hi. I updated my windows vista service pack 2 and now there is a problem somewhere. The bottom of the screen says this copy of windows is not genuine and im getting a pop up box saying windows modules installer has stopped working and has closed. I can still acess internet and files though. There,s an update pending which dosn't seem to be downloading as its at 0% ?? Any clues. Its asking to reinstall from original disc and im not sure if i can do that or not. Would a system restore help? Thanks
