    Dear boys and girls of MDL,

    This morning my computer suddenly began giving me the annoying message that my W7 wasn't genuine, and it keeps changing my theme back to that ugly black one. I've had the message that my W7 wasn't genuine in the bottom right corner for a long long time, but it only started doing this this morning when it restarted itself due to what I suspect was a Windows update.

    I've been trying to figure out how to solve this for some hours now, and I've been using Daz's Windows Loader. I've uninstalled first in case I had any previous installs, as I can vaguely remember me using his loader before to activate my copy.

    I've then reinstalled his loader the regular way, the detail line told me v2.1, which is good, but it still wasn't legitimate, so I tried validating it online through Internet Explorer, I again got told I might've been the victim of a pirated copy.

    I then uninstalled and reinstalled with disable type 4 memory, again, not genuine, also tried validating online and it told me I already had the update installed?(not sure if that's supposed to happen)

    I then uninstalled again and reinstalled with Legacy mode on, it didn't give me v2.1, and it didn't work, tried to validate online, and again told me I had the update already installed.

    I then again uninstalled and reinstalled without anything on, now it has v2.1 in the detail line again, but it still tells me my copy is not genuine, and when validating online it still tells me I have the update already installed.

    Now I'm at this point where I'm asking for help on the forums.

    Here's my computer specs:
    AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Processor ~2.8GHz
    4GB RAM
    GA-880GA-UD3H Gigabyte motherboard
    Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit build 7601

    Not sure what other spec you'd need, so ask away.

    Here's that MGADIAG you always seem to ask for (never heard of it):

    I'm really at a loss here, I have no idea what's left to do and here I am asking for your help.
    In case I have to do a fresh W7 install, is there some kind of option to repair all the W7 files without actually having to reinstall every single thing on my computer?

    Thanks in advance,


    PS. It's all in Dutch as my operating system is in Dutch and I'm Dutch so if that's a problem, please tell me how to get the data in English and I'll gladly post it for you.

    That's actually the one I used. It's also in the changelog of the folder I have with the files.

    Thanks for the suggestion though :)

    How long is "for a long long time"? If it was 30 days you likely were never activated. Are you getting any other messages? What update do you think tanked your system?

    Do you have a restore point or a system image you can use to return to a time when you were genuine?

    I haven't done a clean W7 install since I got the computer which was I think over a year ago, and I didn't have it at that time, but somewhere along the way to now it popped up and never went away, I'd day it's been there for a lot longer than 30 days.

    I'm not getting any other messages, just occasionally a balloon pops up saying my W7 isn't genuine, and when I restart my PC it tells me it's not genuine and it wants to drag me through a whole process.

    I don't think I've ever made a restore point or system image.

    I'm not sure which update tanked my system, as I said in the OP, my computer restarted itself last night (I almost never turn my PC off, but my pc restarts itself once in a while, I suppose from updates) and when I woke up in the morning I logged into my account and it told me my copy was not genuine and all. So I suppose something happened last night, but I have no clue on how I'd go about finding that out.

    Thanks for the help so far!

    i use bios mod.. and if it whenever does it to me (i just did updates and no warning here) i run slmgr.vbs -rearm to make it trial again. then install loader and reboot. ( in my case loader doesnt do loader. just cert and key since slic 2.1 is in bios detected)

    Hi Folks

    Just thought I'd mention your not alone.
    I'm having the same problems as Scylin. Noticed my HP Evo 510 Sff running Windows 7 Ultimate build 7601 had restarted last night after some sort of update.

    I had been running this successfully with Daz v 2.2.1 loader until now.

    Reinstalled with disable type 4 memory, again, not genuine, reinstalled with Legacy mode on, still not genuine

    Attempted system restore to point before last nights update and it became genuine again for about 4 mins and the 'This is not genuine' prompt came back.

    Still hunting for a solution.....

    I think M$ is finally working on Loader activated systems...

    If it is the case, I'm sure, they can't do anything with the loader activated systems. :worthy:

    How you could be so sure that they cant detect loader with update?

    Similar thread

    @Scylin & Ballbag

    Do this :
    1. Uninstall loader
    2. Now you have to rearm your Windows. For this, click on Start and search "cmd".
    3. Right Click on "cmd" main file and select "Run as Administrator".
    4.Now click "Yes" when a pop up window comes.
    5. Type "slmgr -rearm" without quotes any spelling mistakes.
    6. Hit Enter. A message window will pop up with a message of 'Command completed successfully'
    7. Now reboot your system.
    Still you will see the message "Your copy of Windows is not genuine".
    8. Now run Loader software. That's it!

    Now reboot your system.

    Hope this will work.

    Thanks a lot! This worked!

    Just a note though, my W7 was on trial version after I uninstalled and entered the CMD command, but then I ran the loader and it was certified.

    Thanks again!

    I don't think it's on any site... or M$ Associates have leaked it on a site.. however, being an associate myself, I can say that YES they do have the idea or should I say "fixing" the exploit now also on the boot manager where Loader is making its magic... prolly why people are getting that their copy is not genuine when using Loader...

    It has something to do with WGA Program of M$... through that, they can now check if an "Activation Exploit" is being used on the system...

    It's hard to detect if installed correctly. Otoh, everytime somebody screws up a loader installation, they blame it on some MS update, claiming that MS can now detect it. These rumors have been flying around forever.

    100% bull.

    The rumours are all false. The loaders working perfectly fine and they're not touching WAT for Windows 7.

    Every so often activation can have a hiccup even on legit OEM systems. For them with the loader installed it's often caused by the user not shutting down correctly and then they'll allow the system to do start-up repair. When the system runs start-up repair a new boot sector is written which disables the loader and you can end up with "bad" cached status codes for activation. Flush the bad status codes and reinstall the loader and you'll be genuine again.

    This should work:

    WAT Fix may also help in some cases.

    And of course, if your installation media isn't official or has been modified in any way then that's probably the reason you're not genuine.

    We often see people saying that the computer rebooted in the middle of the night, and now it is non-genuine. Are there any updates that overwrite the boot sector, thus disabling the loader? I suspect not.
