    Error 0x80070002 - Windows 7 cannot check for updates

    Unfortunately, I cannot update my Win7x64. I am getting 0x80070002. I have tried to auto-repair and dozens of other things. I only now stumbled over this dedicated forum. Please see below my MGA Diagnostic. Any idea hugely appreciated. Thanks!!!

    Your installation is counterfeit.
    You have an Acer OEM_SLP Key and SLIC table - but the motherboard is a retail one. The whole thing is held together by a hacker's Activation Exploit.

    You need to reformat and reinstall using genuine media and Key.

    Oh, this is very unfortunate. I got a custom built from a vendor who provided me a complete package-deal. I already had some concerns as I am living in China and was curious whether these vendors actually have access to proper Windows licenses. Ultimately, I actually paid for this so called license.

    Is there any other way than reformatting? Any chance to buy a proper key online? Any chance to update to Windows 8.0 or 8.1 to solve this when buying a proper license key?

    I don't want to format and redo everything. Also not sure whether I can even buy a proper Windows version here in China...

    China is a bit of a nightmare when it comes to licensing - I think there are more fakes than genuine licenses out there! Yours is a fairly typical example. For the future, always check for a COA sticker,(or if from a large manufacturer, the Windows 8 tamper-proof sticker from now on) How to Tell ? Hardware

    The problem with systems activated using an Activation Exploit (Loader) is that it's impossible to guarantee the integrity of the system, as many such come laden with malware embedded, and the hack is effectively a rootkit interposing itself between OS and BIOS, so it may be almost impossible to ensure the system is clean.
    That's why we always recommend a reformat/reinstall in such cases.

    Genuine Win7 licenses are getting rare everywhere nowadays, since MS effectively stopped selling them a year ago.

    You can try purchasing a GGOK - but be aware that while it's a Retail license, it's restricted to use only on the affected machine, and cannot be transferred or put on a new motherboard.

    PLease attempt validation at - it may pass because of the hack, but the hack may also be discovered, and if so, you'll be offered the kit.

    Thanks, this is helpful. Will below allow me to "legalize" my Win7 through GGOK? And by doing so will it allow to "repair" my Windows to allow online updates?

    Would it be easier/cheaper for me to "just" buy a Windows 8.1, which retail quite cheap these days. And then I install it on-top of my Windows 7? Would this work?

    Would both options allow me to get rid of potential malware? Any chance to get rid of the exploit?

    And last but not least - I will eventually buy a new computer. Would like to have a Chinese vendors do it for me rather than assembling all the components myself. How could I make sure to have a genuine copy of Win7 or Win8.1?

    Unfortunately, it failed given me error code "Update installation failed. Error information: 0x80072EE2". Any idea?

    0x80072EE2 errors are usually transient - they are networking errors possibly because of a bad connection, or a firewall or proxy setting.
    In this case it could be a function of the hack
    Let's have a bit of a closer look at the system....
    Follow the instructions here to create the SF BSOD file - but just upload the file here, and I'll take a look and see if there's anything obvious that needs attention.

    Can I send it to you by email? Not sure what I am disclosing about my system when I am posting it openly in this forum?

    There's nothing confidential in the SF BSOD files - it's merely a collection of logs and error data.
    You can always delete it once I've got it :)
