Windows 7: windows 7 not genuine after update KB971033

14 Jul 2014   #11

win 7 pro x64

Thanks. I have my doubts, though, that once installed, KB971033 can actually be uninstalled via the UI. That would make it awfully easy to defeat. However, I am tempted to do just that, just to have one less thing to worry about.

Note that although it seems like one has 100 days, unless you do something manually to validate before you know you will have 10 days of downtime, you might just be unlucky enough for the validator to want to run the first day of downtime, and fail every day after that for 10 days. Also, good luck if you happen to end up with no internet for 10 days at the wrong time, say in the unlikely event of a hurricane. Even a thunderstorm can do that.

KB971033 CAN definitely be uninstalled from the Installed Updates listing.
If it fails for any reason, open an Elevated Command Prompt, and run the following command...

wusa /uninstall /kb:971033

The 'penalties' of having a system which is unable to validate are fairly minor (especially compared to earlier versions of Windows - you are not locked out of the system at all. You simply lose access to certain functionality (non-security updates and a pretty background are the most obvious).

It will not help in 99% of cases, since most machines use the OEM master Key, rather than the machine's own Key.
