Windows 7: Another Win 7 Pro validation issue 0x8004fe21...

18 Jan 2013   #11

Windows 7 Professional 64 bits

Anyway, no more errors, and now two boots since WindowsActivationUpdate.exe; it could have fixed something?
I'll left the PC on the weekend at my office, to test and remotely access some files.
If no more errors - hope so - solved; if has, I'll follow your directions.
Thanks for all, have a nice weekend!

I would agree with Noel - the cause is more likely to be Norton. If the problem persists, remove Norton using Noel's suggestion and replace it with MSE.
