Howdy - came across a problem that I can't seem to resolve.  
 
I'm receiving a message saying my win7 install is not runnning authentic windows despite having OEM install from a few years ago and it always being fine. I think I was recently hacked by malware and have run malwarebytes and installed free trial of Mcafee because windows security essentials wouldn't update and then ran Mcafee and Malwarebytes.  It now says everything is clean (malwarebytes cleaned 32 items and Mcafee cleaned some too).
 
Uninstalled Mcafee shortly after but I couldn't run windows update and MS security essentials won't update so have reinstalled Mcafee. I have manually re-entered the OEM key but on the next reboot still get "windows not running authentic windows" pop up.  I have tried running windows legitcheck.hta but get error which says "legitcheck.hta is not a valid win32 application" which i can sort of understand because i am running win7 64 bit home professional
 
Any ideas other than fresh install of win 7?  I have attached OTL logs below.  
 
Many thanks in advance =)

Hello alexstrazza,

 

Welcome to Geekstogo.

 

I think you need to talk to microsoft.

Click Start > All Programs > Accessories >  Command Prompt and type slui.exe 4 (note the space... it should be there) and hit Enter.

Select an activation centre near you, call, speak with a real person and explain what happened.

Come back and tell me how your got on. I cannot help you further until the machine is validated.

I have verified it is legit using the oem sticker on the case with slui.exe 3. I then try and run windows update and it says I need to restart. When I restart it changes back and says it is not an authentic again and won't load windows update.  Just tried slui.exe 4 and same results...

So - here's how it works for anyone in Australia.  There are 4 numbers to call when you select slui.exe 4. 2  Toll free and 2 toll.  I tried the first toll free initially 1800 642 008.   This gives you an automated service to quote numbers back and authenticate your product.  Worked as stated above.  Authenticated but then when I tried to run windows update it failed. So I  just tried the second number - the other toll free number.  Spoke to support who ran me through the standard troubleshooting despite my specific post above being repeated many times.  They validated the key twice but still had the problems I did.  To their credit when they tried to sell me paid support and I reiterated the issue with conviction they tried a screenshare.  They could not fix it and tried much of what I had already tried then said they will escalate and call me back tomorrow.  I will provide further updates as they occur. To be continued...

MS second level support called back today (see above).  Valid product key is not the issue.  As mentioned above it has worked for years on OEM install and I have since self validated and MS have validated but it doesn't stick after restart.  MS second level support are now trying a repair but it seems to have failed and they have been on for over 3 hours and have left for the day but said they will try back tomorrow.  The tech said there had been corruption and downloaded IOS to repair.  Just worried I didn't have something really nasty on there that changed the slui.exe 4 numbers and I have now given my pc over to some scammer by giving full control and password via support.me. The number they called me back on although slightly before the agreed time seems to have been microsoft in Redmond main number but I understand many scammers change the caller id.  I wrote an email to the tech to get him to prove he was legit and got a reply from what seemed to be a proper microsoft address. Will post the details below - wait and see I guess

Okay let's do this:

 

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool from here and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

  • Right click to run as administrator. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will produce a log called (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run from.
  • Please copy and paste log back here.
  • The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please also paste that into your reply.

After that

 

Please run the MGA Diagnostic Tool and post back the report it produces:

  • Download MGADiag to your desktop.
  • Double-click on MGADiag.exe to launch the program
  • Click "Continue"
  • Ensure that the "Windows" tab is selected (it should be by default).
  • Click the "Copy" button to copy the MGA Diagnostic Report to the Windows clipboard.
  • Paste the MGA Diagnostic Report back here in your next reply.

So when you return please post

FRST.txt

Addition.txt

MGA report
