Hi.I don't think it is there activation number,When Googled folk were phoning that number complaining of pop ups from a Microsoft source.Maybe someone will have the uk.Phone number to give you.

Is this the norm
Oh I forgot its microsoft ;(

it's the number they give when things go wrong - and the option is there for validation

think they get cost of OS fron phone call before they do it

The activation number I have for "office" is 0800 018 8354

OK it might not be what you want but they can probably give you another number

if no address is forthcoming ring PC World and throw yourself on their mercy for a phone number.
