Back to Top

Immediately after you log on, you see the following Windows Activation window:

  • Windows is not genuine
    Your computer might not be running a counterfeit copy of Windows.

You may also notice the following symptoms:

The computer desktop background is black, and you receive the following error message on the bottom right corner of the screen:

  • This copy of Windows is not genuine

You receive the following error message when you view the System Properties: (Control Panel / System and Security / System)

  • You must activate today. Activate Windows now

If you try to use slmgr.vbs /dlv to view the licensing status, you receive the following message:

  • Error: 0x80070005 Access denied: the requested action requires elevated privileges

Note: This error message may also occur when a command that is being executed requires an elevated command prompt and is unrelated to the issue discussed here.

How to fix?

To resolve this pc error, you can either disable the policy setting (Method A), or edit the permissions to provide the Licensing Service the required permissions (Method B).

  • Method A: Disable the Plug and Play Policy
    1. Determine the source of the policy . To do this, follow these steps:

    a. On the client experiencing the Activation error, run the Resultant Set of Policy wizard by clicking Start, Run and entering rsop.msc as the command.

    b. Visit the following location:
    Computer Configuration / Policies / Windows Settings /Security Settings / System Services /

    If the Plug and Play service is configured through a Group Policy setting, you see it here with settings other than Not Defined. Additionally, you can see which Group Policy is applying this setting.

    2. Disable the Group Policy settings and force the Group Policy to be reapplied.

    a. Edit the Group Policy that is identified in Step 1 and change the setting to “Not Defined.” Or, follow the section below to add the required permissions for the Network Service account.
    b. Force the Group Policy setting to reapply: gpupdate /force (a restart of the client is sometimes required)
  • Method B: Edit the permissions of the Group Policy:
    1. Open the Group Policy that is identified in Method A, Step 1 above, and open the corresponding Group Policy setting.
    2. Click the Edit Security button, and then click the Advanced button.
    3. In the Advanced Security Settings for Plug and Play window click Add and then add the SERVICE account. Then, click OK
    4. Select the following permissions in the Allow section and then click OK:
    Query template
    Query status
    Enumerate dependents
    User-defined control
    Read permissions

    Note: The Previous rights are the minimum required permissions.

    5. Run gpupdate /force after you apply the previous permissions to the Group Policy setting.

    6. Verify that the appropriate permissions are applied with the following command:
    sc sdshow plugplay

    The following are the rights applied to the Plug and Play service in SDDL:


    (A;;CC LC SW LO CR RC ;;;SU is an Access Control Entry (ACE) that allows the following rights to "SU" (SDDL_SERVICE – Service logon user)

    A: Access Allowed
    CC: Create Child
    LC: List Children
    SW: Self Write
    LO: List Object
    CR: Control Access
    RC: Read Control
    SU: Service Logon User

    Note: If there are no GPO's in place, then another activity may have changed the default registry permissions. To work around this issue, perform the following steps:

    1> On the computer that is out of tolerance, start Registry Editor.
    2> Right-click the registry key HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-20, and select Permissions...
    3> If the NETWORK SERVICE is not present, click Add...
