Solved How use new key for Win 7 validation

Specs: Windows 7
My computer guru fixed my CPU when it had malware, now it keeps saying this version of Windows is not genuine. He gave me a new key, but it won't accept it. When I run the Microsoft Genuine Advantage diagnostic tool, under licensing tab is shows: Input error: can not find script file"C:\windows\system32slmgr.vbs" My system is 64 bit system--is the missing script file the problem?

✔ Best Answer
Go back to your "Guru" and have them fix the issue.

Did you have Windows 7 64 bit installed before the malware?

Did your computer come with Windows 7 pre-installed? If so, try using the key that is on the case.

So then you are still able to enter Windows?

Is there a watermark in the bottom left of the screen when you're on your desktop above the task bar time indicator?

saying something like:

Windows 7
Build 7601
This copy of Windows is not genuine

If so maby you're tech guru disabled the windows service which checks your Windows activation code.

The service is called: Windows Activation Technologies-service

You can reactivate/restart this service with services/services.msc, alternatively with msconfig --> services

Set the service's Startup-type to automatic.

Simple solutions are often the best
