    I took defender off the start menu because it was annoying me and I already
    had Norton and AVG running - yes i realise they do the same thing and
    defender does something different - i was told it didn't. So now my computer
    is in limited functionality mode after failing validation.

    Will Vista fail validation after taking defender off the start menu?
    What can I do to fix it - other then re-installing Vista?

    Thanks.

  2. 1) Click the option Access computer with reduced functionality
    2) A Browser will open, type: %windir%\system32 into the address field
    3) Find the file cmd.exe
    4) Right Click on the cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator
    5) Type: cscript %windir%\System32\slmgr.vbs /ilc %windir%\System32\licensing\ppdlic\Security-Licensing-SLC-ppdlic.xrm-ms
    6) Hit the Enter key
    7) Reboot 2 times
