  • Hi,

     

    You will see this message when security processor checks the trusted store and other system integrity checks. Let’s follow the steps below to troubleshoot it:

     

    1) Click the option that launches an Internet Browser

    2) Type: %windir%\system32 into the address field

    3) Find the file cmd.exe

    4) Right-click on cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator

    5) Type: cscript %windir%\System32\slmgr.vbs /ilc %windir%\System32\licensing\ppdlic\Security-Licensing-SLC-ppdlic.xrm-ms

    6) Hit the Enter key

    7) Reboot twice

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    Regards,

    Bruce

  • Is there a fix for this?  I have it on 2 servers now.  Should have stuck with Server 2003.....

  • Very late on parade, I know, but this error can also appear when an Anti-Virus is not compatible with machines which haven't been updated to the latest Service Pack.

    The solution is to uninstall the AV, update the machine to the latest Service Pack, and then reinstall the AV.
