Windows 7: Windows 7 popup not genuine, error 0x8004fe22

26 Nov 2015   #21

Win 7 Professional x64

Hi Noel, I have not changed/updated AV or anti-malware software.
For now I haven't seen the pop up again.
But my guess is there is something corrupt with my Win 7 installation, as some programs are showing up with problems.

If I'd use the same DVD to setup Win 7 again, could I use your file in case I get this popup again or would I need a new customized one? Thanks!

There are any number of different reasons for a failed MGA test - each case should be examined on its own merit with a view to a specific cause/cure.
