Thank you for your reply..

As far as I can recall I have not used any Norton software on this PC.

Here are the results of the queries you asked me to run:

I ran it more than once and each time there failed to be any response to the last of the four queries.

Thanks again for your help and your time.

Here's the root cause - it's typical of a post-Norton screwup - but I've seen ASC cause it before as well.

ConfigFlags REG_DWORD 0x401

Open Regedit and navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root\LEGACY_SPLDR Key

Export it to a reg file for safety!
Right-click on the key name, and Select Permissions,
Click on Advanced, then the Owner tab
Make sure that Administrators is the owner, and put a tick in the 'Replace owner...' box at the bottom
Click OK once
add Administrators to the 'Groups or Usernames' list, and give them Full permissions
Now move to the 0000 subkey
Double-click on the ConfigFlags entry
Change the data value to 400 (make sure that the radio-button is in 'Hexadecimal') and click OK
Exit Regedit, and reboot twice

Thank you again Noel for your help. Having to date always shied away from making changes to the registry I have been a little nervous about proceeding without being sure of all the steps I need to take.

I followed your recipe so far but was intending to write seeking some reassurance before proceeding further, so I therefore decided to take screenshots of the various boxes as I moved through them.

I first saved the reg key to a reg file.

Screenshot 1


Then I right-clicked on Legacy SPLDR and selected Permissions. This gave me
Screenshot 2


Then clicked on Advanced, which gave me this:

Screenshot 3


Then I clicked on the Owner tab. This gave me this:

Screenshot 4


Adminstrators is the owner, so I ticked "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" at the bottom and clicked OK. Then nothing happened.

I think it did when I first worked my way through the routine but it was at this point that I became unsure of how to proceed, and having decided to retrace to check the steps, I inadvertently clicked on "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" from the previous screen, and found I could not get any further after I moved to the Owner tab, ticked "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects". and then OK.

I was and still am puzzled by the fact that in the "Permissions for Legacy SPLDR" box (screenshot 2), some of the tick boxes for Allow or Deny are preticked and greyed out. This applies for whichever of the group or user names is highlighted, including Administrators

Yesterday, I was also unclear where to find the 0000 subkey. However after sleeping on it, this morning it dawned on me that to get to that subkey, I needed to expand the entry for Legacy SPLDR in the registry editor screen shown in the first screenshot above. Then the rest of your routine became clear, and I completed it, I think, successfully. Anyhow I reran MGADiag.exe and now append the resulting diagnostic report.

'EVERYONE' should NEVER have permissions granted in the registry!
It's a guaranteed backdoor to malware and other nasties!
Where on earth did that setting come from?

MGADiag is now happy, at least, and you should o longer be seeing non-genuine notifications.

Well, Noel. Windows Update seems to be working OK now, and the Windows Not Genuine message has gone, thank heavens, so I can only say how immensely grateful I am to you for holding my hand on this and seemingly resolving the issue. However, I'll leave it a couple of days before marking the thread as solved, just in case any gremlins emerge.

I have no idea where the Everyone permissions came from. I don't suppose I could ask you to tell me how to get rid of them?

You could, and I will - but I have to go out now, so it's likely to be tomorrow (and we need to check a few other details as well)

Glad everything is back on an even keel now!

Good work men, it seem like things are getting fixed.

Things like permission to Everyone in registry could of been done by IOBits A.S.C.
No one really know all the things that program does. Removing such programs does not repair all the damage they have done.
