Have you tried phoning microsoft for activation as I think I remember reading that you can no longer activate via the web

The instructions explain where to phone if you have a problem.

It's easily done. I mistook an 8 for a B.

I know what the code is but there must be a limit on the amount of times you can register it.

I have had this before and had to phone microsoft. They have then arranged for me to register via the phone. (You need a phone by the PC).
