Anyone know what I can do. I have booted my laptop uptoday and it says I need to activate windows. Though I thought I already had! Though when the activate screen comes up it doesnt load properly. It is just a box with two 'internet' pictures looking like they are loading. though it has been like that for the last 30 mins! anyone any suggestions.
Adz - it won't help, but I had the same problem. When the damn thing finally loaded, it said that it wanted to reactivate because I had made so many hardware changes - which I had not. Anyway, it requried me to telephone a free number, type my present activations as shown on the screen, then gave me a new activation to type in. Annoying but simple.
The advantage of booting in safe mode is that it stoppped a lot of the other programs starting, and I think it is these that the activation program is interfering with - hence 30 minutes etc.
