Are you puzzled with the “Windows is not genuine” message displayed with an error code of 0x80070005 on your Windows 7 based PC? It’s a severe setback that can leave you pondering as what ‘wrong has happened’. The message strikes the head as it flashes immediately after Windows logon. However, it won’t turn head around when you know that running a counterfeit copy of Windows. In that case, you should go for a valid Windows license either online or through some authorized retail partners. Simultaneously, under the System Properties: (Control Panel / System and Security / System) you can come up with message saying “You must activate today. Activate Windows now”. If you try to use slmgr.vbs /dlv to view the licensing status, you may confront the message: “0x80070005 Access denied: the requested action requires elevated privileges”.
Though, applications keep on running in a hassle-free manner, but its ridiculous to be blamed for using rogue product when you are not doing so. To fix computer issues, you need to understand the cause first. One of the probable cause is lack of permissions in the registry key HKU\S-1-5-20. The Network Service account must have full control and read permissions over that registry key. It could be a resultant of applying a Plug and Play Group Policy object (GPO). Registry values S-1-5-18, S-1-5-19 and S-1-5-20 can be found missing from the key HKLM\software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Profilelist. To resolve it you can either disable the policy setting or edit the permissions to provide the Licensing Service the required permissions. You can disable the policy settings through “rsop.msc” command. Navigate to the location “Computer Configuration / Policies / Windows Settings /Security Settings / System Services /” or can edit the Group Policy.
