Hi

The server was running fine for many months but now suddenly it shows that the OS is not genuine anymore. The Software Protection service is not running. And I can not start it anymore

It is in German but it basically says: Cannot start Software Protection because The system cannot find the file specified.

I suspect it has something to do with wrong permissions / acl on C:\Windows\System32
