WINDOWS NOT GENUINE after installing Windows updates

Anybody here who knows the solution to this error message : "Windows not genuine" after installing updates from Microsoft, I already activated my copy of Windows 7 five months ago, everything is doing fine until I downloaded the automatic updates from Microsoft last night, I called MS customer service and they validated my Product Key and they said its a valid upgrade PK, tried everything like WGA diagnostic tool, changing to a new product key, rearming, clean rebooting, safe mode, phone activation, reinstalling the tokens, EVERYTHING....I even called the MS technical support, no solution yet and they even escalated my case to their Research Department. Please, anyone who might have an idea. It will be greatly appreciated.....
