    Hi,
    you should be replacing the dll file in Windows Activation Technologies as well,which requires special privileges
    or you can delete the folder Windows Activation Technologies

    I followed these steps and it worked for a few minutes then it logs me out. The big difference is when I get logged out, usually takes 5 minutes the first time, it doesn't go to the black screen I can log in normally again but it logs out in about 30 seconds every time after the first time. I don't know what else to do.

    The older file which resides in Windows Activation Technologies replaces "new"dll file which you replace in system32 folder,hence the system logs out.
    you need to unhide hidden files and operating system files,to know how refer the link below

    if you are unable to find the folder,search for the dll file in computer and replace all older versions with new one

    I've unhidden them and replaced the file in both Windows Activation Technologies/x86 and Windows Activation Technologies/x64 and it still signs me out. No black screen though, always a normal log in.

    after the system logs out,check the date created attribute of dll file if it was created in 2012,you may may have to search for dll in c drive and replace every old dll with new one

    All i did was replace the older files in 2 folder with new one and it worked

    Ok, I will give it a look through. I did notice that I don't sign out if I am in safe mode.
