I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm getting an annoying problem at the minute when trying to access google.com or use the google searchbar within any browser on my windows PC and android phone.

I get the following error message A license has expired on the Proxy, and your request is not permitted: "The SGOS license has expired"

I installed Firefox to try and see if it was an issue just with INternet Explorer but the same message appears in Firefox as well when I try to navigate to the Google website.

I know that 5 updates were installed to the PC on the 15th so the issue may lie with one of these but I just wondered if anyone else was experiencing a similar problem?

Hi to all on TSG

I have Google for my homepage and all was fine when I switched off last night. This morning, I clicked on Explorer quick launch (as I have done for years) but instead of seeing the familiar Google page, it was blank with the following message:
"A license has expired on the Proxy, and your request is not permitted. The SGOS license has expired"

I don't use a proxy and my settings are correct, i.e. Never dial a connection.
To try and solve this issue, I used
CCleaner
Virus checked my PC
Malwarebytes
SuperAntiSpyware (free v)

What bothers me is that I tried my other laptop with the same results (same error message)
I even installed Firefox but couldn't use the search because it gave the same message.

I am able to click on the URL and get to websites and even my shortcut links work. Even updates work fine. I'm only having this problem with Google.

I used a different search engine and see that another person tried all different things and even restored her computer back to a previous setting but all to no avail.

Anyway ideas, please?

Many thanks

Recently I had the trial version of Ad-Aware Pro, but I switched to free. However, whenever I start up Ad-Aware, it notifies me that my license has expired and asks if I want to revert back to the free version, along with the options of renewing the license or entering the registration code. I always click 'Revert', but it still prompts me every time. I tried reinstalling the free version, but it still does this.
How do I fix this? Perhaps it's something in the registry?

Every time I try to open a document or Excel I get a pop up that my
"Microsoft Home and Student 2010 Trial has ended"
and goes on to request that I upgrade. The lowest cost upgrade is Euro99 ! Considering that I am now 66 and have little requirement for setting up further documents at present and only need to open or source 3 or 4 at most, this is an expense I don't need.
First of all I did not enter into a 'Trial' so maybe it got downloaded 'hidden' or 'not obvious' in another download. The documents and one Excel spread sheet that I require to open and update were set up in 2009 and I have been able to access them without problem up to a couple of weeks ago.
I bought a new computer in January 2012 - therefore it doesn't look like it was a trial that came with the computer - being now 16 months old?
I have tried to open these documents with every other option available but none are successful. Neither does it let me copy or carry out any other function other than 'Open'
Anyone got a solution?

Thank you for your time and help....................

Hi everyone,
I have a problem with my Microsoft Office 2013. My licence has expired and I have time until the 14 of July to fix the problem.
I saw there is an Office 2016 coming out so I don't really want to buy a new licence.. is there any way to re-activate my 2013 version in the meantime?
I know there are some software that let you activate Office, but I honestly don't know if I can trust them and how to use them..

Thank you for your help!!

A license does not expire. If you had a subscription to 0365, you need to renew it.

This virus takes control at startup by initiating various command prompt windows and a multitude of odd processes in task manager including, but not limited to, several chrome.exe processes and gplyra.exe. Computer runs very hot.After about 30 seconds a screen pops up completely hijacking the screen which prevents you from accessing the desktop and using task manager. The virus also created its own user account and the only way to turn the laptop off is by holding the power button.

I had an OEM license for Vista and I bought a Vista to W7/Pro upgrade from MS 2 years ago. It came in a box and had its own product key which I entered after the upgrade. It was a clean install. I am fully aware that it is no longer an OEM license.

From an MS licensing perspective, is it now seen as a full retail license? If it is not, what is its designation?

A:Clarify my license status

It's a full license for most purposes - although the jury is out as to whether it can be moved to a new machine that doesn't also have a pre-existing qualifying Windows license.

Yes' it's a qualifying License for the WIndows 10 free upgrade, if that's the underlying reason for your question.

Hello,

This machine is a very common model in my environment and I have done many fresh windows installations using the OEM license key without issue. however, on this particular machine, it reports it cannot activate because it cannot contact the KMS for activation.
Again, to clarify, this is the OEM product key that has been automatically pulled over from UEFI and NOT a MAK/KMS key.

A:Grace period activation expiring very soon-need new key or help

You have a KMS Volume License Key for Enterprise - such Keys require activation at private servers, not at MS's public servers.

From where did you get this Key? You need to contact your System Admin for assistance.

You will lose NO data when it goes out of grace period - but MSE will start a 30day countdown if installed, and cease working at the end.

My girlfriend has a dell computer, that came pre-installed with XP. We had to reformat it and reinstall XP with whatever disk comes with the dell. She recently restarted her computer and it says that the 30 day grace period is over and she will have to put in the product key to activate windows. She put the product key number we had to put in when we reinstalled. (This number is on a sticker on the side of the dell) After inputing the number several times, it still says it will not work, and she can't get to her desktop anymore without this 30 day grace period thing. I'm going over there saturday to take a look at it, but it seems like I can't avoid a call to microsoft. I am going to call the number 866-234-6024. Do you think they will provide me with a new product key after giving them the one on the side of the computer? I can't activate over online because it doesn't sound like it's possiable to get past the "30 day grace period is over screen".
Any help with this situation is much appreciated. We both have reports due tuesday for school, and she needs to get back on to the computer to reach them. Thanks again.

The result is a blank where you expect to see the machine id. The error did say hardware id, but there is no machine id displayed when it should be.
MACHINE ID
-------------

How can this be corrected?  I would?ve done a system restore, but the oldest date available is after the problem was occurring.  
I'm not sure just how long this was occurring on my machine, but I did have some virus trouble a short while back, which I think is the likely cause. My machine seems good otherwise, Malwarewarebytes, McAfee cleaned me up. 

