Hello Brain Trust,

My sites are getting more frequent errors pertaining to the 8007000D Data is Invalid, windows not Genuine. We activate the KMS using VAMT 3.1. What I have tried thus far is as follows;

-MS Fix It 50485.
-Slmgr /rearm (after resetting the reg key to 1 to allow another rearm, it says successful but does not resolve)
-Side by side comparison of the File path suggested to be the cause of error HKLM.../Enum/ Root between an activated workstation and the not genuine machine. Due to machines varying in installed applications, I was unable to determine which keys were incorrectly modified.
- We use a version of encryption provided by Credent and it has been known to cause problems in peculiar ways, I've done what is known as "Unlocking" the drive to see if that would allow the Fix it to properly modify the registry but that did not suffice. I can also try to completely uninstall if anyone feels that would be helpful.
- I have run Slmgr /dlv but that only told me of the error code.

All in all, I have searched far and wide in various forums but have not found anything that could possibly point me in a legitimate direction for a solution. If anyone has any suggestions they are all welcome because I just don't think Re-imaging is the best course of action due to the increased frequency of issues.
