Win7 MAK license reporting Genuine Adv failure

Hi, all!  Machine in question is Windows 7 Professional, latest patches (but not SP1).  Install base is approximately 40 machines with same MAK license key as the machine in question.

On this particular box, Windows is intermittently reporting a Microsoft Genuine Advantage error (nothing to capture).  The original license key was verified as valid.  I have since installed a different, known-valid license key.  The error is still popping up intermittently, but getting more frequent (couple times a week).  This machine was in service for 8 months with no issue before the Genuine Advantage error started popping up.  Tested the license with the MS Genuine Advantage test page (http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/diag) and all test passed.  Ran the MGADiag tool and the results are posted below; all is valid.

Suggestions?  Cannot wipe machine.  Thanks!

Whats the output of cscript %SystemRoot%\system32\slmgr.vbs /dli
SteveAtLSCAuthor Commented:
I have a second machine that started doing the same thing, so I installed a new key, and it's still popping up with the "not running Genuine" message, too...  Output of SLMGR/VBS /DLI follows:

"Name: Windows(R) 7, Professional edition
Description: Windows Operating System - Windows(R) 7, VOLUME_MAK channel
Partial Product Key: X87DY
License Status: Licensed"

Could you run the following commands on cmd please (Run as Administrator).

Step1: slmgr /upk  This command will remove your existing key)
Step2: slmgr /cpky   - this removes the product key from the registry
Step2: slmgr /ipk <product key>  (This command will install your new MAK key)
Step3: slmgr /ato <activation ID>   - this will activate the new product key

Optional commands:
slmgr /dlv   - this helps you find the activation ID for the current activation; run this with the old retail or OEM key installed
slmgr /dlv   - this will show you the new activation ID for the newly installed product key

teomcam, thanks for replying!

I went ahead and re-entered the steps you recommended above (I didn't use the /upk and /cpky before) on one of the machines, and I'll wait to see if that resolves the problem.

SteveAtLSCAuthor Commented:
It seems that removing the old key from the registry makes a difference!  Both machines are now running once again without the popup!

Thanks again!