I downloaded MGADiag.exe, ran it, but the results look good to me, I don't identify any issues there. 
I'm posting a slightly shortened version of the report here.

When does the grace period change from 90 to 10 days (and from when)? I upgraded from 7 to 10 on July 26 and show no updates, Anniversary or otherwise. It has been 13 days since then and my computer shows no Roll-back available. Is my 10 days up?

I want to adjust the grace period between appearance of a password-protected screen saver and acceptance of password. So that if the password protected screen saver comes on I can just wiggle the mouse within a few seconds rather than enter a password.

Here's the registry tweak I used that works for Vista but apparently not for Win7

Tweak Library ? Increase the screen saver grace period.

Is there a reg tweak or freeware program for Win7 that will do the same?

A:Increase screen saver grace period?

Hi y2ken,

Check out this thread on Microsoft Answers, there may be a solution for you: Wanted: How To Set Screen Saver Grace Period in Windows 7

NOTE: Registry modifications can be harmful to your computer if not done properly. Please back up the registry itself, and any important data you wouldn't want to lose, before performing a registry edit.

Let me know what you come up with

Cheers,

Every Vista DVD includes the ability to install any edition of Vista without a product key. When you install without a product key, you get an automatic 30 day evaluation period. This probably isn't news to anyone. What may be news to you, however, is that you can easily extend the 30-day Windows Vista grace period to 120 days. No hacks required. This is an official, supported operation directly from Microsoft. To extend the grace period another 30 days, simply start a command prompt as Administrator, and issue this command: slmgr -rearm Reboot for the change to take effect, and voila, you have 30 more days. You can only extend three times, so the total grace period for a Vista evaluation is 120 days. Source: Pctorium.com

Hi. I bought Windows 7 64bit home edition on a disk with my new Novatech pc over a year ago, and it successfully activated. Until 30 days ago it ran fine. Then the Windows not genuine pop got going with a link for activating online. I used slmgr /dlv which showed that the computer thinks my Windows is in its 'grace period', on a countdown from 30 days to 0 (tomorrow!).

Any suggestion, anyone? Here's what did NOT work:

Online activation (nothing happens)

Phone activation

Microsoft support - phoned them.
They talked me through a few things that did not work, then gave up.

slui.exe, scannow, chkdsk

Hi,
This is a very quick and probably easy question.
I am offering regular KMS client servers, so the customer do not need to do any licensing as it will just happen out of the box.
BUT, we also want to offer a Bring Your Own license option, so the end customer can insert their own key.
So,I understand how to change the keys on our Windows Servers, and I wonder whether this builds will accept any OEM key as a replacement for the default KMS client one or not?

Many thanks.

hello again...

dang this thing is a pain!!

new issue today, trying to save a tiny .rtf file to external USB drive, and get "semaphore timeout period has expired" message and have to save to local drive instead. also get the message if i drag and drop into the desired location.

perhaps related to the issue i occasionally have: the machine loses connection to the external drive and either the folder shows empty (it's not!) or doesn't show as even being connected. little blue light on the drive will sometimes go out, sometimes not, but still no access...

EDIT: i have two verbatim USB drive attached... one or the other of them will occasional disappear from This PC and when i look at device manager there is an error on that drive. i disconnect and reconnect and the drives show up and the error in device manger goes away... there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why this happens. when it does and i try to save something to the drive, that's when i get the "semaphore timeout period has expired"

i have tried to update drivers using windows search online and it always says i have the best drivers loaded....

the drives have been checked for errors and windows reports none... there is still quite a bit of available space on them (80+ gigs on each) and when they are connected and live, i can access files with no problem... it just decides to seemingly drop the drive randomly...

thanks for any help...

I maintain some software that makes a tcp socket connection to a different piece of software and sends data back and forth (pretty basic stuff there). We use boost asio to handle reading and writing of data over the socket connection. We have a client that
has deployed this software on Windows7. The client has been having issues with our software not being able to maintain a reliable socket connection. One thing I have noticed is that quite often the networking callback are receiving the error: The semaphore
timeout period has expired.

This error is not coming from anywhere in our code (or the boost code). I've done some research on it and I found a Microsoft Knowledge base article on this error for Windows XP (support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/325487). I've seen a few people ask questions about
this error on Windows7, but they're all in regards to moving files to different drives, nothing regarding network connections.

What does this error mean in regards to Windows7? Does the knowledge base article I mentioned still apply to Windows7?

I have x1 Desktop and x1 Laptop.
They are both on Win XP Pro and are fully updated.
I have always networked them using Cat5 cables and an active hub and had a shared Internet connection on the Desktop and had no massive problems.

one day recently I plugged in the Laptop and turned it on. Not only could I not connect to the net but neither PC could access the other.

I have run the Network setup wizard on the Desktop and then on the Laptop and managed to mess with things so the ICS is now working again. But neither PC can see the other.

I get the error message:

\\Desktop is not accessible. (sometimes this part says: 'MSHome is not accessible')

You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

The network path was not found. (sometimes this part says: 'the semaphore timeout period has expired' or 'The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available')


There is only one user on each PC, ME.

I have opened command prompt and ran ipconfig and then ran 'ping'. Both PC's can ping each other with no problems but I can still not access files on each PC. I HAVE shared folders on both and they should be seen.

Once you activate your copy of XP, everything should be just as you left it.

If you had specialist software, you'd be able to access the data but you'd be limited as to what you could do with it
