Long story  but here goes. Friday all was good when I left the office. Monday I couldn't access e-mail or the internet, and after attempting several things I decided to restore to an earlier time. First was 1/31/14 and nothing changed then I tried 1/27/14 and then upon restart Error code 0x80040154 popped up and I couldn't do anything using the control panel, so I moved to another computer to be a productive employee. Came back today and it started giving me windows is not genuine. Is there any hope for me, realy don't want to reinstall windows. I have attached the computer specs in txt format

Why...was the O/S reinstalled in January?  What was wrong with the system then?

Since you say this a work computer, have you contacted and advised your Domain Administrator, Business Manager, or IT Department?

In most work environments, the IT staff implement specific policies and procedures for the use of computer equipment and related resources. In fact, many companies will require you to read those policies and sign a statement of understanding. These official procedures are designed and implemented to provide security and certain restrictions to protect the network. This allows all users to safely use business resources with minimum risk of malware infection, illegal software, and exposure to inappropriate Internet sites or other prohibited activity.

A business/government IT Department generally has established procedures in place to deal with issues on client machines on the network. As such, they may not approve of employees seeking help at an online forum or outside the business office as doing so could interfere or cause additional problems.

@ Louis, Thanks for your reply. My previous hard drive crashed and no files could be salvaged so I had a new one installed by the company who supplied the computer.

 

@ B Janitor, Thanks for your reply. We are a very small company and do not have an IT department. We generally rely on the company that supplies our computers for any problems that arrise and they haven't seen this happening before, therefore I am seeking assistance via this forum. Another employee used this site, albeit a slow process, with great success. Fortunately I am able to work on another computer to get my work accomplished.

Taken at face value, the 0xc00f057 error...is self- explanatory, IMO.  My suggestion for resolution would be to do a telephonic activation.

 

The 0x80040154 error seems to relate to efforts to install/use Microsoft Fixit or Windows Update or some other MS application.  Did you attempt such?

 

Louis

I understand and that's not a problem but I always ask first. There are many folks who try to circumvent their employers work policies by hiding computer problems and seeking help elsewhere in order to avoid personal responsibility. As such, I'm sure you can appreciate I was looking out for the IT folks as well by checking.

Our forums are set up to help the home computer user deal with issues and questions relating to personal computers. Many helpers are not familiar with Servers and enterprise networks so there are some enterprise issues we may not be able to help with satisfactorily but we try.

How does your organization roll out updates? Are they done automatically over the network?

If not, is each user supposed to update their client computers when advised by network communication or Windows update notification?

Louis, It was through the control panel, restore to an earlier time, and once i get the 0x80040154 resolved I will try to do the telephonic reactivation.

 

Janitor, we usually let the users update either automatically or manually when the notice is received.
