I am running Windows Vista Home Premium (32bit) with SP2 and 4gigs of ram. I have several errors that I believe are linked to one main cause. My svchost keeps crashing (using Soluto which notifies me), I can't use Windows Update, it tells me I need to update Windows Update and it fails to do so Code 80070426.

My copy of Vista is valid and used to be activated, but now when I go to Control Panel->System it says it is not activated. I get error code 0x80070426 with that. I followed some forums about the tokens.dat file, but I couldn't find it under the folder structure they said it should be in, yet I did find it under a different folder. Not sure if I need to rename or more or restructure my folders. While it is not registered I don't seem to have lost any functionality other than I can no longer update Vista (or install Microsoft Security Essentials).

I have ran some Microsoft Fix It's related to the error codes and so far nothing has resolved the issue. Not sure if it's related, but my wallpaper (Windows one) disappears and goes to black until I go back and set it again.

Any help would be much appreciated. If you need log files or more information please let me know.

Ok, post is good.
Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

The current wait time is 1 - 2 days and ALL logs are answered.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
