Chicken and Egg

Owing to family illness I have been unable to set up my new computer. Now that things are better I have started to do thsi but have met a problem. I seems that I have passed my Windows activation date. I have been prompted to re-activate Windows by sending an e-mail. My question is, "Can I install my broadband connection if Windows is not activated?" If not what do I do first? I have E-mail on my old PC.

You should have an option to activate via phone which will work, I have done this for a friend that had no internet connection.

Strawballs is right. try 0870 60 10 100. If you don't get help there, ask for a number where you will get help.
