I installed genuine Vista over 3 years ago. Activated the OS and passed every Genuine test put forth by Microsoft since then.
After several BSOD "error 0x0000001D" and reboots I get a explorer.exe error and following the restart of explorer.exe the "You may be a victim of software counterfeiting" warning pops up. It also states "Windows DreamScene is not working" I don't know what that is and don't think I ever used it.
At this point I'm afraid to reboot my computer for fear that I will lose everything because Microsoft will disable everything when it reboots.
There's no doubt in my mind the software is genuine, I installed it and activated it. Why did this happen and is there anything I can do to resolve the problem, without losing all the software installed.
This computer has been used daily for nearly 4 years and other then getting a little long in the tooth until this glitch worked reasonably well.
Can anyone tell me:
1. What will happen when I reboot?
2. If it reboots in Reduced Functionality Mode what can I do to correct this?
3. Any idea what has happened, because the problem is not bogus sofware?
4. Can I resolve this error?
Thanks for you help...
