    I had that.

    Couldn't fix it.

    Gave up.

    It seems to be fairly common, and some of us think it's probably a glitch in the activation process.

    Apparently it SOMETIMES rectifies itself. Mine did not.


    EDIT: - Just thinking, my (very early) Win 7 Ult build would sometimes also do something similar, but
    a re-boot would usually fix it. No such luck now with 8, tho...

    If you continue having problems, post a LicensingDiag report.
    Please open an Elevated Command Prompt window (in Start, type 'Command' - a Command Prompt icon will appear, right-click on it, and select Run as Administrator)
    At the Prompt, type

    Licensingdiag.exe -report %userprofile%\desktop\report.txt -log %userprofile%\desktop\repfiles.cab

    (note the spaces!)
    two files will be put on your desktop -
    open the 'report.txt' file in Notepad, and copy/paste the results to your response - you can ignore the repfiles.cab file for the moment, as it's only backup data

    The system is complaining that something has tampered with the Trusted Store (0xC004FE00)- and a system file has been modified in some way (C:\Windows\system32\slwga.dll)

    I would expect an SFC or System Restore to work.
    Try the System Restore first - back to a time when it was showing as genuine.
    then post another LicensingDiag report

    Please follow my instructions rather than going off at a tangent.
    You now have TWO tampered files, and the Key in use is now a Vlome License Key which requires your own activation server for activation purposes.
    You cannot hack around like that and expect things to keep working!
