View Thread: Windows Activation Scare

    Suddenly my legitimate Win7 Pro popped up a message saying it was not genuine, and I needed to reactivate.

    I reentered my product key, and it said that it was no good, and directed me to go online to purchase a new product key!

    I was getting ready to raise hell with someone, when I retried the product activation wizard after rebooting, and it finally re-activated my copy.

    Has anyone else experienced this?  What could be the cause?
