PLease start a new thread, or everyone gets confused.

To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
(download and save to desktop - )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
- **in your own thread**, please
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quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
How to Tell

In yur case, we need to know also the following:
1) Did you purchase an Upgrade or Full Retail copy of Windows 7?
2) When you reinstalled, did you first reinstall the Vista from a Recovery partition?
3) What Anti-virus is currently installed - and has this changed since the reinstall?

Then we legitly bought Windows 7 from either Best Buy or else Comp. USA....can't quite remember. Kind of tired of my computer not working, and I really need it to work properly due to school. I know I probably should have started my own thread, but, I didn't want to upset anyone by posting it then having someone say that there's already someone posting who has the same exact problem. Any help would be appreciated!
Nope, it's still going on. I don't know how to solve this problem. Currently, I'm just using my problematic netbook as wi-fi router to my other devices. I'm not using it anymore, it just ended up like a decoration on my table. I'm still figuring out on what to do coz somebody told me to reset to factory setting but I don't know how to do it. I'm tired and kinda hopeless in this case. I'm still waiting for solutions.
