Windows 7: Windows 7 suddenly says not genuine, updates not working

16 Sep 2013   #11

Windows 7 64bit

I performed the steps mentioned and updates would not work still. I still had the problems with MS Search and Capi2.
However, I found a post on the internet with a different link to the same driver you sent me...different date.
It installed correctly and seems to have corrected the issue. Updates are working and I was able to reinstall the KB for WGA that had failed previously. are, without doubt, a gem to the Windows 7 community.
Thank you so much!

Interesting - given the age of your motherboard I wouldn't have expected that version to work.
Thanks for letting us know!

Good luck.
