    Hi guys! So my comp was suddenly hit with the whole unauthenticated copy of Windows thing (Windows 7) after I had a hard drive crash. I managed to get my machine up and running, but the blasted thing won't update, Windows Defender won't run, nothing! I ran /scannow and the prompt says 'Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.'
    I have an HP machine with OEM software on it, so I don't have a physical disk. Here's my comp info.

    Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.2

    It says that access is denied when I try to open the CBS log.

    Please copy the CBS.log to the desktop and compress it and upload.

    I did a little digging and managed to (I think) fix the issue. Boy, do I feel dumb. I went on a massive software updating spree and I guess I fixed it. I had 136 Windows updates and Defender is working now. So yay me!
