    I have installed Windows Vista Beta 2 and have been working with it for a
    couple of days, but since a few days I have been getting somce licensing
    error screens like every 2 hours. I first ignored it, but after my first
    reboot Vista won't startup anymore. When it starts loading the desktop I get
    the following error:

    -----------------------------------------
    Licensing Error
    You can not logon because you have not activated your copy of Windows

    Please activate your copy of Windows and try again

    Error information:
    Code: 0xC004F027
    Description: The software licensing service reported that the license is
    tampered
    -----------------------------------------

    First of all, I have never tampered with anything. I just did the install,
    installed my apps (Photoshop, Arles, Kaspersky, Mirc, MSN Live, Office 2007
    Beta 2, FireFox, ICQ, WinIso) and that's it. So I have no idea why it says I
    have tampered the license? I wouldn't even know how.

    Anyway, it tells me to please activate my copy, but how do I do this if I
    can't login? Is there anyway to fix this? I would hate to re-install
    everything agian :(

    Thanks for your help.

  2. Activation is like a kid calling home from summer camp to talk to mummy. If
    the kid can't talk to mummy, the kid will just sit in the corner and stew,
    and refuse to play nice. Are you connected to the internet?

  5. I am getting the same error... I have not tampered with anything at all.
    It says:

    You can not log on because you have not activated your copy of Windows.

    Please activate your copy of Windows and try again.

    Error information:
    Code: 0xC004F027
    Description: The software licensing service reported that the license is
    tampered.

    I activated this morning and then logged out, then logged back in, now it
    gives me this. I can't even log in to reactivate! It just lets me open the
    "Contact Microsoft to help resolve this problem" and that is the only thing I
    can do.

  6. Yeah, I'm getting the same problem. I just activated, then logged off, back
    on, and now I can't log in because it says that I haven't activated. I had
    14 days left to activate and it shouldn't run out by now, and I am always
    online through my LAN.

    I know I'm posting a little late, however I also have the same issue.
    had activated yesterday, and now after a little playing I have reache
    the same error. When clicking the contact MS button, I am able to ge
    Opera (my default browser) open by clicking "search knowledgebase".
    From here I was able to get Explorer.exe (c:\windows\explorer.exe) t
    load from Opera. This now gives me a task bar, etc. I am unable t
    open the control panel to reactivate (It opens then closes ver
    quickly). I do however have a semi functional computer. Steps leadin
    to this problem were uninstall Trend PC-Cillen 14 Beta trial, an
    install Kaspersky 6.0.0.300.

    Does anyone have anything else to add? or know of a way to activat
    without the control panel?

    Thanks

    Dave

    Edit: Version number

    Edit: Seems I may have fixed it. When I was able to get the task ba
    up, opened Kaspersky, updated, then disabled Proactive defences.
    Rebooted, and all appears well

    Hi Davey,
    When you search for the error number 0xC004F027, you find posts from
    Kent_Diego dated the 25th of June.
    He writes that Kapersky can be the reason for this.
