Windows causes BIOSOD. IF you have a copy of Windows 7 RC on your disks and it an active partitoin. Windows blue screens. Same effect with lost Windows ID. Lots of BLUE SCreens.

This attack goes to Windows ID file and eather deletes it or corupts it.

The result is lots of blue screens.

Solution ( I think so fare ) is SYSTEM RESTORE to a piont where the file is not on the computer.

I had two blue screeens posting this. I think the reason fore them is I have Windows 7 RC on my bach up drive. I took it out. hopfully no more blue screens. I will will post more later.

Having the RC on a different drive will not cause bluescreens. I'm not sure why you're posting this altogether, but if you want help then you're going to have to be more specific about what the problem is and what caused it, and you're also going to have to write your posts in a way that we can actually understand them.

Spelling and grammar PLEASE.

What windows ID are you talking about? Your activation key? Afaik as above that doesn't cause blue screens.

Your ID that is tied to your hotmail account, Sky drive, and XBOX live...

Losing this doesn't cause BSODs. My Win7 HTPC isn't even aware that I have a LiveID, and it runs.

Edit: Ok, the OP might be talking about the serial key... but like the other poster said, not having one doesn't BSOD.

I guess the OP was describing a "non genuine windows experience" with black desktop, random reboots and all that? Could happen if the activation files (WPA.DBL/BAK) were corrupted. Doubt it's a hack/malware, more likely HDD failure or something else resulting in data corruption.

If that's the case unless the activation keys have been backed up with, e.g., ABR, then it's reactivate/reinstall. Running a HDD diagnostic would be recommended too.
