A snip from the gssScreenSaver Video Screensaver

Installation is easy as 1, 2, 3.
1. Save gssScreenSaver.exe to a folder on your computer (either a new folder or an existing one)
2. Double-click gssScreenSaver.exe to extract its files. (an SCR, a movie to play, logo image and 3 support files)
3. Right-click the gssScreenSaver.scr and choose ‘Install’

The windows Screen Saver Settings dialog will appear. This is where you control how long the computer is idle before the screen saver activates. The settings button allows you to change the video, logo image and option to display only one or the other. The preview button allows for an immediate demonstration of the screensaver. But for now it can be close.

If you have any questions or comments (yes, the video is pirated from thePirateBay because I liked it), you can submit them through this form:

Issues with Windows 7 Reporting Counterfeit? Try this:

You will need a VALID license key. I have experienced this error on OEM editions hard-locked to the motherboard, and sometimes this helps to re-authenticate the system. I have also seen this on units with ‘Refurbished’ Authentication Stickers.

1.Click on the Windows button. Inside the search box type in CMD
2.Right click on CMD => Choose Run as Administrator
3.Inside the Command Prompt windows copy and paste the following commands

net stop sppsvc (wait for the service to stop before trying to enter any more commands)

CD %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform
REN tokens.dat tokens.bak
net start sppsvc
slui.exe
4.Reactivate using the System applet in the Control Panel
(Click on the Windows button. Inside the search box type in System)

5.Once done please restart your computer.

If this fails and you continue to have issues with a known good license, a likely scenario is the hard drive is having issues – even if S.M.A.R.T. status reports no issues. Clone to a new drive.
