Hi there,

I have windows 7 64 bit operating system and I have been running it since new with a language patch called 'vistalizator', which works very well, until it comes to downloading updates for windows 7. For some time now I kept getting the message that 'You are not running genuine windows' which I kept ignoring until I got this program today which deleted the windows activation software and was supposed to allow me to catch up on all the updates that I am missing.

So when I tried to update windows 7 by clicking on 'start', then 'all programs' then 'windows update', when the page comes up, it looks like it is corrupted and I can't update anything. What can I do to allow me to do the updates for windows 7?

You might try 'Fix it' http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

Hi there!

Thanks for the tip. I downloaded the 'fix it' from Microsoft but sadly it didn't do anything. Afterwards, I noticed at the start the following info:

'System Tip - This article applies to a different version of Windows than the one you are using. Content in this article may not be relevant to you.Visit the Windows 7 Solution Center'

I checked below under 'applies to' and Windows 7 isn't on there.

Any other help is greatly appreciated...!

Have you tried doing a system restore? I would suggest that and try updating your computer that way. Otherwise, if you have the disks, you should also try a clean install.

Thanks again for your help. Sadly I don't have the disks since it is an OEM which was already loaded up onto the hard drive. I guess I will have to a complete re-install which means I will have to move all my data to another drive.

See if a startup repair (run 3 times) will work http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/681-startup-repair.html
