I had 2 computers last week with auto updates on, mcafee vse 8.7i enterprise administered through epo. get a failure to authenticate windows. Ran MS offline scanner, no malware, multiple warnings not a legal windows installation, update fails, system restore fails, then reboot and bsod. No f8 for safe mode. The only 2 win 7 computers with auto updates turned on exhibited this behavior. Complete reinstall of course, anyone else have the same problem?

No I think you are alone. Memory problems can cause the not legal error message so I suggest that you run memtest86 for at least three passes to test the memory on the problem computers

Lenovo had a complete system check, only reported driver issue. System restore would not work, safe mode would not work, 2 comp in one week, one lenovo 1 hp, setting up a new Lenovo today update failed, and reverted, I turned off updates frustrating.
