Re: Windows is not genuine

Hi

First time ever I see this message on my desktop:

Quote:
This copy of Windows is not genuine

My Windows 7 (64bit) is 100% genuine.

Can this be a virus?

Thanks

Hi GMS

Click on the button, and in the Search box, type SERVICES.MSC
and hit the [Enter] key click Yes on UAC window
Look in the listing of services for
Software Protection - (sppsvc)
and
SPP Notification Service - (sppnotify)

right-click on each, and select Properties -
look in the Startup type
sppsvc should be set to Automatic (Delayed start)
sppnotify should be set to Manual.


Restart PC and upload new MGAdiag log

It happens when some of the activation files get messed up. Don't mark this thread as solved just yet . Wait a few days then mark it as solved .
