's SkyDrive

Pleasedownload and save it to your desktop.

Right-clickon the saved file and select Extract all...

Saveit to the default location

Thisshould create a file hku20.reg

right-clickon the file, and select Merge

Acceptthe warnings, - you should then get a 'Success' message.

Closeall windows, and reboot.

Runanother MGADiag report, and post the results.

I get error accessing the registry in Normal & Safe mode. I am not a "Windows Guru" by any means, but I have worked as a small town hardware tech for about 15 years. If there's anything that I can try without doing a clean install...I'm game. I have my other business files on this (Real Estate) which includes some proprietary software that will cost $$$ to reinstall--not to mention days of work. I really appreciate all of your help here!!!
