Win 7 activation

I have deployed 400 computers with Windows 7, and activated them with the OEm key supplied from HP.  That was 6 months ago and everything was fine.  Now I am geting random PC's popping up say I am not running genuine microsoft.  I spent more than 4 hours on the phone with Microsoft, before they  told me to reinstall and reactivate.  Would there be a chance the activation that needs to happen every 90 days is being blocked by the firewall.  Any help would be great.  I have aobut 15 pc's with this issue.

Watch Question

Do all the firewalls have the same settings?  If 15 aren't able to connect, but 385 are, and they're all spread out over your network (where activated computers are on the same subnet as non-activated ones), then it shouldn't be a firewall issue.

This happens to me on certain computers that I reinstall Windows on as well.  Some need to be manually activated while some do not.  

If you can flash these problem computers with an image of an activated computer, it should be fine.

I should not think so - certainly not with a commercial firewall product.

Have you contacted HP? I have not seen this with any Lenovo machines activated with the OEM key.

Even after doing the slui.exe 4 and using the phone system the next day the issue comes back again.  I have been able to swap hard drives with a same model, this has required a new activation be made and that has resolved some of them

First key...if you google it says its not a legal copy
*****-*****-788W3-H689G-6P6GT
Second key looks like a new crack...the rearm status is 2 and activation files are been tampered.
these keys might be blacklisted by microsoft..you need to contact hp or ms to get genuine key.

Before updating the new key..do a clean install of windows 7 using genuine windows disc and then update the key.

I hardly expect HP would supply illegal OEM keys. How does that happen ?

Rossabout - Have you contacted HP as asked earlier?  Please confirm.

.... Thinkpads_User
To all of you who offered suggestions thank you.  Here is the solution from microsoft
Add Local Service Account and provide full access to the following

"" C:\Windows\System32\winevt ""

Add Network Service Account and provide full access to the following


"" C:\Windows\System32\Msdtc""

""C:\Windows\DtcInstall.log ""

Ded9,  the keys used are 100% legal, it is one of many that HP has used on there stickers, secondly FYI, rearm is used when a sysprep is run, it is not a crack.  We have a custom image that started on a real machine, sysprep and captured, then additional software added, syspred and captured again.  This process can be done 5 times.

Other issues because of this rights issue
Event viewer would not run
Windows Event log service would not start
dcomcnfg was showing the computer as offline
Windows updates would not install

after changing the 2 folders and 1 file rights, rebooted and reran MGADiag.exe and validiation was 0
