View Full Version : Windows Vista Activation Notice

06-02-2010, 08:29 PM
I bought an HP computer that was pre-loaded with Vista Home Premium about 2.5 years ago. Twice now my desktop background (photo) has disappeared, and in the system tray of the taskbar, there was a Windows Re-activation Icon.

My computer seems to run fine otherwise. What gives?

how long has this been happening? it may have been caused by a recent windows update

It's only been happening for 2-3 days, and the Windows update that I installed on May 31 was KB981793 - Cumulative Time Zone update.

You might have to reactivate your copy via phone since online method never seems to work as of recent. That is you have a legit licence for it.

Can you post your 3 digit product ID ? You can find it under the system page. something like xxx-123-xxxxxxxx
