Activating Windows

Got up this morning and switched on my PC to be confronted with the message " .....components of your pc have significantly changed since you first activated windows, you have to re-activate windows" --- or something similar.
I went through the process and re-activated without any problems, why did this happen? I have not changed any hardware, apart from a new usb wireless unit, for over six months!
Is this a glitch? or is something else wrong with my pc?

Just a glitch - perhaps a corrupted file or the like... don't worry about it unless it happens again very soon in which case it migth be necessary to investigate further.
